  1. My Great Grandmother is Ida Mae Blair, of Elizabeth WV, born 1877, wife of my Great Grandfather Emery Eaton, they moved to Athens-Nelsonville OH, and had 5 or 6 boys, one being Grandpa Lonnie Eaton 1900-1989? My father Jack, 1930-2011, said we had a Cherokee Great Grandmother…that would be Ida M Blair

  2. I just took a YDna test and apparently. Related to the above Blairs. However our last name we know is Cornelius and first shows up in Cumberland Kentucky. But list his parents as being from North Carolina.
    I have learned while trying to tract my Native blood someone always knows.
    If a person reads this comment and knows why the last name switched from Blair to Cornelius I would greatly appreciate the knowledge.

      My Great, Great Grandfather was George Blair. George came from North Carolina to Oklahoma on the trail of tears. On this trip he lost his wife and his sister (along with her husband and four children). He re-married his wife’s sister (who also came on the trail along with her children). Unsure when Cornelius came into the family.
