    'Jonathan Crawford, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford’s husband and apparently Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandfather, served in the East Tennessee Mounted Infantry Volunteer Militia commanded by Brigadier General R. G. Dunlap from late 1835 to late 1836. While under Dunlap’s command he was a member of Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion, and Captain Richard E. Waterhouse’s Company.

    These were the troops responsible for removing Cherokee families from homes they had lived in for generations in the three states that the Cherokee Nations had considered their homelands for centuries: Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. '

    Dad's family-OK Cherokee
    Mom's family-Virginia settlers who moved into recently vacated Cherokee land.
    No wonder I hate myself sometimes.

    Countdown to attacking the source...


    I saw this story. I found it interesting. I chose not to post it because I knew the focus would end up on the source rather than the story. In fact, I was considering starting a thread about good stories we don't post because of the source.

    I know I skip many a post for that reason alone...

    So that's the new plan of attack? Holding people responsible for their ancestor's actions?

    How many wives did Mitt's great-grandfather have again? And how old were they?
