I was just surfing the web and came across your e-mail. You got my attention with the mention of the family crest. I am a descendant of the Spanish Conquistador Hernando DeSoto. I had always known that but not much else and then our tribe - Choctaw Tribe did some research and published a story about our family history in their tribal newspaper published by the Choctaw Tribe of Oklahoma - the paper is called Bishnik. You can find it on the internet. The story came out a couple of years ago, you can probably get a back issue. Supposedly, DeSoto intermarried with a member of the tribe. The side of the family that is of Spanish descendant are Winship. Sorry, but I can't help you out anymore.
