What about Native American Ancestry?

Parent Category: FAQs

The only family line with a legend of Native American ancestry was the Owens Family. While I haven't been able to prove any connection, the photo below of Thursey (McCoy) Helton wearing and Indian blanket is as close as we have. Little is know about her mother Mecy Herrin but it's possible she could be of Native American origin. Mecy was born in 1805 and married before any rolls of Indians were made so she does not appear in any documents that list Indian blood.
