Samantha, tho I don't believe your comment was in my direction, my mother mentioned to me of our Native American heritage in the family tho she could not recall the name!
She was very young and did not have good memory of it. However, the story told her was about her g or gg grandmother an indian squaw, working in the field, taking time to give birth and then getting back up to continue working in the fields. That story memory always stayed with her.
Makes me wonder. It would be nice to find a connection.
This would be my grandfather, Joseph E. Riley's Sept. 14, 1896-June 15, 1951.
