Cherokee Genealogist: Liz Warren’s Story About Parents Eloping Does Not Add Up

 

What I find most interesting about the Warren interest in her ancestry, is why now? As the saying goes, Someone was out to get her. This story has been bouncing around for a couple of years. Who is pulling the strings and getting the media to care? Whose road did Liz cross into to get this hit placed on her? But whatever, I’m game to join in the fun:

Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes debunked Warren’s claim in a 2016 blog unearthed by the Washington Times and found that there was no evidence Warren’s family had any Native American ancestry and that her parents had a typical wedding for the time period.

“The problem with Warren’s story is that none of the evidence supports it,” Barnes wrote. “Her genealogy shows no indication of Cherokee ancestry. Her parents’ wedding doesn’t resemble an elopement. And additional evidence doesn’t show any indication of her Herring grandparents being Indian haters.”

Barnes added that a prominent Methodist clergyman performed the wedding and that the wedding was publicized in a local newspaper in Wetumka, Oklahoma.

Despite the genealogist’s revelations, the progressive Massachusetts senator continues to tell people that she has Native American ancestry.

Warren’s campaign also claimed that the Massachusetts senator is Native American because her cousin Candy Rowsey edited a cookbook called Pow Wow Chow. A Boston talk radio show host found in 2012 that Warren plagiarized two recipes that she submitted to the cookbook. More at  Breitbart
