    History 2018  [7
    I received this in an email: Family legend goes: Blue Wolf + Roxy Blue Feather (dau. of chief) were Sioux or Ojibwe Indians.They had dau. Roxy Dianiana born on Reservation in South Dakota abt 1798. Roxy Dianiana married Joel Johnson of Orange,MA. Orange records list her as Roxy Ward, dau. of Daniel + Sarah Jones Ward. Roxy + Joel had 4 children before she died in 1824. Their dau. Ruth married Horace Huntoon and lived in Orange. Ruth + Horace's son William Phyletus Green Huntoon married Mary Anah Fay and had 3 children. Their dau. Mabel Lizzie Huntoon was born on the Ojibwe Reservation at Red Lake, MN in 1878.

    While fascinating, the Orange vital records list her birth as Orange, Massachusetts, and the 1820 Census lists her as white.
