    Seeking ancestors of Silas G. Harlan

    Patricia Duecy Newbie

      I have heard that our family descended from a Native American family.  The last name is HARLAN; the first names: Silas Granville (1821-1877); John (1868-1926); Jehu (1746-1806); James (1692-?); George (1650-1714).  Silas Granville lived in West VA, Erie, KS; and Texas.  After his death, the family moved to Marshall, Missouri.  I overheard a relative mention that she had applied for reparations (for broken treaty) in the 1960s, and could prove tribal association to the required degree.  I would love to know more.
