RACHEL M. WILSON-NORDSTROM-RIDLEY'S HERITAGE IN MN Updated May 10, 2005
About Our Family Research
I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN OF MY SIOUX HERITAGE, MY GRANDPARENTS BEING FROM SISSETEON SD. AND AFTER MY MOTHER DIED YOUNG AND MY INHERITING THE LAND SHE INHERITED WITH HER BROTHER AND SISTERS FROM HER DAD, I NEVER KNEW MUCH ELSE SINCE MY GRANDPARENTS WERE GONE LONG BEFORE ME. RECENTLY IN THE NEWS AND MY AUNT CONTACTING ME, WITH THE MYSTIC LAKE CASINO LAWSUIT FROM THE MAY 1886 CENSUS, WE CAME TO FIND OUT, MY GREAT-MOTHER, MOM'S GRANDMA, WAS ON THAT CENSUS. I HAVE KNOWN SO MUCH, OR SO I THOUGHT, BUT DIDN'T KNOW AS MUCH AS I THOUGHT. I AM NOW SEARCHING BACK NOT ONLY ON THE INFORMATION THAT I MUST NEED, BUT WHAT I WANT TO KNOW AS WELL. I NEVER MET MY GRANDPARENTS, AND I LOST MY MOTHER VERY YOUNG, THIS IS MY WAY OF REACHING FOR THEM.
