This actially cleared up alot for me. Now I know where you fit in the family tree.
Two brothers Hyacinth your line and Isreal mine. They both came across in the 1850's to the area of Clayton NY.
You are correct about the stories, they were passed down through my side also. Dont really think there were Induan Princesses but one of our ancestors was Iroqouis.Not really been able to confirm who though.
One of the stories of the family involved grave robbery of cadavers for research in Canada.People do what they have to to survive. It's great to believe we are all desendants of royalty but truth is thr majority of us come from everyday people struggling to survive.
