Friday night’s episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” followed Tim McGraw on a historical journey through his family’s past. During his search, McGraw found out about his sixth great grandfather, Isaac Chrisman. After studying maps and surveying records, he was able to find the land Chrisman once owned in Virginia – on the border of Indian territory. McGraw then visited his old property where he learned that Chrisman, along with his two sons, were killed by Indians. Sort of ironic that more than 200 years later, McGraw’s “Indian Outlaw” put him on the country music map. Isaac Chrisman’s grandfather was a German immigrant named Jost Hite who traveled to the colonies as an indentured servant. The family he was serving was the Pressler family, who were ancestors of Elvis Presley.
