Granny Harper would have been about a quarter Native American through her father Walter Elbert Carter. This is nearly certain. Additionally, according to personal memories of Pappaw Harper (Davis Virgil, son of Ruby Elaine), Benjamin Rowan Wood may have also been Native American which would mean that Granny Harper had two Native American grandparents. This is not certain, however, Granny Harper's features are not inconsistent with being half Native American.
