Illegal aliens have always been a problem in the United States. Ask any Native American.

Re: Surnames in my Background Listed as Indian

It would be neat to find a connection between the original settler and your family. I mean all Haines/Haynes go back to the same Welshman and all Powells go back to Caratacus (Caradoc). the O' Neils all go back to Niall of the Nine Hostages so it's possible. big_smile

Re: Surnames in my Background Listed as Indian

Adams is in my tree, but what I've found and I think it is very important, sir names were given to individuals in a very random way when looked at as a whole. Some people got their names because great granddad fought in the rev war and whole  regiments would receive their commanders sir name. My guess is it started unofficially out of necessity to pay them and for records, and the men kept the names to receive entitlements after.
Then of course there was the missionary naming, and the adoptions of educated help out of the industrial school as is the case for one of my grandfathers of whom I don't know his history prior to the school.


What color corn do you grow?
