The Globe, in their attempt to re-enforce Lizzy's story of her heritage, uncovered information that a real Cherokee genealogist has used to put the issue to rest forever... not the way Liz would like though...from legalinsurrection.com:The Cherokee line supposedly was through her maternal grandparents, the Crawfords.But just to put another piece of evidence on the table, real Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes has come up a newspaper clipping from the Muskogee Times Democrat on August 17, 1906. http://www.pollysgranddaughter.comThe newspaper clipping relates to a story about how Warren’s great grandfather, John H. Crawford, shot a real Indian and was identified in the newspaper as white, via Twila Barnes:Elizabeth Warren is the granddaughter of Hannie Crawford, who is the daughter of John H. Crawford. Warren says the Crawfords were Cherokee.According to the Boston Globe,“Rosco Crawford, Hannie Crawford’s brother, told (his granddaughter) that as a young boy living in the Creek Nation of Indian Territory, the Indians were “pretty mean.” Once, when a Creek was hitting Crawford’s younger brother, their father shot and wounded the Indian, according to her biography, on file at California State University at Fullerton.”Twila Barnes finds the article, from August 1906, which tells the story and specifically refers to her ancestor as a *white* man who had shot an indian. But don't worry. Libs are lenient with racial definitions these days. If your great grandfather shot and killed a native american, it's your prerogative to call yourself a native american.
