A few things:
I believe Grandma Goldie's mother Callie (caldonia Latil) died when she was about 6ys. I remember her telling me she was raised somewhat in a convent or with nuns? Maybe because her father William Eckels was a steamboat pilot. (I saw his occupation in 1890 census)...
I heard the story of the Indian ancestry possibility but cannot find the connection. I believe Goldies grand parents were Latils on her mother's side.
Also, Callie remarried in 1904 to Henry Griggsly. She died a few months later...
Goldies death certificate listed "Sallie Latil" as her mother...and father as William Eckles, but there were many mistakes in spelling on forms. One record of a census spells it ECOLS, but same family...
