I have been trying to figure out if a certain person in my family is Cherokee or Catawba Indian since those where the main two tribes in/around the area. The only information I have about her is Key/Kee or Kay Cherokee woman who had 3 children with Thomas Correll. I can not locate proof of Marriage or copies of birth certificates/death certificates. Therefore I do not know who she was or if she even was an Indian. Thomas was born in 1787 in North Carolina to John Correll and wife Mary Townsend. This Kay lady is supposedly born in or around 1795 in North Carolina, parents unknown. Some sites believe she was Nancy Ward but I can not find proof of this. The 3 children are William, Margaret and Hiram Correll born between 1820-1825. All 3 would have been born in NC around the Iredell area. They may have lived in TN for a while.
