I am new to genealogy and have come to information that I am unsure how to substantiate (or disprove). It has been passed down (including in a published book) that my 6th great-grandfather (Johann Jakob Steinkoenig) married a Seneca Indian named Aliquippa in a "blanket ceremony". No date is given for the ceremony, however I do know that he immigrated to the U.S. on the Bilander Vernon in 1747 and his wife died that year, after which he reportedly married Aliquippa. How can I research this further?
