Re: Christian Schlechty-m. in Darke Co 1839
I am descended from this Puderbaugh/Schlechty line of Darke Co., OH, and wondered if you knew anything about Magdalena Dommain being Native American or maybe half?Years ago my late g-aunt gave me a pedigree chart (I don't have access to any of her research for further details, unfortunately, just the chart) where she had typed next to Magdalena Dommain the words "Indian girl."On another copy I can no longer find she wrote, "Indian mother"; it might have been in reference to what was written on her tombstone, but I don't remember for sure.Then on the back of the pedigree chart my g-aunt had penciled in the name of a tribe, with no documentation given for how she knew which tribe.Just curious if anyone else had come across something about this.
FWIW, I've also noticed at the Family Search site that someone has transcribed an IGI record for Magdalena Dommain as "Magdalena Dohrman."Don't know which is correct since I've never viewed the original source myself.
