John Martin Forehand m. Ann Rebecca Miles

John Martin Forehand m. Ann Rebecca Miles

Posted: 1336456970000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Forehand and Miles
Family cousins say that they were 1/4 Native American Indian. This would put John Martin Forehand and/or Ann Rebecca Miles as being Native American, or possibly Ann's parents.
John was born in 1836, Ann born in 1834.

Would appreciate if anyone knows any information on this.
