I am trying to find information about my maternal great-grandmother. We were always told that she was a full-blooded Cherokee Indian. However, in doing a genealogy search, this is the information I found: She was born on March 29, 1874, in Salamonia, Indiana and her parents were Augustus and Priscilla Burkey Kantner, originally of Pennsylvania, who I don't believe were Native American, but of German heritage. Her son, my grandfather, looked very much like a Native American as do my uncle and many of my family members. She passed away when I was two years old so I have no memory of her. I do have a photograph of her and my great-grandfather. Her hair is pulled up and she is dressed in English clothes.
