I have been told my whole life that my great grandmother on my father’s side was Cherokee. Her name was Mary Nipper and she was from the Florence/Muscle Shoals area of Alabama. Her daughter, my grandmother was named Della. She married a Butler. My father’s name was A.D.(initials only) Butler. My name is Helen Butler Belk. I would appreciate any help in finding out about my heritage, as I have always been proud of my Native American heritage. Thank you.
