I want to thank all the wonderful people I have met on WikiTree. There are many new cousins who I never new I had. Now we are in regular contact.
Working on the US Presidents, Vice Presidents, US Civil War, and Founding Fathers Projects. There are so many interesting characters in our country's history. Good chance to learn more about our history.
As for my direct family line: trying to find more info on my Great Grandfather Thomas Franklin Norman and my maternal Great Grandmother Minniehaha Martin Haggan. She is quite a mystery because her name sounds Native American/Canadian Indian and my grandmother has "Is an Indian" written across her birth certificate. However, my grandmother had no Indian features. Wonder if Minnie was captured by Indians and then given an Indian name. I believe she was later adopted by the Martins (when they were in their 60's).
Anybody have ideas on how to find out more about her?

I just sent a note to Eddie re: the last name of the McMillans/McMellions/etc ... I asked him to check and see if he has a source we could add to her profile so that we can settle on the spelling.
From what I just read on her father's profile, it looks like his Will used McMillion or MackMelion (not sure about the capilization on that last one) ... I'm thinking given the current state of the names, settling on McMillion with MackMelion and other variations in the Other Name Fields might be the best way to go so that we're not changing his last name again -- he's already had a number of merges and name changes executed on his profile. I think it would be best if we could avoid more, especially since there doesn't seem to be a definitive source at this time.
