I would be willing to guess no indian, however look at the names of some of the chilren - "Guilford Bird" and "Kindness Breedlove". I have no idea. One of Obediah's brothers (John) has a son named "Flower" (think he was named for a 1st cousin's husband "Flower Mullins - Rev War Vet"), another brother (Tyce Mathias) had grandson named "Byrd". I have speculated for years of an "indian connection" in our branch and then I think I read something on one of the forums about I think it was "Kindness Breedlove" (could be wrong on the name) & "indian connection". Photo's of my ancestors look to me like indian blood somewhere. Go back on this forum and read older posts by Steve Light -- he researched Light's back to Lyte in England -- he did a lot of indepth research and it's very interesting to read. Wish I could find him. I tried a current "Steve Light" and it's not the same one.
