Lycoming Co. Native Americans

Lycoming Co. Native Americans

Family legend has it that my gg grandfather was married to a native american. This would have been in the mid 1800's with the marriage date around the early 1850's. What I want to know is what was the status of the native american population in Lycoming County at this time? Is this marriage a real possibility? Are there any records on the native americans of the Lycoming County area? Thanks for any help.

Jim.

It is possible that this marriage took place. My husband's ggggrandfather settled in this area in 1770's while it was still Indian territory--before the U.S. purchased the land. On of his descendants married an Indian, White Deer, in the 1800's.
