Query: My grandmother Cordia Missouri Humphreys (Humphries, Humphris) was born in Corsicana, TX in Navarro Co. Her father W.W Humphreys lived there in 1910 with his wife Onie (full blooded cherokee) and their other children. I am trying to trace my Cherokee roots and also learn more about my family. W.W Humphreys born in Mississippi around 1858-1859 (father & mother born TN) and Onie Humphreys born in Mississippi around 1867-1868 (father born TN, & mother born MS) married possibly around 1887-1886? Children are: Hettie Humphreys born around 1892-1893 in TN, Jeane Humphreys born around 1893-1894 in TN, Lucy Humphreys-Ward born 1896-1897 in TX, Cordia Humphreys born Nov 1903 in TX, Velma Humphreys born around 1908-1909 in TX (see 1910 census Navarro Co. TX). Cordia lost contact with her family. I believe her father W.W Humphreys is buried in Navaro Co. because he wasn't in Tennessee with them in 1920 when the census was taken. Onie's father was born in Tennessee and her mother was born in Mississippi as was Onie herself.

Melissa Mason
Query: Sloane/Slone/Sloan: I am researching information on my grandmother Parthina S. Sloane Francis. I'm not sure of the spelling of her maiden name. She was a full blooded Cherokee. Parthina was born in 1902 in either Kentucky of West Virginia. I have no information whatsoever on her parents or siblings. She was married to Solomon "Sol" Francis. From what my aunts have told me she had at least ten children but only four of them are still living. The children I have names for are: Geraldine Francis Duncan passed away in 1994 she lived in Garrett, Ky; Shirley Francis Skidmore of Newark, Ohio; Buelah May Francis Shannon of Newark, Ohio; Fannie Jean Francis Small of Buckeye Lake, Ohio; and my father Perry Francis of Hebron, Ohio. My grandparents moved to Ohio when my father was just a boy. My dad was the baby of the family. He was born Sept. 7, 1945. My grandmother passed away in 1974. She was in a diabetic coma and never came out of it. She is buried in Wilson Cemetery in Licing County, Ohio. From what little my father has told me he said that most of the children that died had been sick with shingles and things like that.
