Now this is where it gets interesting. I was told that my grandfather (Dale Main) was half Irish and half Iroquoi Indian, and that his grandfather was Cheif of Iroquois. His father married an Irish woman so he could not be Cheif. Yet Conrad's mother was born in England. And Conrad would be my grandfather's grandfather. Which means my grandfather cannot be half Iroquoi.
