  1. My name is James Burt Ross Jr.My father was James Burt Ross Sr. His mothers name was Ruth Ross And I think his dads name was Donald Ross. I have a younger brother who’s name is John Garnett Ross. Is there any info that we are desendents of John Ross chief of the Cherokee Tride. Thanks

    I’m putting together genealogy for my grandson, Andrew Ross Sizemore. Your work is very helpful. I’ve traced his lineage back directly to Chief John Ross through Jane Ross Meigs from her marriage to Andrew Ross Nave (Srl) and directly back to Susannah Ross (Sister of Ch John Ross) through Andrew Ross Nave himself. Susannah was his mother.
    It seems that Andrew Nave and his wife Jane shared the same grandparents who were Daniel Ross and Mary McDonald.
    It’s a bit confusing so corrections appreciated

  3. I am looking for Mary Elizabeth freeman born 1880s.
    Harry or Harrison green Hornbuckle or William L Hornbuckle
    All Cherokee plus may be other tribal heristge including other tribe? Do you have info. Thank you p Howell

  4. Catherine Jane Ross

    Those names stayed in the family all the way down to me in 1977. I believe I may be the last one. Thank you for the time and labor of putting this together.

    Catherine Jane Bowman Ross
