Does ANYONE know ANYTHING about the Fox/Grass connection in the 1860's to 1880's. My Grgrandfather James William Grass
Dec 11, 1865...I find no marriage of them anywhere...I find no death or birth certificate either. Mary Fox is Full Blood Cherokee and cannot find her anywhere in records...HELP!! I DO HAVE a copy of William's death certificate that lists the names of James and Mary as his parents...
Grgrandmother...Mary (May, Marie, or Polly Ann)

Grgrandmother was Cherokee...thought to be from the East but there is and idea that we could be blended also...
--my attempt has been to establish who was this --mary fox
--as if we sort out all the facts & documents
--the only question is
--when considering the overwhelming evidence and i mean overwhelming--everything--all birth-marriage-death-marriage applications etc of the children of james w grass & mary fox--all state mary fox was born in indiana and she was white
--great grand daughter continues to insist she does not then she does have the death certificate of her grandfather wm t grass
--please turn over the dc and state where william says his mother was born and what color he says she is
--why is your own grandfather's marriage license ignored where he states imphatically that his mother was born greene co indiana and is white?
--please state why these documents are being ignored and poster says mary fox was born wv and is full blood cherokee, melungeon, black, negro, or delaware
--repeat--why do you think--your great grandmother was not from indiana
--where is the proof she is full blood cherokee and born w v
--facts please--documents--
thank you for your time and as always welcome comments and
suggestions ed wilson
