This is the only existing photo (that I know of) of my Great Grandpa, Charles William Looney. He was in the Muscogee (Creek) Tribe. I was always told this was a photograph of him right after he enlisted to fight in WWI. Apparently right before he could ship off, the war ended. My family was always told my GGrandpa was murdered before my grandfather was born.

    That's the one thing I wish I had more of, the Native features that some in my family have. I'm only 1/8 Creek, so the only features I have are high cheek bones.
