Hi, In my family, we have a Louisa Chavis born around 1815 in Alabama. She lived in Drew County Arkansas until she died in Feb. 1985. My family lore has it that she was also Native American, I have done a mtdna test, (which Louisa is the oldest known ancester on my mother's line)and my results are her mtdna she passed on to me. We know nothing of her prior to her coming to Arkansas. If you would like to discuss Louisa and her dna results, that might explain her "exotic looks" email me back.
