Hi Brenda, Thanks for the link...very interesting. I don't know why the Gen. would attend. I,m pretty sure I'm related to him (he's my fourth cousin). There have always been lots of talk & rumors about an Indian ancestor from my Uncles, Aunts & Grandparents, but I have not been able to find it yet. I'll be sure to let you know of any info. I run across.
By the way...Mary Jane Sickles, b. 1876 was my 1st. cousin. Theo. Thurston Sickles, b. 1829 was my gr-gr-grandfather. Jacob Berry Sickles, b.1855 was my gr-grandfather. William Jacob Sickles, b. 1883 was my grandfather.
