Howdy, I am trying to figure out if my great grandfather was Native American. Growing up, my great grandfather told my father stories about growing up on the reservation. I am just trying to find out if there was any truth to his stories.
His name was John Washington Shumate (Born Feb. 9, 1894, Died Mar. 20, 1980) he married Minne Lee Dial (Born Jan. 28, 1900, Died Sept. 27, 1975). There is some speculation that Minnie was also Native American.
