Hi

I was working on the Knott lineage - specifically to prove/disprove the Indian Heritage stories passed down. Specifically, I am told that the Great grandmother or perhaps Great great grandmother was pure Indian and was born on a reservation. Eliza Stanley (Elizabeth Louisa Stanley Crabtree) is as far as I can get. I am told that her daughter was indian (Isabella Riggsbee) - but not 100% sure story is true?
If anyone has any insight - would be GREATLY appreciated. I know this is long shot but thought I would try! :) Samantha
