You're not alone! I also grew up being told my grandmother 4x removed was a full blooded Pequawket. My grandmother use to say to us kids that they named a pond in Conway, NH after us! I admit, a lot of them, including my grandmother, had Indian features. However, like you I have found no Indian blood in five generations. Strange isn't it. Why would a story like that get started in the first place when it was not fashionable to be part anything in their day, much less Indian. Today we would be proud to claim the heritage!! Good luck with your search.
