My grandmother was Mary A. Twiner b. March 11, 1871, Yazoo County, Mississippi and d. 1957 in Jackson, Mississippi. Her father was Joseph Anderson Twiner and her mother was Emily C. Callihan. This line of Twiners goes back to John C. Twiner and Judith Peck in the late 1700s. But, you probably know all of this from Pam Twiner Thompson. My grandmother married William Isom Johnson who I am named for. My grandmother used to tell me that her parents were Irish, but I know that her mother Emily Callihan was aproximately 75% Cherokee Indian according to family history passed along by verbal stories. Therefore, it is my belief that the Twiner side of my family is possibly in the direction of Ireland until I find out differently. I hope to hear from you.
By the way, I have 2 great-grandmothers on the Arender/Hartley/Richardson side of my family that were also Cherokee Indian.
Have a good day!
