thank you for the information. I will have to pass it along. I'm not necessarily trying to argue with you. I'm just stating that there are many possibilities and not everything is simply black and white. I KNOW that there is a possibility of Cherokees and Nez Perce being from Maryland because it's on the other side of my tree as well and we have documented proof of that. My grandmother (Richard Luzader's wife)is recognized by the US government as a Cherokee Native American from her mother's side and her mother's side come from Maryland. That's why I believe with ALL MY BEING that Sarah Cole Little Bear was native american. Maybe not full blooded but still..It has been passed down by my grandfather's side for many generations that there was/is native american. In fact, my grandfather is in the process right now of being accepted as he passes the physical characteristics testing. We are now proving bloodlines (which is WHY we started this search in the first place)My grandfather and Chief Little Bear's resemblances are uncanny to say the least. There are VERY similiar characteristics between the two. My grandfather is also red skinned as is my father. I, myself, even have native american characteristics (my mother's family came from Switzerland and Germany..no native there)I have the high cheekbones, short forehead and the back of my front teeth are dipped in. These are some of the characteristics they look for when do the physical exam. Again, I'm not trying to seem rude and I have no doubt what the books say. This is what WE know and what we are able to prove. :) Thanks so much for taking the time to reply to me. I would love the information that you have! Holly Luzader-Gray
