    Looking for records about S Perthenia Robinson

      Hello, Looking for any information on a specific line or generally on researching Native American heritage when not on one of the reservation rolls.  S. Perthenia Robinson, lived in Illinois born sometime in the 1840s, had a son named Harvey Robinson.  I have photos of her and her family, and her gravestone, currently in Coulterville Cemetery in Randolph county.  Mythology was that she was of Native American blood and that she was married to a Native American who did not wear white man clothes until he was in his forties.  There is mythology around her children, being a scout for Pershing and so forth but no concrete proof.
