My mother Pearl Cruce was born in Perry, Flordia, she passed away a long time ago or I would ask her directly. So Mahala Gaskins and Hannah Stone were rumored to be Indian...do you know how we could find this out? It is interesting that so often the Indians had English sounding names. I have read quite a lot about the intermingling of the Indians and white settlers back then. Lee Cruce, a governor of Oklahoma married into a famous Chickasaw Indian family, the Leflore's (LeFleurs) (Chickie LeFlore to be exact.) Her ancestors were relocated to OK from the southeast in the 1800's. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
