  1. I am a descendant of George and Effie Denbow. I just stumbled across your website and found it interesting. My cousin and I are trying to find out more info on our family. George and Effie Denbow are my great-great grandparents. William Frederick Denbow is my Great grandfather and his daughter Eleanor Lucille Denbow Davis is my maternal Grandmother. Do you have a formal family history in the form of a book? Or other resource? My grandmother said her father was Cherokee. But we are having trouble finding the evidence. Can you help? Feel free to call me at 918-809-9020 or 918-483-7010 or email is angiecypert@aol.com.

    1. Angie, thanks for your comment. I’m not sure what branch of the family your Denbows are from. I see your earlier post from 2014 that appears to have gone unanswered, unless I emailed you directly at that time. The only William F. Denbow I have is here: https://denbowtree.org/p27.htm#i1458
      I don’t think that is yours, or is it?

      Here are the George Denbows that I have:

      Are any of these your George?

      I also have one George Brown, whose mother was Mary Ann Denbow:

      Is this your family?

      If none of these are your family, I’ll need more information to try and figure out where you fit into the family tree.

      I terms of the claim of Indian blood. This is certainly possible. However, I would caution that in about 90 percent of cases where there’s a family story of this type, DNA evidence proves otherwise. My youngest daughter’s father-in-law was sure that his grandmother was half-Cherokee. When he submitted a DNA sample, he had no trace of Native American blood at all. Ironically, I’ve personally never claimed any Indian blood, but a recent DNA analysis showed that I had a little over 1 percent “Amerindian” blood. No idea where that came from.

      Thanks for posting.

      1. Yes, that is the side. William fredrick, son of George and Effie, is my great grandfather. My grandmother failed to tell us about the “Brown” name. There is a Mary Brown that is a Blackfoot Indian. May not be the same one. Just found out last week, however the source isnt too reliable from what i can see as of right now. You did respond through email. I remember reading something in the newsletter about the native being from someone other than a blood relative but dont remember which one it is. I really do love ur webpage. I wish the Menighan and Meyers families had one like this.
