Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears
Breitbart ^ | 5/8/12 | Michael Leahy

Posted on 05/08/2012 12:36:19 PM PDT by raccoonradio

For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American. When recently asked to provide evidence of her ancestry, she pointed to an unsubstantiated claim on an 1894 Oklahoma Territory marriage license application by her great-great grand uncle William J. Crawford that his mother, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandmother, was a Cherokee.

After researching her story, it is obvious that her "family lore" is just fiction.

As I pointed out in my article here on Sunday, no evidence supports this claim. O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford had no Cherokee heritage, was listed as "white" in the Census of 1860, and was most likely half Swedish and half English, Scottish, or German, or some combination thereof. (Note, the actual 1894 marriage license makes no claim of Cherokee ancestry.)

But the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee—the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.

This new information about Ms. Warren’s true heritage came as a direct result of a lead provided to me by William Jacobson over at Legal Insurrection, who in turn had received the information from one of his readers. Jacobson, who has questioned Warren's explanation for her law faculty listing, calls this discovery "the ultimate and cruelest irony" of the Warren Cherokee saga.

Wow. It’s like Obama’s Kenyan ancestors actually turning out to be slave traders. You get started on this racial identity business, there’s no telling where it will lead.

Strikes me that Warren would make a perfect guest on that Lisa Kudrow celebrity genealogy show, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

I remember Andrew commenting once about how he knew how the news cycle works and he was going to catch them in their game by only printing an initial charge and then let them respond and then “new information” and let them respond and the big kahuna is released — when they’ve had the information all along. This is a classic example. I wonder if more is in the hopper after her response to this. Breitbart Lives.

What Andrew Jackson did to the cherokees was unforgivable, you had a group of natives who were really starting to embrace western culture and beginning to assimilate but he threw them to the wolves.

Maybe Chief Warren can salvage this by claiming that, a result of his onerous duty, her great-great-great grandfather suffered from a rare hereditary form of PTSD and she 1/32nd nuts.

Maybe.

Hot damn. Ain't that the truth?

Now, Warren needs to apologize to the Cherokee for what her ancestor did. How long should we wait?

My great, great uncle Piffy Archuleta out of Abique, NM married several Indian women to guarantee safe passage through certain parts of Arizona Territory, New Mexico and Colorado during the latter half of the 19th century.

I am going to start filing for federal benefits as an oppressed minority.

Geez, who lets the stupid democrat cows get away with this crap for 25 years? Oh, nevermind, I know already, - academia, public schools and government- the three headed hydra.

O.M.G. My mother’s name was Sarah, and our family name was Crawford.

I liked it better when Warren was an Injun.

Not just “starting to embrace.....”
Look up Major Ridge...He was a Tsalagi (Cherokee) plantation owner in north Georgia and a slave owner also...
This was before The Removal (Trail of Tears)

Also check out the legend of the Cherokee Rose.....

I just hope he trained enough disciples well enough to keep his “spirit” alive and well in the empires he founded.

What about the rest of the tribes, who were and are one step from the Stone Age? Having spent 30 years in Oklahoma, I’m all out of sympathy for “Native Americans.”

I had previously labeled her “Premise Running Thin”, but with this latest discovery the “Fauxcahontas” label seems more accurate.

Yes, i think he has trained them well. Now I remember Andrew made the comments after the ACORN films came out.

Wonder if they used the wonderful Mormom Genealogy files in their research. Very indepth.

Fauxcahantas responds:

“Occupying and community organizing are in my genes. My great,great,great grand pappy was a community organizer. He was a real people person, too. As a matter of fact, his special skill was in people transportation.”

“You see, great,great,great grandpappy, got other people’s communities together and moved them so that they could occupy someplace else. And he did it all for their benefit.”

“So that’s where I get it from folks, and I’m proud of it!”

No, he's not. He is Sicilian -- that's practically part of Africa!

I said that to a Sicilian once. I thought he was gonna kill me right there. My Irish father in law taught me that trick; I think maybe he didn't want me marrying his daughter. *SNORT*

Your ancestor participates in ethnic cleansing and then you falsely claim the affirmative action reparations intended for the ethnic group killed. Yet the left still thinks they have the moral highground on things?

Me. I think I’m Cherokee/Norwegian. Don’t know for sure, except for the Norwegian part. They come over on big boat.

Now, I figure I’ve got at least enough different ancestries to be able to tell ethnic jokes. Just love a good laugh, even at myself.
