    I just discovered a Jeffries that married into my Teel family line that is said to be blackfoot. She is the wife of David Teel who is an older brother of my Jereta Teel Yeazel. Does anyone recognize this lady in their research?

    My search results here for Cleland gave me 20 results, the first one of these resulting from my own post… I have yet to read through them all.

    A potential parent for Mary. Martin Cleland, because of location mostly. I find him in Mercer co OH 1830. Not far across the state line from where Mary ends up, and also in Whitley co IN 1840. The same co she marries her huband in and borders the county they live in. He may be the same Martin I see in 1820 Chautauqua NY. Can’t wait to get going on these again but limmited on what I can do at the momment.

    One document states there is no record to prove origin for Edward Blevins, another says he is from Wales or Scotland.

    Evidently he did well for himself in RI according to records. Fought in “Queen Ann” War according to one source. There were NA allies and enemies there, it could be some took the name without the bloodline connection, or the name originated with other Blevins/Blivens intermarriages. If the tree information is true, there would be a possibility of having a bloodline through a female line. Without documentation, it all a matter of a guess as to what the truth is, and even then documents conflict so its as if you still guess as to the truth. Conflicting records drive me crazy. Never know what to believe.

    Going to take the rest of my life to figure it all out it seems…and my name list just keeps growing.

    Another crazy thing here, the daughter of Edward Blevins marries into Saunders (another name frequented here) who appear to originate as English colonists to RI. First generations born in US around years 1670s. Stephen Saunders b.1675 and Edward Saunders b.1672, both of RI and probably related are both in my lines according to trees. Both father a couple who marries in RI.

    I have all these names and cant make any connections to save my life. I cant wait to get my DNA done. Hopefully, its more reliable than records and unverified trees. Though for me its hard to trust even that.

    Its hitting me what Dreaminghawk said about going with what you feel after you’ve beat the paper trails to death. Of course, in my case its been on line records and trees.

    Wasn’t it you who several years ago posted a song by your Blackfoot ancestor that I tried to find out the words from a Sioux language speaker?

    I’m sorry, I don’t believe so. I don’t always trust my memory but that’s not sounding familiar to me. It seems I would remember that. Might have been another member?

    Yes they are Marc, thank you! The ones in Michigan are actually closer to me.

    Many years ago, through friends I was honored to visit many local Potawatomi ( Nishnahbey?) gatherings such as Pow Wows, monthly meetings, naming ceremony’s, a sweat, and so forth. It was a great learning experience of their culture. Good people who always welcomed, I will never forget their kindness.

    I guess I was wondering if the Saponi descendants ever get together to keep touch and fellowship. Not likely those who were scattered to the four winds I suppose. I was thinking I had a vague memory of Bill talking about some kind of gathering in Southern Indiana once upon a time if Im not mistaken…?

    You know, from what Ive seen on various threads from people who ended up in my state…It seems for many, it was random and scattered without so much the pattern that other groups had getting to this point down the generations. I think there was probably a lot of families that got disconnected in the flight. And you never know who married off into another group that headed out at different times. Its fascinating to me to see how so many peoples ancestries and migrations tell the stories of our history that you don’t get in school. I love it. Anyway…rabbit trailing again.
