My grandmother was Inez Ballard. I don’t know her maiden name. She was married to Furman Eugene Ballard, they lived in South Carolina and had 5 children. My grandmother was Cherokee. She passed away when my dad was 5, my dad and his siblings were adopted out to a white family (Barnes)and used as farm hands. My dad passed away in May, and his other siblings have passed as well. According to my dad, my grandmother passed away in 1948 or 49…he was 5. Can you please help us? I want to know everything I can about my grandmother.
