About Sister Morning Dove White Mansell

Morning Dove White Mansell is Elvis Aron Presley's third great grandmother.

this is rather dubious see https://www.voanews.com/a/a-13-2007-07-25-voa66-66720472/560593.html

”"The most likely thing that happened," he concludes, "is that Morning White Dove was a refugee from one of the Creek Indian Villages that were being destroyed in Alabama. And for whatever reason - he liked the way she looked, wanted some domestic help - he just took her and took her home."

”While there is no record that William Mansell married Morning Dove, they did have four children, three of whom survived. She died at the age of 35, most likely in childbirth, delivering their daughter Morning Dizenia. Like her mother, Morning Dizenia helped nurse people in her community, and she married the town doctor. Her older brother, John, would someday become the great great grandfather of Elvis Presley.”
