Response to Sad Isn't It...
On my mom's side, my great grandmother was 1/2 Ottawa and the other half French. We are from as far north in Ohio as you can get inthe central zone(Sandusky). Makes sense. Mid to Late 1700's in to the early 1800's, there were 7 or 8 forts around the Great Lakes. French and British settled and occupied the areas off and on, alternating. French Indian War was over by 1760 or early 1760's. Anyhow, that's how I eventually came along.
Funny, you would never know it by looking at me. Blonde hair, blue eyes, very German looking. My grandmother is half German. In fact, Blonde hair and blue eyes is strong gene in our family now. Four of us six kids my mom has, ALL of our children (my siblings) have the features. That's 13 total!. That is remarkable, really. Oddly, my older sister has very native American features with her Blonde hair and blue eyes. Her cheek bones are high, you can just see it all around with the other features too.
If Rushmore is given back, wonder if the Natives will have the faces blasted off. Would only be fair.
