My mother talked about a family member being Indian in Jackson Co., and I can see where it could have been several people. From the history it can be seen there was plenty of mixed relationships. Talking about her Lane side, she said her grgrandfather was offerred land due to his Indian blood. The Indian genealogy pages have several marriages with names familiar to Jackson Co. Wyoming Co. has many who are on the Rolls. Several of the men were Indian Scouts, and there are no definitive records about their wives. Shadrach Rice was on a mission where they brought back nearly 100 women and children from raids on Indian lands. I figure it was common for some of them to marry. Too bad we can't prove anything. I don't know about some wanting to be Indian, but one of my aunts was said to have moved far away, and to have been very unhappy that she looked Indian there in Jackson Co. I don't see how to change my address to Housema2003@aol.com
. The above is incorrect.
