I have met a lot of controversy and some people online getting mad when I ask this question, but I have a great grandmother in Georgia who is "supposedly" part Native American. She definately looks like it. She looks like an average Native person but darker. Anyway, in the 1920 census (and maybe others) she and both of her parents are listed as negro. Could you help em out here? Thanks! Again, this is not a set fact that she has any Indian in her, but I believe it is pretty possible! She does not look very black at all! Thank you!
