I confirmed ancestor of Indian lineage on the 1860 Federal Census.
My father thought he had Indian in his bloodline but we never knew for sure. On the 1860 Federal Census both my great great grandmother and her third husband record as Indian. A picture of three men show the Indian lineage. The Federal Census was our proof of Indian blood. I know my ancestor lived on Indian land. I have been to the land twice. Over two hundred arrows, etc. are preserved by present owner of said land. I don't know the tribe though.
