Classification: Query
Surnames: Look, Tolman, Chase
My gggrandfather was Michael Daggett Look b. 1829. His father was Charles Look b. 1788 and his mother was Aurelia (Aurilla) Tolman.
I have been told that our family has Native American ancestry but no one knows from where.

Michael's grandfather was Samuel Look. He had a child named "Samuel" with a native woman that he never married who's last name was "Daggett". Samuel eventually married Margaret Chase. I find it interesting that Charles would give his son the name of his father's indian mistress surname as a middle name.

The other curiousity is that I read in the record's for Duke County, Maine that an indian woman with the last name "Tolman" gave her child, Prudence, to a white family to be raised. Tolman is the last name of Michael's mother.

Just wondering if anyone knows of any connection beyond coincidence....I haven't been able to determine if anyone is actually of native american heritage in my blood line.
