HANKINS, ROACH, DANIEL, BESHIRES, BOSHERS
I have a very old picture, that was given to me by my
grandfather William Marse BESHIRES's sister. This picture is of my great grand mother
& father, Lucinda DANIEL & Christopher Columbus "Lum"
sometimes spelled BESHIERS, BOSHERS, or BRASHERS.In this picture, my grandmother
is wearing a Native Amer. dress and her hair is in 2 braids. She
a bead necklace on. I am at a lose as to which nation she belongs. Her mother
was Nancy "Nann" HANKINS and father James William DANIEL. He was
from Madison Co. I think that she got her Native Amer. heritage,
her mother, as tradition dictates. I also have a picture of
Lucinda's sister, Alice HENSON, in a dress that appears to be of Native Amer. in
anyone who can help me with this, by looking at the style of
these dresses? I
can send pictures via e-mail. Lum and Lucinda were married in
on 4-11-1891 d! .Chester Co. Lum's parents lived in Hardin Co., at
Shiloh Park, in the peach orchard cabin,1862.Please help with any history
