I am looking for info on my husband's grandpa. The grandpa's name is he believes is Claude Jack Moore who married Mary Blakely. mary passed away in 1993.
I would appreciate any info you can provide.
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?
He is my Grandma's (on my Dad's side) dad and he died when she was very young. He was born 1893 and died 1916. I have these people as his dad and grand-parents. Parents: Thomas henry or Vala Smoot 1857 and Theodosia Goodman. Grand-parent: Samuel Winiford Smoot 1847-1899
Thank you for giving me of your valuable time.
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.
