Cal Young Vann
Query: I am almost certainly a GGGG grandson of Chief James Vann. My grandfather, Jesse Thomas Vann, was a son of Jesse Greenberry Vann. Both are buried in Antioch Baptist cemetery, 2 miles South of Apison, Tennessee, where the lived out their lives. I have found my great grandfather, Jesse G, on the Bradley County census of 1870. He was 18 then and married a woman 10 years older than himself, a widow with 4 children, one of which she brought to the marriage. My great grandfather named his first born son "James D." It is on that account that I strongly suspect my great grandfather was a son of James Denton Vann and Rosannah (Keithcart) Vann of Spring Place in Murray countuy, Georgia. They appear there on the census of 1850 and 1860. My great grandfather was born in 1852 and would have been about 8 on the 1860 census; while he is not enumerated among the children, he might have been visiting relatives, especially if the census had been taken in summer when school was not in session. Maybe his parents were busy or preoccupied when the Census taker stopped by. James Denton's father was John Vann, whose father was town chief James Vann. The missing bit of evidence is proof of Jesse G's parents. Spring Place is 31 miles SW of Apison. It has proven an illusive bit of information. Tennessee issued no death certificate on Jesse G. I would be grateful for any help, ecstatic over an acceptable categolry of proof. Thanks, Cal

Cherokcal
Query: My great grandfather was Jesse Greenberry Vann Jne 1852/Oct 1907. He lived in Apison TN throughout his qadult life. I believe he was the son of James Denton Vann, on the Murray county Ga census as living at or near Spring Place. He and his family are on the Murray Co Census of 1860 and 1870. My grandfather in not listed among them on the 1870 census, but there is room for him in the birth order/dates. At 18 my great grandfather married a widow of 28 with 4 children. He named his first born sone James D, likely after his father. I need to pin that relationship down, to affirm I am the GGGG grandson of Chief James Vann. Thanks in advance for any help.

Dorothy Spring
Query: I have been searching for information about my great grandmother, Sarah Matilda Houlcum-Holcome---Holcomb. She was born abt 1845, married Charles Clay Hughart in 1861, in MO died abt. 1875 either MO or IL. I have been told that she was a full blooded Cherokee Indian, but the only proof I have, is I found their oldest son James Henry Hughart and his family on the 1900 Dawes Roll. It states he was half Cherokee. I know his father was from Ireland, so it would have to be his mother. If any one has any information about Sarah or her family, I would very much appreciate hearing from you.

Carah Shore
Query: My great great grandmother was full blooded cherokee. Her name was Katie Birdsong. She was born deaf and dumb. When she was young, she was raped by a white settler (my great great grandfather)who was described only as a man with a limp. When she gave birth, she named the little girl Virginia Birdsong. Virginia later married a white settler with the last name of Forester. They went on to have 13 children one whom died at birth. My grandmother Betty was the youngest girl and married Earl Wayne Warnhoff Sr. They had 4 children together two girls and two boys. My mother Linda then married my father Andrew Charles Shore Sr. and they had 2 children me and my brother. I was wondering if anyone knew the name of Katie's mother. If it wasn't for her, then my great grandmother probably would have died because her mother couldn't take care of her. Thanks

My grandfather has told us stories that his grandmother or great grandmother was Cherokee. My sister remembers that grandfather said he had gotten a letter to be able to get land in Oklahoma. Is there anyway or anywhere I can go to find information? He had a half-brother that moved to Stephens County, Oklahoma. I do not know if he also received a letter and perhaps took the land. I would appreciate any help. If anyone is researching the SHELTON family I would be glad to check and see if our families connect.
