ok...I figured out more, I believe. Chief Tanaghrisson is my direct ancestor. He was a Catawba born, adopted by the Seneca and he died in the late 1700s in Pennsylvania. His daughter Maths (Nundawaono) married my ancestor John Owens, the Welsh trader, in a Seneca blanket ceremony in Tyler, Virginia (now West Virginia) they were my great grandparents, 5 generations back from what I can see.

Elizabeth's father must have been one half Kishpoko Shawnee, because the records state his mother was Indian...but why my cousins insist she was an adopted Cherokee (Elizabeth) I do not know. I know, also, her husband called her a "Chichapoo Indian" on her death certificate. Kishpoko Shawnee is the only tribe that makes sense, becase of the geographic location.

Where the stories about an adopted Cherokee ancestor, and her being Elizabeth Edgell, I heard when I was a kid come from, I do not know...unless they meant it was either Ida (my grandmother who died when I was 2 years old, in 1960)but that makes no sense, she could not possibly have been born in 1838...or somebody else...?

I also discovered I am a direct descendant of "Indian Billy" Ice (or Iaac) brother of Mary Ice, mother of Tecumtha. ...but they were white people adopted by the Shawnee...Mary and Billy Ice were children of Mary Galloway, and Frederick Iaac. Immigrants from Amsterdam and Scotland.

My grandmother was Ida Owens, she married a Forrester who was descended from Elizabeth Edgell. It appears there may be Indian blood on both the Forrester, and Owens sides...diluted by Scottish, Welsh, and Dutch.

I hope that clears most of it up?
