Uncle Jim (James R Kennard) and the Indian story

Contributor: dhs52 Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Indian Story by Emma Lu Nye Draper – 2014 Many years ago, while attending a Kennard family reunion, Uncle Jim, a self appointed patriarch, announced during a family gathering, “We have a beautiful Indian Princess in our family line.” The memory lingered with me, but never strong enough to move me to do the research. That is until a cousin, Robyn Welch, contacted me and said she remembered her mother, Aunt Fay, talking about a lost Indian ancestor. To add to the story, while with my cousins at a family gathering, Joann Bey, Aunt Cleo’s daughter, read to us an entry in her mother’s journal stating the story about our Indian heritage was true; she also had written down the name of Rachael Bagley as a lead to follow. Being the doubting member of the group, I was pomp in announcing to the cousins that I had asked another member of the family about the story and he said, “It is all a hoax, Uncle Jim had invented the story to tease his sister who could not accept the thought of Indian blood running in her veins.” However, after our cousin's gathering, I found myself being intrigued with the story; like a sleuth involved with a mystery which had to be solved. With this feeling, I began searching the Kennard records again. And what to my wandering eyes should appear but the name of Rachael Bagely. From there I searched the pedigree chart and “bingo” I came to the name of Chief Charles Redman Fawling and his wife Annie Beehunter; full blooded Cherokee Indians. Wow, I felt a rush of ecstasy. From there was the name of their daughter Hannah “Cheto Wolf” Fawling who married a white man by the name of Major John B. Downing (my 5th Great - Grandfather). The next two days were spent searching and correcting records as if my husband, Bob, and I were blood hounds with a scent to follow. We were successful. Now I offer the records to you knowing our best efforts were given in the search. We as proud kinfolks can say,”Yes”, there is an Indain in our family line. As far as being beautiful, well, that will be in the eyes of the beholder when we meet her on the other side of the veil. For now the records show Hannah”Cheto Wolf” Fawling to be my 5th Great-Grandmother. Her father and mother, who were full blooded Cherokee Indians, are my 6th Great-Grandparents. There you have it…we are the descendants of the Pilgrims and the Indians.

Kennard Family Song by James R. Kennard - July 1939 - Tune: I Like Mountain Music

Contributor: dhs52 Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

We like Logan Canyon, good old Logan Canyon, We come trailing back here every year. Everytime we come here we have lots of fun here; Kennard folks are full of cheer. We've heard of other camps and other gangs as hearty, But we must say that you can't beat this for a family party. We like Logan Canyon, good old Logan Canyon, We come trailing back here every year. Uncle Lon's the Big Shot, and when we say the Big Shot, Big Shot is just what we mean to say; But we know who his boss is, one he never crosses; Aunt Katie has to wham him every day, And then there's Aunt May too, with her smile so gay an jolly, We're telling you there's a woman without folly, She goes through life so happy it makes us all feel sappy Whenever we attempt to kid Aunt May. And then there's Aunt Claire Matsen and frisky Uncle Martin, They're the ones who always go in style; Whenever he gets haughty, Aunt Claire says, "Naughty, naughty!" And that will always hold him for awhile. And then there's Uncle Jim, a lot of folks don't know him; It's not his fault because Aunt Rhea is ashamed to show him; He lives there with his harem, and though he tries to sare 'em; They just take his ravings with a smile. And next we'd like to mention one who attracts attention, Uncle George Hales is the guy we mean. He wouldn't bring much ransom, but good Lord, ain't he handsome With two strong arms and a might nifty bean. And Aunt Angie Nye, her home's in Garland City; With such a wife Uncle George is sitting pretty; And don't forget he knows it; his manner always shows it; He does his best to keep her feeling keen. From way out in the Basin, Aunt Helen comes a chasin'; She leaves poor Uncle Evan on the farm. The lucern needs a pitching, we guess his back is itching; He keeps the pigs and chickens from all harm. And then there's Aunt Vie Hales and Uncle Henry's chickens; At half past two he starts worrying like the dickens; She pretends distraction and flies right into action, But in spite of that she packs a lot of charm. Aunt Teresa is our scholar; you ought to hear her holler, Uncle Virgil always eggs her on. They have a firm conviction we all need more restriction; They say we can't buy heaven with a song. Aunt Cecil is the kid who never has a worry; Poor Uncle Si, she keeps him in a constant flurry. He does all the cooking, that's why he's so good looking; Aunt Cecil thinks in that there is no wrong. (Mont & Irene Kennard and Marion and Leonora Rogers) Our kin from Kansas City, they're handsome and they're witty; We fell for them right from the start; They may be high falutin but we'll make 'em rootin-tootin For after all we know they're good at heart. And then our cousins, too, from good old Arizony, They're true blue but maybe just a bit too tony. If they should start to prancing or bust into snake dancing, That's the way they try to do their part. We like Logan Canyon, good old Logan Canyon, We came trailing back here every year. Every time we come here we have lots of fun here; Kennard folks are always full of cheer. We've heard of other camps and other gangs as hearty, But we must say you cannot beat this for a family party. We like Logan Canyon, good old Logan Canyon, We come trailing back here every year.

His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse.
