I was told that my great-grandmother Louella Elizabeth Cooper was of Cherokee blood. She married a Conway, and I know her father’s name was Henry ‘Cap’ Cooper. She was born in Robertsdale, Alabama around 1880. I know that area held a lot of Creek Indians but I also know the Creeks merged with the Cherokee.
I have an ancestor, Elizabeth born about 1798. All family records show her as being born in Guntersville, AL. Guntersville did not exist in 1798, but was known as CreekPath at that time. I have never had a surname for her. I believe this might be the Cherokee ancestor that the family has always heard
