I've been reading these posts with interest. Does anyone have any
advice for an amateur with no knowledge in the area of Native-American
research, seeking to confirm or disprove the family claim that my
grandmother's uncle, stationed at Ft. Sully, Dakota Territory from 1866
to 1869, was the father of Native-American children? If the tale is
true, I'd love to locate any descendants. No financial interest,
There's not a lot to go on, but at least it is a narrow time frame.
He was back in NYC for the 1870 census, and married there in 1872. <br>
