Jennifer Bassett
Query: There is a story in my family that has been told for generations about my GGGrandfather Daniel Taylor Smith of Shelby Co. Texas. It is said he was found as a baby after an attack on a Cherokee Village in the FT. Smith, AR or possibly Oklahoma Territory and raised as a Smith. He later married Mary Ella Lee and had a child by the name of James FRanklin Smith. I have also been told that he became the first full blooded Cherokee Indian to become a Deputy Sherrif in the state of Texas, in fact we still have his rifle. They said he was Deputy Sherrif in either Shelby Co. or possibly San Augustine. I can find no information on him or his wife other than their names on their sons death certificate. If you have heard this story or have any information please contact me! Thank you, Jennifer

Sandra Diehl
Query: I, like everyone else, am researching my family heritage. My main focus at the moment is on WILLIAM D. MITCHELL and MARTHA CRABTREE. Martha was b. August 10,1827 in Bolivar, TN d. August 24, 1940 in Tulsa, OK. MARTHA has quite a history, she was married 7 times and had 16 children between the seven husbands. WILLIAM was also born in Bolivar, TN and died in 1880 in OK. Together they had only one child MARY ELIZABETH MITCHELL b. 1880 d. 1932 she was married to a JAMES GREEN TADLOCK. The story goes that MARTHA and WILLIAM both came across the trail of tears as children. Being that MARY ELIZABETH was extremely important to the tribe when she was born they came and stole her killing WILLIAM in the process. When she was 12 JAMES GREEN TADLOCK did some sort of favor and as a reward to him they gave MARY ELIZABETH to him as a gift. When she was old enough he married her. They had 4 children together MAUDE, who died at birth, ANNA MAUDE 1903-1980, MARY ELIZABETH 1907-1939 and my grandmother WILLIE ALMA BEATRICE 1914-1990. I have found them all on the rolls and in census records. I am looking for WILLIAM and MARY'S parents and any of MARY'S other children. The other married names I know of for MARTHA are LAY and HAMMONDS. CHARLES HAMMONDS who lived in AR named one of his saughters after my grandmother WILLIE ALMA BEATRICE.

Vaughn
Query: I am loking into my grandmother's family history. I never knew her as she died 17 years before I was born. Her married name was Thomasson and her maiden name was Cody. I am not sure if she was born in northern Georgia, bit she was married and lived there before moving to SW Georgia. Everyone in the family says that she was 1/4 cherokee and in pictures I have seen of her, that could be true. If anyone knows anything that could help me as I start my search, I would greatly appreciate it.

Luther Thompson
Query: Thomas Louis Thompson (he later used Luther as the middle name), born about August 16, 1859 in either Louisiana or Texas (birthdate possibilities differ from August 12, 1858 through January 1865), married Mary Josephine (Josey) Luckey October 8, 1884. Mr. Thompson died in Tyler County, Texas, in 1944. Mr. Thompson’s parents and grandparents are unknown to me at this time, but an older family member thinks that his father may have been Samuel Thompson, and his mother may have been Mary M. Dickey Thompson. I have no further information on these people other than that two people of those names were married in Tyler County, Texas on December 29, 1853. Mr. T.L. Thompson told the older children (all now deceased) that he was of Cherokee Indian and Scots-Irish descent. Mary Josephine Luckey, born March 22, 1867 in Texas, was the daughter of Charles L. Luckey, born October 1, 1832 or 1833, in Georgia, and his mother and father were apparently both born in Georgia. Mr. Luckey died January 17, 1891, at Colmesneil, Texas in a sawmill accident, and is buried in Colmesneil Cemetery, Tyler County, Texas. Josey died Nov. 7, 1930, in Tarkington Prairie, Texas, and is buried in Oak Shade Cemetery, Liberty County, Texas. Josey’s mother was Mary Ellen Jones Luckey, born about 1843, supposedly in Mississippi. Mary’s father was supposedly born in North Carolina, and her mother in Tennessee. This information was obtained from the 1880 U.S. Census, Precinct 4, Tyler County, Texas. M.E.J. Luckey was apparently full blood Cherokee Indian, according to family tradition, and photos indicate Indian appearance. T.L. and Josey are my Grandfather and Grandmother. I would appreciate any help that may be available.
