David
Query: Did any Cherokees ever settle in Connecticut. The reason I ask is because I'm pretty sure my father is mixed African-Cherokee and much of his family lives in Connecticut.

Bill Shelton
Query: I approach this problem from two fronts, both my dads and my mothers sides of the family. On my dads side, the question concerns his great grandmother, Jane Morris Marvel, wife of George Marvel. They were married about 1841, in either Illinois or Indiana, we have not been able to find any record. My grandma, who would become very upset when we talked about grandpas dad being in the Civil War, (he was on the wrong side), when it came to Jane and her daughter Orpha, would be the first to agree she was an Indian woman. On my mothers side of the family, her grandma was a woman born in Tennessee, named Sarah Whitson, who did marry an Indian man named Preston Marion. Sarah's mother who was married to a Samuel Wesley Whitson, is suppose to have been an Indian woman as well. Her mother died either in TN. or maybe AR. Samuel died in Oklahoma between 1925 and 1937.

Query: I am looking for my Cherokee ancestor, James Wesley Alexander born 1801/02 in KY. He married Malinda Barnes, believed to be Lakota, born KY ca 1800. Family history has it that James's family came from TN, however, the 1880 CA census shows his father as born in VA and mother born in KY. Were there Cherokees in VA around 1780 when James's father may have been born? Much confusion here. James Alexander and Malind had the following children in KY: Cyrus Alexander born 1824; Vincent Alexander born 1827; Rebecca Alexander born 1829/1833; William Alexander born 1833; Charles Pirant Alexander born 1835; Josiah Alexander born 1838. By 1841 this family was in Missouri. James Alexander never claimed to be Native American in any of the censuses. I have searched for years for records of this family, without any success.

My grandfather William Lawrence was given Oklahoma Cherokee land in Rabie's name, so she must be full-blood Cherokee. It's said she was a Cherokee princess (who wasn't?).
