Have we found some of our Native American Feather(s)?
We feel we have!
Thanks to Jenny Rice for her recent email information about the Bilyeus and the Wyckoffs Native American Heritage!
Jenny sent us to Google a book written by Don Green -
Shawnee Heritage - Book 1
Jenny writes:
"I have been meaning to tell you I visited the Shawnee Tribal office with the information about Peter Bilyeu and Sam Wyckoff's wife being full-blood Shawnee from Don Green's book Shawnee Heritage but I was told by their genealogy coordinator that because we could not prove each generation had registered as Shawnee, then we could not register on the roll.  If you haven't read Don Green's book Google it and on page 24 it tells about Peter Bilyeu's Mariya Pekowi (Pekowi was her tribe) and Samuel Wyckoff's wife Charity Gertrude (Pekowi) full-blood.  They were both about 7th generation for you and me."
I did go Google this book and this is what I found:
