We have been told that we are Cherokee descendants of hers. This came from my Great-Grandparents William Cisrowe Jones and Sarah Jane “Sally” (Pickett) Jones (1888 GA – 1976 Sherman, TX). (Too many Joneses!)
William C. Jones (1872 or 74 AK – 1923 Bennington, OK)
Parents were John Harvington (1848 GA – ?) and Martha (Hill) (?) Jones.
John Harvington Jones parents were John A. (1808 GA -?) and Martha Jones (?).
Sally’s parents were Samuel (?) and Mary Quinton (Pickett) (Keith) (1861 Tennessee -1929 NM) .
Mary’s parents were Andrew (1825 Beaverdam Creek, SC, – 1864 SC?) and Jane Quinton (1829 ?- 1896 Ivanhoe, TX).
Andrew parents are Elijah Quinton (1802 GA -1849 SC) and Deborah (Thornton) (1804 SC -1862 SC).
Elijah’s Parents were John Samuel Quinton (1774 GA -1835 NC) and Sarah “Consene” Canoe (1794 Unknown -1839 NC).
I have been researching for 3 years and haven’t gotten very far. My Great Uncle did research in the 80’s. However, his granddaughter threw everything out after his passing in the early 90’s. My 89 year month is adamant that we are Cherokee. Could you please assist me or point me in the right direction. Thank you.
