I have an ancestor, Elizabeth born about 1798. All family records show her as being born in Guntersville, AL. Guntersville did not exist in 1798, but was known as CreekPath at that time. I have never had a surname for her. I believe this might be the Cherokee ancestor that the family has always heard about.
How would I go about possible searching for her? She married in 1817 to my g-g-g-g-g-grandfather. they remained in Guntersville area til their deaths in the 1860’s. Any suggestions?
