Does anyone know Woodhull's relationship with any Native American tribes? My thesis research revolves around a woman of the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska...When her father was a little boy attending the Omaha reservation's mission school, Victoria Woodhull visited. She asked for permission to adopt him and take him back to New York City with her, but his mother would not let her. So instead, Woodhull "adopted" him and gave him the name that he went by from that point: Spafford Woodhull. I guess that "Spafford" is the name of one of Woodhull's relatives...maybe an uncle or a cousin?
If anyone has any information about any sources dealing with these issues please email me and let me know. Thank you so much.
