Cantleys & Indian Blood

I work at the Raleigh County Library and was talking to a visitor today from Charlottesville, VA who is a Cantley descendant and he said that somewhere down the line the Cantley's had an ancestor that was called Red Jacket that fell in with the Indians. He said that my cheekbones were high, my dark hair all showed it. If so, where down the line did the Cantley ancestor and what Indian tribe did he fall in with, or is this just a joke? I had never heard this story before, so I don't know and need to talk to someone who may know about it. My Cantley grandfather has passed on, and was never one to really talk about family genealogy, so I don't know for sure. There's no one on that side of the family to ask, so I need to find more about the story. He said that he had found out about it in a book someone had had. Can someone out there help me?
