My aunt posted this sometime ago, I’m not sure what came of it. At this point we are just interested to see if anyone within this genealogical line is on the Dawes or Baker rolls. We have attempted to search them ourselves but have come up empty handed. If it is of any help, the entire family is settled in South West Missouri and has been for quite some time. I believe we may have some extended kin still in Oklahoma, and the Arkansas area by way of Missouri. The Trail of Tears confirmation would be very interesting, but any confirmation of actual Cherokee lineage is what we’re really going for. It has been heavily discussed in the family for generations, but we would love to see if any of our family members are on the rolls. Thank you!

Query: I am looking for information on Gabe Jones (Cherokee Indian) taken from Kentucky on the Trail of Tears to Oklahoma, wife’s name Fannie Roach(Roch)she was Irish. They had a daughter Victoria Jones and two sons Jim and Jug(nickname) Jones. They fought on opposite sides of the Civil War. Victoria married H. D. Baker. Their daughter Cora Annetta Baker married Charles Dallas Tettleton. I am looking for some way to confirm that Gabe Jones was on the Trail of Tears.
