Father born in Buffalo, NY, mother born in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. She was a descendant of Chief Pontiac. How exactly? I don't know. Grandmother doesn't discuss it. She has miniature statues of him and Indian artifacts in her home. I remember her saying she is a descendant when I was young, but I never knew how much truth there was to it. Regardless if I'm a descendant or not, its a true story, so imma roll with it.
