John Hedgecoth
Query: Hiram "Jumpin Eagle" Hedgecoth was born April 4, 1812. Hiram died February 05, 1889 at 76 years of age. He married Jane Stone. Jane was born in Cumberland County, Tennesee August 1811. Jane died Janruary 16, 1879 at 67 years of age. His tribe captured Jane and held her captive for several years. At that time she had fallen in love with Hiram. His Indian name was Jumpin Eagle. he took the name Hiram when he and Jane left the tribe and moved back to Cumberland County. That the name Hiram "Jumpin Eagle" Hedgecoth and Jane had the following child: Rachel Hedgecoth. She married Harold Williams. Harold became the father of Lucy Belle "Little Bird" Williams in Tennessee, July 7 1865. Rachel became the mother of Lucy Belle "Little Bird" Williams in Tennessee, July 7 1865. Any info on Jumpin Eagle, Hiram Hedgecoth, Rachel. Jane or Harold Williams would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to prove N.A. lineage to properly honor my ancestors. Hiram is my gggrandfather. My gggrandmother was Margaret Britt who was listed on the 1850 Bledsoe Co. Tn. Census as the 16 year old daughter of John Britt-age 45 born in S.C. and Tellitha (no maiden name given) age 33 born in N.C. Also listed was Nancy-age 12,A.J.-age 4 and James M.-age 3. Now this is where it gets interesting. In the first census of the newly formed Cumberland Co. Tn. in 1860 there is a John Britt Moyers age 53 listed along with his wife Lilitha and sons A.J., James M., Christopher Columbus and Mary E. By this time Margaret was married to my gggrandfather Headly (Hedley) Turner. Family history has it that Margaret was a Choctaw and her family was in hiding during the removal. The only existing picture that I know of shows a proud woman of noble bearing with no trace of Anglo about her. Was she Choctaw or Melungeon? Why did they change their surname? Any answers or even more questions to investigate would be very helpful.

Connie Naylor
Query: ROBERTS, James Edward b. 12/17/1880 Lancaster, Missouri. Son of ROBERTS, Charles per death certificate. No birth certificate available for 1880 Missouri. I found Charles ROBERTS in 1850 census and I believe this is the father of James Edward Roberts. This Charles was born 1838 in Illinois, son of ROBERTS, Thomas born 1813 in Kentucky and Elizabeth born 1820 in Tennessee. Not sure if the Cherokee line is from Elizabeth or Thomas. Need help in finding the Dawes Roll number. Family passed down information that Roberts family was mixed blood with Cherokee.

James Edward Roberts is my husband's great grandfather. He told his daughter Lucille Elzarah Roberts born 1902 Iowa that he was part Indian. This information passed down to her daughter, and down to my husband. James Edward Roberts did not say for sure how many generations back was the Cherokee marriage, but he had the darker skin tone and never needed to shave. So, I don't think it is back too much farther than Charles' parents. James Edward was also an excellent hunter and fisherman. I have only been able to get back this far and really need help in finding the documentation that will show the name of the Cherokee ancestor to preserve this heritage.

Query: I have hit the proverbial "brick wall", and am unable to find my ancestors. My great grandfather's name was Richard Green. He was born in 1854. My father's cousin (the oldest person that I could locate still alive) said that her mother always said that "she was 1/2 indian". I can't find any census or anything about him. He was supposedly born in Indiana -- my dad said that he thought he was from Alabama; I know that most of his kids were born in Alabama. The family then ended up in northeastern Arkansas. Would like to know who his parents were; where they were from; if they were indian, etc.

On my mom's side, we are still trying to verify the story that ggrandmother was a full-blooded indian and my great-grandfather went to Muskogee, Oklahoma and "bought" her with a horse. Her name was Sara? (possibly Saida) Malitia (this name has also been listed as several different names) Lundy. She was born Dec 25, 1833. If any one can help with these families, I would appreciate it.

Kenneth Herron
Query: To the best of my knowledge, I am at least 1/16 Cherokee. I've been told that my great-grandmother was 1/2 Cherokee, but I don't know whether it was her mother or her father who was Cherokee. I found some names in the various rolls, but I can't say for sure whether my great-grandmother was one of their descendents. Any suggestions?

Also, I'm probably a descendent of the Eastern Band of Cherokees, whose enrollment is very restricted. I probably am not eligible, although I meet the minimum 1/16 degree Cherokee requirement. My problem is, I have no proof that my degree of Cherokee blood is 1/16. I am VERY proud of my Cherokee ancestry, but disappointed that I can't enroll in the Eastern Band. I would like to be officially enrolled as a member of the Cherokee Nation...not for my gain, but to acknowledge my pride in my Cherokee ancestry. Any suggestions here?

Thank you for any information.

P.S. My great-grandmother is Lucinda Herron, daughter of Hiram Herron and Mary Polly Brown. They lived in either Hancock or Hawkins Co., Tennessee.

He married 1. Gullie, (The Dove) on 1/1/1810 possibly in White Co., Ga, who was a sister of Chief Grey Eagle. She was born 9/26/1794 and died sometime after 1841, after the birth of her last child. I have tried to research Grey Eagle to find out more about him, when he was born, when he died,his parents,siblings children he had, (Have found information on a daughter Tallulah) but that is all I've been able to uncover There are also records that suggest he was buried in an unnamed cemetery on Marvin Pitts land in the Shirley Grove Community in Habersham Co. His sister Gullie, her husband and many other relations are believed buried there as well. I am looking for anything available on his life, birth and death, children born, his parents, siblings, anything that can help learn more about our Cherokee history.

Query: Okay here goes nothing... as most people say and I am going to say, I was told in my family somewhere that there is some Cherokee Heritage and that the Parsons name is a true Native {white given..lol} name. So I am lookin gfor any information on my relatives. My father is Steven Allen Parsons, born in Tennessee in 1955. Now, his father was Jim Parsons {I do not know his birth date or any dates on him} I am guessing he was born aroun 1920-1930. He married my grandmother Louise Russell. Now Jim's father's name is Johnny Parsons. I do not have any information on him either. None of my family will help me and I am just at a stand still. I do have pictures of my family. I do not know where it was taken, but it is of alot of Cherokee Native women holding me as a baby. I was told that I was their cousin. My father's side of the family carries the Cherokee blood. I do know that Johnny married a woman named Eula-Mae. I do not know her maiden name. So, if anyone can help me, please e-mail me. I would appreciate it very much.

Query: Any help with this would be greatly apriciated. My grandfather was reported to be full indian. [Cherokee or Chactaw] his wife was not. At the time this was highly ilegal so he moved away from his family and she moved away from hers they lived back in the"woods" in or around gunersville alabama. I am trying to locate both of his parents bodies. My father many years ago told me his body was proubly burried on a mound or something and my grandmother was proubly burried at he feet of her mother for comitting such a terrible crime. I was wondering if there was ever any record of who was burried on these mounds and if not how to prove your heratige when all you have to go on is the word of the people who found my father and his siblings 2-3 years after the death of both my grand parents. My dads name was jesse maynard and the names of his parents may have been john maynard and nan brewer-edge. All though their names including my own cannot be verifed as to my dad didn't speak the english languge well so he was labeled elliterate, and this name may have been given to them all "maynard" when he was found by the town's people at the age of seven in 1930. He may have been older no one knows as to he has no birth record.

Query: I am looking into our Weir. Some say that the Weir once lived in the Old Territory... Tennessee/North Carolina before moving to Arkansas. Family stories, dad said that Grandpop (John Munford(?)) Smith said that he used to pick up Mary M. Weir at the boarding school there in from what we gather is AR. John and Mary homesteaded in Brinkley, Arkansas after moving from TN/NC. They were friends of the Cobb family (Robert Lee and Rose Etta (Jacobs) Cobb) who were from way back. They dated each other... John with Rose Etta and Robert Lee with Mary... back and forth until they decided on who they were going to marry and settle down with. They even named their children the same... then one from each family married... my grandparents - Muriel Dewey Cobb and Lola Lillian Smith. Date wise, Robert Lee and Rose Etta married in 1929... so I imagine the others also married around that same time. The Cobb family had been here in the States since the mid-1600's. Here is my Smith-Weir side of the family - My dad's mother's parents are John Munfred(?) Smith, B:12/26/1859, Paris, TN (Father: James M. Smith, AL and Mother: name unknown, TN), D:05/05/1941, Brinkley AR, Monroe Co., married Mary Magdeline(sp?) Weir, B:04/241868, (Parents unknown, from TN(?)), D:12/04/1951, Brinkley AR, Monroe Co. and married on 10/10/1886. Mary has at least one brother - James Thomas Weir (born in ~1874 and lived past 50 yrs old, in Kansas). Mary had several sisters who married and lived in AR. Now, if Mary was 84 at the time of her passing and she lived in AR area since she was quite young. Now, since John and Robert both dated her and picked her up at the boarding school and John and Mary wedded in 1886 when she was 18... then that means that the boarding school had to be in or near Brinkley, AR. At least, that is my best guess anyway. John M. Smith and his brother were blacksmiths and tinsmiths. They made wagon wheels among other things. They repaired the wagons traveling on the route through Brinkley, AR going out west from the east. I am also looking for Mary's siblings... any Weir women with birthdates around Mary's and Jim's birthdates and would have married and settled down in Monroe County, AR. They would have to have a sister named Mary Magdeline(sp) (Weir) Smith and a brother named James Thomas Weir. So, what boarding schools were around in the 1800's when Mary and her siblings would have attended. Mary left in ~1886 and Jim could have left in 1880 and their siblings could have been older, younger, or in between. My best guess is that Mary and Jim were the youngest, because the family only talked about Jim and Mary. But then, 6 years between them seems odd for back then... don't you think? Unless Jim was the youngest and wanted to watch out for big sis or was Mary watching out for baby brother. I have old photos of Mary and Jim and John, Mary's husband. I am willing to share the names of Mary and John's children and our Cobb side. I am looking to find the rest of the Weir family so any help will be much appreciated.
