Looking for more information on my ancestors. Starting with my 2nd great-grandfather James Nix b. 1858 in Hickman County, TN, died in 1893. His mother Rebecca Brown, whose mother was Cherokee, born Jun 1820, Dickson, Tn. Her mother Nancy Welch, born 1790 in SC, died Sept 19, 1860 in Big Spring Creek, TN. Her parents John Welch, 1753-1809, Cherokee name was Oo Ga Ma/ Od Gum Ah, born in 1753 in Ninety Six, Greenwood, SC. His mother was a Cherokee woman named Vannie Daniel. He lived with the Cherokee much of the time. His father’s name was John Welch, Sr. and also traded with Jim Beamer during the 1750’s. John Married a Cherokee woman named Elizabeth Jane “Betsy” Hembree in 1779. She was also called “Quatsy”. Her mother was Yen Acona, also Cherokee. This was probably her mother’s name as well.
