Are You a Descendant of Pocahontas?

Moseying around the web this morning I discovered a post by a documented descendant of Pocahontas, daughter of Powhatan. Her descendancy has some controversy to it, yes, but she does have descendants from an early marriage plus, lineage from her well-documented marriage to John Rolfe.

It’s quite an interesting read especially since Senator Elizabeth Warren’s native American heritage has been mocked by Republican candidate Donald Trump who has  inadvertently managed to resurrect the name of Pocahontas into the current news cycle!
