I use and study alot of the Indian ways and try to understand what my ancestors went through and still are in some ways.I commend you.. Gypsy Kimber Gypsy Mangrum....(Gypsy) I am interested to coming to your museum, perhaps on Saturday, I need to know what address you are located at so, I can put into Mapquest to get directions. Im 30 years old and I have a family tree that my grandmother showed me and I am an ancestor of "Pocahontas". I dont have any clue as to how to find out because I never was able to be close to my biological family.Best regards, Mike Flinn Mike Flinn What is left to say... I am a 40 yr old female who rides horses and my harley davidson and I am so free spirited at times it scares me.. We'll be coming from Toms River from an adult community on Rt 70. I have sisters and brothers Ive never even seen before.Tunisia I am planning on attending the festival on Sunday with my 8 year old grandson.We are both very excited and when I visited your site and saw the Powhatans had settled in Pennsauken, we were elated.Wouldn't it be something if I discover my roots right here in my home.
My father told me the property I live on was once all wooded and had all types of trees and he used to fish in the creek behind my house.My family has Indian roots and I have tried to find out a little about them.My maiden name is Crocker and we also are related to the Collins' of Delair.remember that our heritage is sacred and unique- not that many people can honestly say that their veins carry our blood. I know very little at this point but would be very appreciative af any help that you can provide.What I do know is that my great-grandmother's name was Pocahontas Pullam or Puliam and her mother's name was Ware.I can say I feel really proud to be a part of such a great heritage.
