Grandpa Buckley had never tired of telling the story.  “My Irish great, great, great grandmother was a slave in the south. My great, great grandmother was paired with the new black slaves.  Her children escaped and Indians took them in.”

“I know,” I’d said, rolling my eyes.  “Buckley means servant.  The name was handed down by my great grandmother who was sold to a French fur trapper.  She escaped. Their five sons became Buckley’s.”

I thought of him when I opened the results of my DNA test, and gasped:  2% Nigerian, 5% Cameroon, 4% Native American.

DNA doesn’t lie.
