My great-grandmother Hughes was a "full-blooded" Apache
. . . why no one ever thought this entertaining enough to mention to me, I find "interesting" indeed
"oh yeah, our grand-mother was half-Indian"
I said "what !!!!" and when my head stopped spinning I got the full scoop, as my cousin and his wife are genealogy hounds and have met many of the Hughes cousins
so the Apache blood line I have heard about all my life from the Hughes side of the family, my paternal grand-mother
was actually MUCH closer than I thought
so, it appears as if I am actually 1/8 Apache and 1/16 Cherokee . . . plus, supposedly another strain somewhere of Cherokee, too
wow -- this rocks
again . . . WHY did I not know this ?????
I guess my cousins thought I did . . . my father always talked about Indians on his mother's side of the family (and his grand-mother died before he was born
what fabulous news :)
