Re: Sam Grey Wolf Hanna

Found this about Zula Brinkerhoff, who is a Mormon:

"Two women were a delightful part of the program. Dorris Van Tassel told the story of her contact with space people a fantastic story it was too. Until you have heard her, you've missed some-thing! Zula Brinkerhoff, adopted by three Indian tribes came to tell the Hopi prophecy of the return of the saucers to Earth."

This was at DanFry.com

Apparently, Brinkerhoff is still going strong, and has a website.

Think I'm gonna bow out of this thread, now.  Hopefully, somebody will provide evidence to support Sam Hannah's story, someday.

Re: Sam Grey Wolf Hanna

This was certainly more educational than I expected, and further deteriorates any links between my wife and myself and "legitimate" Lenape. Even though our adoption was by someone who was adopted by someone who was adopted by Sam, and was given much too hastily, I was at least confident that there was some tie to the Lenape there. Now I don't know what to think. But the whole thing has been becoming increasingly tenuous for a very long time...and so it goes.

Re: Sam Grey Wolf Hanna

Interesting thread.
If I was to search through about 40 years of accumulated books and papers I just might find an application to become an 'honorary' member of the ULB given to me by a distant Cattell cousin, Dickie Parker ( long since gone). I dunno, just didn't feel right at the time.


Go ahead and turn the damn power and water off, I'm ready!

This is quite true.  I can give example after example, as has N-P, on this very forum.  However, when all is said and done, the real Indians are still real Indians (no matter how flaky) and the phonies are still Wannabes (no matter how culturally correct).

Re: Sam Grey Wolf Hanna

Sorry to hear that.  I believe you've got a lot to offer.  I guess we're at an impasse regarding the authenticity of Sam Hannah.  Can't help that, but do we all have to agree on everything?  neutral

Let me correct this.  Although there is still a website for her, Brinkerhoff died in 2002.

Just trying to get to the truth.  No offence taken.  I guess we'll have to wait until the 1940 census is made public, in 2012, in order to see where he was living when he was 15, and if there is any additional information.  That he was born in Jefferson County, Kentucky, is certain, though.  An index entry of his birth record is also available online.

1940 Federal Census, Hamilton City, Butler County, Ohio, Enumeration District 9-21, household No. 149:

Albert H. Yordy / Head / Male / White / 36 years old / birthplace:  Ohio
Ethel M. Yordy / Wife / Female / White / 36 years old / birthplace:  Kentucky
Dixie L. Yordy / Daughter / Female / White / 8 months old / birthplace:  Ohio
Sammie Hannah / Stepson / Male / White / 15 years old / birthplace:  Kentucky
Shannon L. Hannah / Stepdaughter / Female / White / 7 years old / birthplace:  Ohio

Oh yeah, it doesn't look good when you base your own "indianness" on him.
