My grandmother, Lucy Catherine Ellis, always said we had indian blood. She ended up living in Missouri, Illinois and California. She married Leon Clifford McAmis, Sr. who was a doctor in St. Louis. I haven't done much work on this line, but I do know she had a brother named James. Any link? Joan McAmis
