Andrew J. Blackbird's 1887 "History of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan; A Grammar of Their Language, and Personal and Family History of the Author" is available in its entirety for reading or downloading at Google Books, http://books.google.com/books?dq=Andrew+J+Blackbird&pg=P...
Pulling out Andrew's fathers & his uncles, and combining it with other public info, I got this family tree, with "Unknown" being Andrew's paternal grandfather.

There are many living descendants of the Waukazoo and Wing lines. I don't know where Assignac fits in. I do know a large group emigrated to Canada from Michigan between 1810 & 1850.
