Dear Gunter Listas,
I am the granddaughter of Frank Leonard Gunter, of Nashville, Tn.
"Family tradition" led me to think I might be a descendant of Ghigoneli
(Catherine) Gunter, and thus on one side affirm a claim to Indian blood.
I am not having much luck yet... but perhaps some of you will be helped by
this info, and some of you may write to help me.
