Query: I am a relative of Cynthia "Jincy" Jane CRAIG b. abt. 1815 in Red Clay, TN to parents John W. CRAIG 1775-1832 and Modare ? HARLIN. Siblings were George W. CRAIG, Sally Ann CRAIG, Polly CRAIG, and James G. CRAIG. Father was 1/2 Cherokee and mother was full blood. Jincy's father, brother George, and mother are all said to have died in 1832 and that is when Jincy was placed on the Trail of Tears. She never made it to Oklahoma, in a letter she wrote to her daughter she states that Caleb BALES arranged for her release and she married him in Batesville, AK. Due to her early removal (rolls were taken in 1835-38 to my understanding?) and the fact that she never made it to Oklahoma, she never received her roll number. Does anyone have any information on this family? Did any of her siblings receive a roll number?

Crystal Marler
Query: I am trying to tie together the ends of my Great Great Great Grandfather JAMES BENTON MARLER. He born Nov 6 1830 in N.Carolina and died July 13 1874 in Missouri. James Benton MARLER was married to MARTHA ANN STEWART. They had SAMUEL ALFRED MARLER born Oct. 6 1856 and another son JAMES T MARLER for sure. In a 1860 Census they list JAMES B. MARLER and MARTHA A. MARLER and their children SARAH, JULIETTA, SAMUEL, ALLICE. On the internet and through this one person I am being told that ALICE MARLER was Cherokee, and that MARTHA ANN STEWART as Cherokee. I know that SAMUEL her son was as white as white can be and so was her husband JAMES. Now in the 1870 census ALICE is not named as a child of the MARLER's so was ALICE a cherokee baby? Was she like a neice just staying with JAMES AND MARTHA in 1870? Is MARTHA cherokee? cuz from the photo I have of her she doesn't really look native. Any help would be appreciated.

Query: First of all I don't even know where to start looking for information regarding my grandmother. my grandmother was born in Missouri (don't know where) supposedly on 4/1/1920. her mother was full Cherokee and her father was Irish. She was immediately put up for adoption. All I know is that her adoptive mother was a school teacher, that's about it. My grandmother passed away in 2005 and we were really close, but I could never really get much information about her childhood and where she came from. I don't even know where to start in looking for information. I do know her maiden name though. and she was also a WWII W.A.C. but her records have since gone missing. Any help on where to look for information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Query: I am working on my family tree, and am having a hard time tracing the bloodline on my mother, and my fathers side to the Cherokee. On my mothers side of the family we have pictures of my great, great, great, grandmother in full indian head dress and clothing. She was supposedly Cherokee. Im having problems finding her name, or any childrens names, except her daughter, Sarah ADAMS. On my fathers side, my great grandmother, Willa Mae SMITH was full blood as well, but her father did not take a roll number. At one time we did have all of the documentation for both sides of the family, but unfortunately it has now been lost. We are interested in obtaining documentation of our heritage, and any and all help is appreciated. Our ancestors all seem to be from the Carolinas, Tennesee, Alabama, Mississipi, Georgia, and Missouri. I can find leads to many of them, but they most all go cold after the 1850s. I do not know names were changed to evade persecution or not, but I am suspicious it. Willa Mae Smith lived most of her life in Arkansas, and Sarah Adams in Oklahoma Choctaw territory. Sarah also goes cold after 1887. Once again any and all info will help. We have several cousins on my fathers side with Choctaw, and Cherokee documentation, but unfortunately do not know their names giving us no means to speak to them about it.
