" My Grandfather Ora S Rardin's ancestors were pioneer boatmen and frontier scouts, who were with General Washington at Fort Pitt. They came down the Ohio River and disembarked at places such as Wheeling West Virginia, and Cincinnati Ohio as they migrated west the Rardin men intermarried with some of the Cherokee Indians. My Grand Father therefore was part Cherokee, and I am a small part Native American." -- Curtis Rardin
