Was Sitting Bull a Nance?

My Dad was told when he was younger that an ancestor of ours by the surname of Nance was Sitting Bull's Grandpa. I find this hard to believe and am only trying to prove or disprove it. It would be an honor, though, if such a great man were related to me.

Does anyone have any info they could share?
Thank you.

Looking for the parents of John Bell Grimes.

He is my Great-Great Grandpa on my dad's mother's side. He was born Dec. 1, 1865 in Williamson, Illinois and died Feb. 8, 1899.

My dad said John Bell was not forth-coming about his background and would not tell people where he was from. I know he is Native American and I also heard about his wife dying i think in child-bit=rth; and john Bell would carry the child on his back as a papoose while working in the field.

Any Info would be greatly appreciated. my Grandma always wanted to do a family tree, but she passed away before she could do one and now I am trying to do it. I am thinking about turning our family tree into a book along with stories from the olden days; and I would dedicate it to Grandma and all of our ancestors.

Thank you all.
