Hi again Martin,
I found my old notes on Michael. Turns out, it is something you wrote in 1993 and I see that you lived in Luling at the time. These notes were given to me by my aunt, Helen Nelson. In any case, I'm glad to "meet" you.
I learned recently that my grandmother told her children that we are part native American (but she never mentioned which tribe). I suspect it may be from Michael's line given the mystery around his origins. Do you know of any such connection?
