Layna Woodke I was trying to find our indian herritage for my mother, but come up short b/c I think I've gone back as far as I can. No more people left for old family pics. My Mothers father (Abraham A Rohn/ born Bingham lake Minn.) was said to have a mother who was at least 1/2 indian and 'her' mother was full blooded indian. My grampa was born on the reservation in Devils Lake N. Dakota and lived there till he was 8. His mother was 'lucy A Crossman' and her mother was 'Rosa lavinia Ward' (father lyman B. Ward/mother Mary E Richardson) she married into the Crossman family(James W. Crossman/ from NY) in 1881. The Crossmans had many children, They all lived in the wisconsin area of otsego/Beaver Dam/columbus etc. I've even found some grave markers.(cool) His father(grampas) was a Rohn. Grampa said 'he' was indian too but I didnt find that - more like Russian/German?,But It doesnt fit with waht grampa said. I wish I could find pics of the grammas! My mom looks indian, so somewhere in the line I know it must be true.I was having a blast trying to find info for the last 3-4 years. but I'm not trying as much anymore. When my grampa was young he denied his herritage, back then he said no-one wanted to be indian in a white mans world so all the records were "white" for "race". He also said his father would go to N. Dakota every year for months (probably to the pow-wows) and that his dads indian name was dog killer(he said he was not a very good man) some where in there i found a sure name of dodge too but My paper work is kind-of jumbled and I'm a little lost in there. I'm not sure on all i have found b/c my grampas sure name is under ROHN and RAHN in different places on the net. Want to know a funny thing - My mom married a RAHN (not related anyway to grampa,,luckily haha)!!!
