Mrs. Luzader - Gray: Thank you for your early reply. Fisrtly, the Nez Perce were and always were a western tribe, never being represented in the east. Secondly, I do not rely "on what the books say," but what extensive archaeological, anthropological, and documentary research has established and preserved in numerous reports, tested by rigorous professional peer review by experts in the publications of such organizations as the Bureau of American Indian Ethnology, the Bureau of Indians Affairs, the American Historical Society, the Maryland Historical Society, every published study of the Cherokee, Creek, Iroquois tribes. Neither you nor I know so much that we should ignore what is the overwhelming body of evidence - even when it reaches unwelcome conclusions. Would you be interested in receiving copies of what Dr. Snclair and I assembled? I notice that you are connected to the Knotts family. I also have data on them since their migration from England to Delaware and hence to Knottsville, WV.I shall be happy to provide whatever you want. Good luck, Dr. John Luzader
