"I'm looking everywhere for more information to add details to my family tree. I haven't been able to find information on Chief Rotten Body Stinking Ribs of the Shikshichela Sans-Arc other than he was the father of Tamakoce Her Good Road. If you can help me that would be great, or point me in the right direction. Thank you"

This is a link with an interesting historical article including the quote, "With a small baby to take care of, Thomas Sarpy soon remarried, this time to Her Good Ground a daughter of Rotten Body Stinking Ribs (English translation that was probably incorrect), a chief of the Sans Arc Band of Teton Sioux. Her Good Ground gave birth to Mary Sarpy (White Woman) in 1831." www.nathpo.org/Many_Nations/mn_news16.html

I'm a descendant of Good Ground Woman and Joseph Desmet Lewis have been work on our family tree using genetic genealogy and have been coming up with some interesting connection. I use autosomal and Y , Mt DNA to do my research along with others. However my knowledge of the family groups and their history is not that great. I am learning and I believe in time I may with some help be able to answer some of these questions.
