Re: Grayson Family
In Response To: Re: Grayson Family ()

Hensci,
Just a interesting note from the pages of history:
Hitchcock in 1842 met Creek Interpreter William Grierson and his nephew, Phillip Grierson, and had a long conversation with David Grierson who told him that he had "colored blood" in him.
from; "Grant Foreman, A Traveler in the Indian Territory; the Journel of Ethan Allen Hitchcock, pp.143,151."
William and David were sons of Robert and Sinugee Grierson. (Robert was a full blood Scott from Scotland). David was talking about his mother Sinugee. Notice the year 1842, ten years after the removal from the old Creek country. The first generation of Oklahoma Creeks were still very young and the White Antibellum society had not yet taken hold of the nation. Eli

ps. for those of you who are new to the site, The Grierson and Grayson name are one in the same.
