RE: cousins
Hi Joyc
I was just following up to if you have found anything yet? I've heard all the stories that gggma Jennie was Cherokee or part Cherokee, however I recently took the dna test from and it did not show any indian blood. I'm not sure how accurate the test is. My brother is going to try another test from another source so that we can judge.
Curious to hear your thoughts.

Hi Joyc
Any luck with your sister and information on the Choctaw or Cherokee lineage? I haven't been on here is some time and was just following up.

RE: cousins
That's funny that you say Choctaw. I heard that as a kid but then when I got older I found out that it was Cherokee. I heard this from a distant cousin and confirmed it with my brother. The cousin I believe was the daughter or grand daughter of Virgie or Jennie Box if I remember correctly. I have some other documentation I think that says that John W. "Doc" Box may have been the Cherokee. This would/should have made Ernest and Otis 1/2 or 1/4 Cherokee.

RE: Ernest Armstrong
Also I'm looking for any information you might have on Wymans father. I believe his name was Edward or Edwin. He was possibly born in norther New York or just across the border in Canada. The last bit of information I was given last week by a distant cousin that contacted me.

RE: Ernest Armstrong
Otis B. was my grandfather. That makes us 3rd cousins or something like that I guess? These are all the pictures I have on Jennie. Do you know any of the indian stories on the Boxes and if so do you have any documents confirming? I have only found one census that she listed everyone as american indian.
