She didn't work so she and I would pack a lunch and get to the Laguna archives at 8AM, took a 15 min lunch and left at 4:30 when they closed. It was a blast pulling up census's. I had a little chat with my mom after pulling up the 1920 census of my great grandparents as it was taken in Jan, my grandmother was born in May and the months of marriage didn't quite add up right.
ROFL!!! after all of these years, she tucked her tail between her legs & asked me to tell her the results when I get to the gene people.

Nancy, I love a good hunt through the censuses & other records. I used to go to the regional archives (NARA) in Philly & go from census reel to census reel. I have several things that I want to hunt down in NC, SC, & GA colonial records.

There was a lot of that marriage-date-to-birth-date-not-quite-adding-up when you start digging.

I really need to finish my research regarding my American Indian heritage. I was always told I was Commanche and when I was 12 I received a letter in school regarding my indian heritage and my mother didn't think I had enough to claim and now that I am doing research I believe I did. Of course I contacted the school and they had done away with the program and didn't have any records. I am sure if I dig around some more I'll find something.

That's usually difficult to find, unless you get lucky. I have Leni Lenape (Delaware) & I'm pretty certain of Mohawk. Now there is a good possibilty of one or more other tribes, just not certain. People lied about it for years.

My indian lineage comes from Texas, the 3 main tribes were the Commanche, Apache and Kiowa. I was told that I was related to the great Commanche Chief Quanah Parker but I did get his geneaology chart from Fort Parker and cannot make a connection. Apparently 1/2 of Texas claims this. Quanah's mother was white, she was kidnapped by the Commanche's when she was 9.

I know I do have indian in me and you can definatly see it in my face. In fact, just the other day someone asked if I had American Indian in me, the high check bones give it away everytime.

Oh, I know. There are several characteristics that are dead giveaways.

Have you found Civil War enlistment papers for that family? Those physical descriptions are very telling.

No, I haven't. That sounds pretty interesting. We may have to get together for a little geneaology chat.

Here is the story of Quanah and Cynthia Ann.

Cynthia Ann Parker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Although this is the Sutton family, in the 2nd paragraph it tells the story of The Riggs family. The 9 year old Rhoda who was taken by indians was my gg grandmother and my ggg grandparents murdered by indians. I have the family story written by her oldest brother.

Nancy, there is a huge Sutton family that spread from New England to North Carolina, then they started moving west. One branch married into my Ivens family in South Jersey, that's how I know about them. Your Suttons probably tie into the same batch.

We definitely have to talk some genealogy. Ani does it too.

Have you been using Heritage Quest? I just went & got a library card today so that I can use it, since I'm not exactly going to be running any races for the next month or so. I used to use it with my library card in NJ.

No, I haven't used Heritage Quest, guess I'll have to break down and get a library card.

It was late last night and I didn't clarify very well. I am related to The Riggs family not the Suttons in this story. I'll have to search my index to see if I have any Suttons. It's been a while since I've done anything. I would love a genealogy chat.

I knew of a guy who was doing Riggs, but he died several years ago. Do you have yours back to VA?

Get the library card. You can access Heritage Quest from home, with the card.
