My grandmother often referred to our family as being of Blackfoot Indian descent. I thought that she was confused with possibly the Cherokee Indians or just using it as a claim because most of them looked as if they were white (although they claimed to be "African American" throughout the years). I have recently started researching our family history with a couple of other relatives and our history coinicides with the stories written hear on this site. This is the case for not just my grandmothers family (originating from the late 1700's in Mecklenburg & Guilford Counties of VA) but also my grandfathers side of the family (originating from the early 1800's in VA & Halifax, Edgecombe and Martin counties of NC. They all migrated to parts of Ohio & Indiana. I have not been able to go find a lot of information but I do have copies of my ancestors applications (which was rejected - of course) for Indian citizenship in the early 1900's. They applied under the classification of Cherokee
