Christy Lynne Simonson
Query: My great grandfather, grandfather, and father are all Simonsons. My father has never told me very much except that my great grandfather was full blooded (and possibly of the southern Kentucky area, maybe northern Tenn) and killed by a white man in a poker game. My grandfather was in the Navy and served in WWII; he was at Pearl Harbor when it got bombed. I never knew either one; all I have are a few pictures taken of both of them with my grandmother (I am foggy of the time frame, whether they were taken before or after the war). I don't know when my great grandfather died, but my grandfather died in 1980 or so. My grandmother had remarried; this is why I never knew him. Again, this is something my father does not talk about; but I am on a quest to find out where I came from and possibly find out something about my great grandfather. For years, I have wondered about things, but have been afraid to take that first step to finding out anything. Although I never knew my great or grandfather, I feel ties to them that are unexplainable; and I know I will not feel complete until I find out what I can.

Query: I am descended from William Vaughn and his wife, Hannah House Vaughn of South Carolina and later Georgia. Their daughter, Nancy Jane, was my great great grandmother.

We don't know her name, but Thomas House, Sr. was married to Amelia LeNoir who was related to the Will Rogers family. The LeNoirs are listed at Huguenots and we have been unable to verify the Indian connection of our family. I do know that when my grandfather, Thomas Almon Thompson, tried to get on the Dawes Roll, his mother, Nancy Jane Vaughn Thompson refused to cooperate, said she had destroyed her papers as it was dangerous to be an Indian, etc. She said some of her relatives had been on the Trail of Tears. Any information on the House/Vaughn/Thompson/LeNoir Indian connection would be appreciated.

Abraham Collett
Query: Abraham Collett b about 1715, m Ulah (maiden name unknown). Here is a quote which has led me to look to the Cherokee records in tracing Ulah. "In the spring of 1838, following the treaty of New Echota, most of the Cherokee were removed from the Indian territory in NC by federal troops and militia under General Winfield Scott. Among former Burke residents who were in Cherokee in 1850 was Abraham Collett, brother of John." I remember hearing (as a child) that we had a Cherokee grandparent, but after years of research I have not been able to document this. Ulah (?), wife of Abraham Collett seems to be my last lead.

Juahwana Forbes
Query: Fred Forbes married to Bertha Jane Garoutte. First wife was Alice who died in childbirth and was buried in the Gideon Cemetery near Tahlequah, Ok. Brother was Asa, sister was Lucy. Parents John and Malinda. I am told that the family moved to Oklahoma from the Johnson, Ky area. Please help me validate that they were in fact Cherokee. Also would like to find ancestry of John and Malinda Forbes. Family history claims that Frank Starr, husband of Belle, was a brother to John Forbes and a sherriff in Ky. The story is that when he changed sides of the law he also changed his name to protect the rest of the family, taking the name Starr in reverence to the badge he had formerly worn. Main goal is to establish Cherokee heritage.
