That's my 6th great grandmother!

I did not know she was my ancestor ( through Betsy, directly) until recently and could NOT be more proud! I knew I was British & Irish, but no idea I had native ancestry. And what about ancestry!!!!!!! HER great-great grandfather was a mix of Cherokee, Chalakatha & Kishpoko Black Nations who married a Cherokee. She was an activist before that word became a thing. I am so proud to call her family. I am going to try to track down my relatives. If any if the see this, I can be found on Facebook. If my name does not show, they may leave me a message here or the mods may pass on my name & email. Meanwhile I will look for them.
