    Seeking Indian father of Della Winona Daugherty

    Theodore Spickler Newbie

      I am looking for the name of an unknown Indian parent of Della Winona Daugherty who was born on Aug 13 1887 in Marshall County, West Virginia. Her mother was Eliza Daugherty (born on May 12, 1862). Eliza was the daughter of Robert Daugherty (born in 1806 in Ireland) and Mary Winters (married on April 29, 1841 in Marshall County). An Indian father of Della was never identified in family lore because it was considered a disaster.  Hence it was kept a secret. What Indians might have lived in Marshall County, WV back in 1887? Is there a birth certificate? How to find out when there might not be any records?
