Query: Does anyone have any information on Chief James Johnson? I've been told that my GGGgrandma was full blooded Cherokee and that her Father, James Johnson, was a Cherokee chief. I've never been able to find any more information about them. I just saw a reference to a document about this chief of Turkey Town in 1837. I'm wondering if this could be my GGGgrandma's Father. All the information that I have on her states that she was born in 1835 in Hawkins County Tennessee. I just found an 1880 census record for Overton County (which is where they were married) and it looks to me like it is her and her husband, but it shows her age being 35 and her husband, O.B. Dodson, being 47. His age is accurate and it says he is a Minister, which he was. She is shown as A.M. Dodson. One of their 8 children is L.C. Dodson and is the right age to be my GGgrandma. I'm confused though, because all the records I've seen (Family Bible, typed out online) shows they were married in 1851. That would be impossible, of course, if she was born in 1845. Their names are Orville Bradie (or Bradley) Dodson (born Jan 8, 1833) and Alta Mary Johnson (born Nov. 26, 1835 or 1845)and their daughter was Louisa Cornelia Dodson (born May 29, 1864 / married to Jesse Gilliam in 1881). I've also seen their names as Stephen Orville Dodson and Mary Alta Catherine Johnson. It's TOO confusing to me, PLUS the court records are gone because there was a fire at the courthouse. Please, if you have any information on this family AND/OR Chief James Johnson, let me know. Thank you so much.

Query: I do not know much. I am looking to trace back my ancestry. My great-grandmother Dora Jane Alexander (maiden name) born 1894 in Tennessee on the 1900 census she was listed in Henderson, TN. She had a sister she called sister--my grandmother does not know the name of Dora's parents. Dora may have been married twice. Her first family of children died from tuberculosis (I believe like 5-7 children including a set of twins) and she had another family later in life with John Jones in southern MO. I believe she or her mother were Cherokee based upon snippets of family history talking about Cherokee but she never talked much about her life before and including her children's deaths. I am interested in any information and help. Thank you.
