Query: My Great Great grandfather, was listed as being a full blood Cherokee in his obituary. His tombstone in Princeton, British Columbia reads born in 1828 in Kentucky died in June 1891. His parents were Harvey and Martha Jameson. I have come up with nothing in searching records and family trees. None of the dates match. I believe he would have been aprox. 10 years old during the Trail of Tears. I have not been able to find any such names on the Cherokee rolls. He came to British Columbia Canada sometime in the 1850's and married the youngest daughter of the Chief of the Ashnola Similkameen people, her name was Tattoose, Latlatka. We have the history only from when he married her, nothing of who he was previous to that. If anyone knows anything, please contact me.

K Kelly
Query: First off, I want to apologize for submiting just my name. I didn't realise that hitting enter would submit it, I thought it would just put me down to the email address. My Great-grandmother always told me stories about our family being Cherokee. Unfortunately she passed away before I was old enough to ask any details. So, I'm asking for help. Her name was Estella White-Durham-Delk. I don't know where she was born, but she passed away in Sweethome, Oregon in 1975. Her age, at that time was said to be 90 years old. I know that she lived in Oklahoma in the early 1900's. Her maiden name was White, her first husband was a Durham, and when he divorced her, she married a Delk. She had 2 daughters by her first husband. Bonnie, was given to her husband in the divorce and since she was pregnant with my Grandmother (Brenice), she was allowed to keep her. With her second husband she had one daughter and three sons. The daughter was Mary Lena, and the sons were Tom, Dave and one who's name I don't remember. I don't know where or how to start, but if anyone knows of her or has any advice I would appreciate it.

Sometime between 11 Oct 1857, when their oldest child, Julia Anna Ida Shore, was born in Arkansas, and 11 Mar 1873, when she was married in Summerville, Oregon, Mary Elizabeth Tilman and Thomas William Shore moved to Oregon, there remaining for the rest of their lives. The only other information we have on Mary Elizabeth Tilman is from an old family bible listing Monroe and Mira Tilman as witnesses to her wedding. (I have always wondered if she was born on the Trail of Tears, possibly taken in by some kind family. This is pure speculation on my part.) I have never been able to find marriage records for this couple. Do I need to look somewhere other than the regular places to find the wedding since she was Native American?

Query: Looking for family connections. Father: Julious C Robinson, born in Locust Grove Oklahoma 1936 or 37. His father was Julius Robinson born in Clay Co. Kansas in 1888. Mother was Della Carson born in Mt. Home Arkansas 1913 or 14. He had 2 1/2 brothers Joe Mead and R.C Mead. He had one sister Katherine Robinson Ward also born in Oklahoma. Other surnames include Reagan, Wooten, Davis, Moore, Please I am not getting anywhere, and have been searching for 5 years. I cannot locate, nor connect due to families unwillingness to tell me anything, and when I do find something it disappears before I can go anywhere with it. It's like someone is trying to keep me from finding out anything. Thank you in advance, and all e-mail is welcome.

Query: Ward family being of Indian decent I think possibly Cherokee. Richard Ward born 11/5/1779 - died 4/1864 married Amelia ? Muck born 3/12/1804, died 4/1877. My grandmother died when my mother was only 4yrs. She was raised in foster home, don't know any maternal family. But looking in the mirror I see resemblance to Indian heritage.
