I went back and read that, and I can't believe you read the whole thing! After I re-read that opus I could see why my family thinks I'm obsessive...and it hasn't gotten any better.
There aren't any Grahams in my family that I have noticed yet, but I have gotten into reading a lot of old, original documents and will keep that name on the list of names I watch for (which is mostly names of people with which the family intermarried). Anything to do with the Indian trade in colonial S.C. is interesting.
And I made a breakthrough on my Delilah Norton! Got hold of the Journal of Major John Norton, and everything checks out with his family. Of course, I still don't know if they're mine, but there was a daughter the right age.
I was raised thinking the Indians were all removed to Oklahoma and all the rest of us are white. Now I view that as The Big Lie.
Yet I can understand why. Went to a family reunion this summer, and one of my father's cousins married a Navajo. Found out their mixed blood son was beaten to death by Indian bashers. No wonder these families hid their heritage...
This whole story is a tragedy.
