No offense...but I've met more people whose grandmothers were the daughters of Cherokee chiefs than I think is actually possible. As for me, there's a great aunt or second cousin or something on my dad's side who's really into genealogy. My paternal grandmother's ancestors were French and came over to Canada in the early 1600s, then migrated to New Orleans. My paternal grandfather was of primarily English and Irish ancestry, and his family was traced back to 16th century London. The family lore is that at some point in the early 19th century four brothers came over from England and one went in each direction...my paternal grandfather would be the product of the one who went south. My mom's Ojibwe: Turtle Mountain Clan Chippewa. I'd be interested in what a genetic analysis would show.
