Hi Jim...following up a bit on your query here....

I don't see any indication at all that Robert Spain's wife (Emaline) was Indian. All census I saw listed her as white, and they were pretty particular about things such as race. If you looked dark/Indian, you got labeled as such, not "white".

If your Great-grandpa Robert Spain was hanged, there would likely be newspaper article about it, probably in Pratt County KS. I found info that he died 8 May 1906 5 miles NE of Sawyer, Pratt Co KS.

Emma's parents were Elbert & Malissa Bert

Malissa Caroline Bert is buried Oak Hill Cemetery Cassville, Mo, born 12 Jul 1836 and died 11 Aug 1913. Her death certificate indicates she was white.

Elbert Bert is also buried Oak Hill Cemetery, born 18 Jan 1836 and died 25 Jan 1898.

Again, I can't see anything that would indicate American Indian bloodlines - not impossible, I'm just not seeing anything at the moment.

On first pass with your mother's side, I didn't see anything there either that would indicate Indian heritage. Will have another look real quick and get back to you.
