Hello! I was looking for some validity to some claims regarding one, Elias “Spotted Horse” Farmer (1770-1818).. He is, confirmed, my Great-Grandfather⁵. I’ve heard claims that he is Cherokee, and other claims that he’s not of Native American blood at all but “assimilated into the Cherokee” just the same.
Anyway, just doing some genealogy research and wanted to dig a little deeper into who he was and what claims were true.
My specific lineage from Elias is (leaving out the living):
Elias Farmer/Sarah Robertson
-John Patterson Clark/Elizabeth Farmer
—John Patterson Clark, Jr/Agnes Davidson
—-Renault Clark/Caroline Grosvenor
——Ernest Rudder/Stella Clark
——-Lloyd Johnson/Helen Rudder
