I am seeking info on my maternal family (Boydston and Brown & Hatfield and Davis))and their Indian heritage. They are from south central and southern Ohio. First I will say that I am not trying to deny or change who I am which is "black". Its on my birth certificate. It's what I've been told all my life, and its all that I am and ever have been as far as my culture. However, I can honestly say that most of my 55 years, Ive been curious about "who I am", because when looking in the mirror, I see very little features of black. For generations, people in our family just "accepted" what they were told about our ethnicity. BUT...besides beeing curious, I think its a God given right to know the truth. And its certainly something worth exploring. Oral histories suggest a strong Indian presence in our bloodline. If you have any info on the Boydston/Brown and Hatfield/Davis families with Indian connections please reply to genica_57@yahoo.com
