Re: John Pinckney Painter, b NC
We must be distant cousins.I have been researching my mom's side of the family, and have traced back to James Madison Painter, mother Nancy, wife-Cynthia Gee.My mother had said that we had Cherokee blood, but she never knew at what point we inherited it.Nancy is a puzzle for sure.I do believe that the father of James was Cherokee, but is difficult to prove.James Madison Painter would be my ggggGrandfather.
My mom had an uncle that she said looked pure indian, but other uncles didn't. (by this time they were a small fraction indian, although carried the genetic traits.
If you uncover any info on Nancy and her elusive husband or father to James, please contact me.Jean
