I am researching Younacha (maiden name UNK).
She was born in North Carolina in ABT. 1793. She is only found in an 1850 Census in Cocke County, TN and briefly mentioned in the Big Pidgeon Primitive Baptist Church minutes in the 1830s. She married Laxton Case about 1813.
I have yet to find any more information on her. I have concluded that she passed away before the 1860 Census because I found Laxton in another household without her.
These are her children. Some dates are approximate as I am still researching this line.
John C Case 1814 –
James Laxton Case 1815 – 1888
William Case 1816 –
Jacob Case 1817 – 1882
Eleander Case 1818 –
Margaret “Peggy” Case 1822 – 1880
Obedience “Biddy” Case 1823 –
Nancy Case 1827 –
Henry Case 1830 –
Charles Case 1832 – 1893
Jesse Case 1835 – 1900
As with most, I have been told she was Cherokee. If anyone can help me find her maiden name to prove or disprove Cherokee heritage, I would greatly appreciate it.
