Native Americans of Mixed Blood

I know someone will be upset with some of the words here but it can’t be helped and as this information comes from Historical documents I will not change the wording to please a few, besides by changing the wording there may be a miss understanding of what they were trying to say and lets face it if you are looking for family you will have to look under these titles or you’ll get no where. There is no family info here but I thought it was important for those of you looking for family to know what was happening to them at this time in History.

Dictionary Definitions.
1. Half Breed-the offspring of parents of different racial origin, esp. the offspring of an American Indian and a white person of European heritage.

2. Half Blood-a person who has only one parent in common with another person, as a half sister or half brother = (3.)-Half Breed.

I put the definitions down to help you as this information will be under these two titles even though they mean the same thing.
