I was always told by my family that my 2nd great grandmother was “full blood Cherokee.” I have found no indication of this in my research but I would like to know more. My grandfather and his brothers did look like they had native ancestry. Her name was Mary Susan Harrison and she married William Skaggs. Her name sometimes appears as Susan Mary. Her father was Samuel Harrison and her mother was Elizabeth Frances White. I have conflicting information on her mother as it seems she went by Frankie or Fran, and I have seen a marriage bond where her last name was listed as Kennedy. Mary Susan was born September 19, 1874 and passed away September 16, 1958. I have found William Skaggs’s grave (and his parents’) on findagrave.com but can’t find Elizabeth Frances or Mary Susan. If anyone has more information on this lineage I would love to know more. William and Mary had several children including Roy (my great grandfather), Ella Lee, Nancy, Martin, and Edna.
