Those are My Dotsons that Y'all are Speaking of. I am a 16th Great Granddaughter of another Indian Chief, Chief Eagle Plume, of the Virginia Iroquois. I was Working on tracing the Later Lineages of my Direct Dods/Dodson Line, and just happened to Stumble onto Chief Joseph Raincrow. It seems he was a Great Uncle of Mine. I have Very Little Information, but it seems, according to what I just found out, that Family had a Great Deal to do with the Cherokee Nation, the Starr Clan, and Cherokee Tribal Lands and Politics.
I would Appreciate Pictures, Stories, etc. too, to carry this Lineage to my Future Genrations, so they too can be Proud.
I have Known that I was Different ALL of my Life, and I know now why. I am Native American, and it makes me Proud!
I am Proud to know the Strength of my People, and the last time I went to Oklahoma with my Husband, it was like "Coming Home." I Understand why now.
Cousins, I send y'all my Love, and would be Proud to Share ALL the Family Information that I have Currently with you, so Y'all will know who else you have in your Family Tree.
I have thus Far, found Several Famous Outlaws and Several Prominent Lawmen. I am working on the Info for the Lawmen and Outlaws at Present time.
There is Myra Belle Shirley (Belle Starr), Frank and Jesse James, the Dalton Gang, Cole Younger and the Younger Gang,
Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp and his Brothers, and I am Working on Jeff Davis and Robert Edward Lee, Sr. ( No Connection found yet, but that remains as a Work - In - Progress).
We have a LONG and Proud Tradition of Famous and Enigmatic People in our Family Tree, and I Encourage Highly hanging onto our Family Heritage of Native American Blood as Hard as we can, to Strengthen our People.
I hope one day, to have the Pleasure of Meeting Y'all! Love Y'all Very, Very Much! I am Proud to call you Family!
