I am strongly considering having a DNA test done of myself as I don’t have the Ameigh DNA testing results, if any.

Grandma Cook

Posted on by

Grandma Elsie Cook died at 84 years of age.  She was a strong believing Christian.

She worked as a housekeeper when young, at the County Building [Cook] in middle age, and taught Sunday School and Youth groups in her older years.  She never learned to drive a car.

Her main instruction was to alway look up in the Bible every verse and study for yourself no matter how good the Preacher or Teacher may be.  Also, never let anything be to important to you as that important thing is what Satan will use against you.

She was a great Grandmother even though no one is perfect.

American Indian Blend in Heritage.

Posted on by

Tuscarora or Seneca is also blended with our Smith family.  My Uncle believes completely that our heritage includes the Seneca while I seem to remember from my Grandmother as source that it was Tuscarora.  My GreatGrandFather was a guide at a fort on the Hudson, but after that settled around the Breesport area and created several farms [cleared and built].

Also, seem to remember from GrandMother, that GreatGrandMother was English. Uncle  Lewis believes she was Seneca.

TRUTH IS THAT WE HAVE NO AMERICAN  INDIAN BLOOD IN OUR BLOODLINE…..

Apparently  Grandma’s Aunt,  who raised her to age 13 years, lied to her about her bloodline from her Father.  The Aunt was most likely being mean to her as she often was.  Tanya Cook, had my Mom and my Uncle Lewis as well as others in the family tested with DNA tests and there was found no Indian blood in our family anywhere.

A  copy of  Mom’s test is in another message post.
