I am new at this, but I am attempting to locate information on my mother's paternal grandmother, Icy Wable. She was born in Kingwood, West Virginia. She was married to Thomas Samples. They had quite a few chikdren (I think), one being my grandfather, Robert Patrick Samples. They also had a son, Thomas, who died when he was 17, born in 1924.
My grandfather died in 1981, and there has been little contact with this side of the family. Family lore is that Icy was Cherokee. My mother remembers seeing her ceremonial gowns as a child. I haven't been able to really find anything on Icy, or her family of orgin.
Has anyone come across any information on Icy or has any helpful information it would very appreciated.
