Norma, Now this is very coincidental My great great great grandmother was a wilson and she also married a Johnson. It is not unusual for them to be from Missouri actually. Check the dates against the dates of the trail of tears. There were plenty indians that migrated west. I have done some extensive research and Johnson and Wilson are very common names in the indian world. In a message dated 6/1/2008 7:37:01 P.M.

Her name was Ellen M. Wilson. She married a Johnson. She most definitely had Native American features, but is it possible that Chippewa's would be all the way south in Missouri? Are there any Chippewa's with the name Montez or Montes? That was her middle name. Thank you for any insight you can offer.

    3. Hi1 Montez is a last name in Spanish. I have noticed some Spanish names mixed with French last names among the Chippewa. And yes, they seem to come often from Canada. There seems to be a bit of Spanish names in Canada. CampeZina Chris Eddy <[email protected]> wrote: Just an off the wall thought....maybe Montez was a french canadian name that was changed.
