I am a descendant of Lena Mae Gertrude Lovett of Defuniak Springs, Florida. (last known living area)
My father was her only(?) son (illegitimate) and we believe he was illegally adopted. His name is Bruce Edward Dean and was adopted by Walter Thomas Dean and Vera Mae Crawford-Dean under very mysterious circumstances of which I was never able to get any of them to speak about!
. It has always been rumored that we had American Indian blood but I have been unable to document it. Both my Father and his Mother have passed to the other side and all her known relatives so no maternal DNA to represent the suspected line of Indian blood. (?) I am looking for clues to my heritage. The paternal line is through Troy Barnes ...He was listed on the birth certificate of my Father but I have heard the cert being altered and "unknown" is in the blank. Supposedly, my youngest sister has copies of both representations. We believe it was altered to prevent us from claiming linkage to the Barnes estate (Barnes Supermarkets)We are in the beginning of establishing our ancestral heritage. Supposedly, we have Creek on my Father's maternal line but my Mother's lines are rumored to have Cherokee and Choctaw as well.
