Thank you so much for your reply!
I wish I knew more. I have a photo
of her son James (my greatgrandfather)
but that's all. Other than the fact
that she married a John Durden later on.
However, thanks to your email, I think
I may try something and see if that turns
up anything for me. I read a historic
document last week from that time period
which stated that if a Native American
woman married a white settler and gave
up her tribal ways,and did not live on
a reservation with her husband, etc.
then she could be listed on the census
as "White" or "B". I'm going home to
Florida in a few weeks and I'm going
to go to the archievs there and see
what I might can turn up.
I wish us both the best of luck in finding
our N/A Glisson ancestors!
Again, thank you for your help!
