Sandy Scofield
Query: My Great, Great, Great Grandparents were James Jackson Reavis/Revis/Reeves, Mary Elizabeth Williams. They were married in Cherokee County Georgia in 1844. James Jackson Reavis died around 1908 in Texas. Their Grand daughter (my great Grandmother) Martha Jane "Revis" Miller, told the family that her Grandmother Elizabeth Williams Reavis was Cherokee. Other descendants (from other children of James Jackson Reavis and Elizabeth) have said that they were told the same thing. I have been told that Martha Janes father-Tom Reavis, passed as white, but even so, the descendants have said he had a terrible time growing up. I am sure that any one who has Indian, or Black blood, knows what that feels like. I only experienced it a few time in my life, when I was in Junior High, and the Mexican kids called my halfbreed (I have NO idea how they knew I was part "maybe" Indian, it was not something the family spoke of), and when I lived in Corsicana, Texas, in the years 1983-1985. The locals would look at me, and tell me I was from Oklahoma, that I was one of them Cherokees. I have not found ANY proof that Martha Jane's Dad and Grandmom were Cherokee. I can't find any information on Elizabeth Williams prior to her marriage to James Jackson Reavis, I have no idea what her parents names were. NOW- my Mom's cousin JoAnn in Oklahoma was just told by my Grandmother's sister Sybil that her Grandmother was Indian. Her name was Mary Ester Rushing, she married Joseph Edward Brennan in Coffee County Georgia.

HOW do we find records on people, whom MAY have been Indian, but who obviously do not have any records of this ?? (I have already been "flamed" for trying to find out why my Dad and Grandfather Miller both got checks from 1946-1957, for small amounts each, $8-$15, and told the checks were for garden tools they never received, I made the mystake of asking if these could have been annuity payments, and got ripped apart for suggesting that any Cherokee got anything, ever). Would appreciate any "positive" help, or suggestions. Please, if you are of Indian heritage, do not use my query as an excuss to Attack/Flame. I am simply trying to find out who my ancestors were, so my children and their children know who their ancestors were. Thank you in advance for any positive help I may be blessed in receiving.

Query: I have an old family photo of an old woman which says the following on the back: "Lived with Cherokee Indians, married chief of tribe". On the back the following names are also written: Mrs. L. R. Shepherd, Mrs. Addison, Grandma Cole,( Mathilda Krause). There aren't any dates, however I can tell it is old, by the way the woman is dressed. Also, my 3 great-grandfather was John Addison Smith,b. 1810 Kentucky. He was married to Cynthia (Stewart ) Floyd, descended from Nicketti (Chief Powhaten's grand-daughter) My family speculates the woman in the picture may have been John Addison Smith's mother. Does any one know who this woman could be, or what chief she may have married? Is there any record of Cherokee chiefs and who they married?

Charles Vaughan
Query: I'm looking for information relating to Leanawake, William Bob (or Babb or Babbs), George Martin, and Annie Martin. The Dawes report lists William Bob and Leanawake as parents of Annie Martin. Annie Martin (Cherokee Roll No. 31668; Delaware Roll No. 1038) was my great-grandmother. Family lore says William Bob and Leanawake lived on a farm near Fort Smith, Arkansas. They were supposedly descendants of settlers who settled around Fort Smith after traveling over the Trail of Tears around 1838. Both died along with many other Cherokee living near Fort Smith in the late 1800s (from an epidemic?). Leanawake died shortly after giving birth to Annie, who was brought as an infant to Oklahoma Indian Territory. She married George Martin and was 19 years old, living near Dewey Oklahoma (just north of Bartlesville) by the time she was enrolled by the Dawes Commission. She died at Claremore Indian Hospital in Oklahoma about 1957. I know very little else about any of these persons; any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
