I’m trying to find out more about my lineage. My grandfather was Walter Alexander Bankston and lived near Huntsville, Alabama in the Walnut Grove community. I was always told that his mother was full Cherokee but I never knew her or was told her given name. There is no birth certificate for him since he was born at home and I have never seen his death certificate. He was married to Annie Nora Andrews, my grandmother and they had one son Lois Melvin Bankston.
