Hi, everyone. Just came across this website by a fluke. Hoping somebody can give me some help -- I'm impressed by the amount of information many of you have readily available.
My maternal great-grandmother (born in 1895) was half "Lakota." Her mother was white and her father, known off the reservation as "John Ray," was Native American. The family story has long been that he was a son(?) of Red Cloud and that his Native name was Many-Scars-on-the-Face (I think that's right -- I don't have my paperwork handy right now to confirm). He and my great-great-grandmother were married in Union County, Oregon (I keep meaning to hunt up a copy of the document but I live several hundred miles away and I don't want to do it by mail-order), probably around 1885, but, of course, it's anyone's guess how much factual information he may have reported, considering the times.
I haven't been able to find anything on the Internet for either name, especially as relating to Red Cloud. I'm hoping one of you might have some further thoughts. Thanks!
