Who was Jemima? My 5th great grandfather was William Harding (or Hardin) 1750-1803. He married a woman named Jemima. In various places she is referred to as Jemima Cherokee or Jemima Dragging Canoe. She was born in North Carolina in 1759. I would like to know more about who she was. Places she lived were North Carolina, Virginia, and Kentucky.
