1 thought on “Disbursements to Cherokees under the Treaty of May 6, 1828”

  1. Born an illegitimate child in 1958 to Florence Willy Clark Bakersfield CA. My biological father is unknown to this day. He and my mom were classmates at Arvin High School located about 10 miles south east of Bakersfield. Completely unaware of my fathers ethnisity until a recent dna test my daughter had. She had had enough of my ignorance toward my biological fathers ethnic back round and took measures to find out on her own. According to her results…kinda looks like my biodad was probably 100 percent…or somewhat close to 100 percent Cherokee Indian. Gauging by my daughters dna results…I am 72 percent Cherokee Indian. At the age of 58 I became aware of my lineage. The reason for my father less infancy is know and private due to it involving certain people who would be tramatised and possibly have their world turned upside down. So it is important to not advertise any identifying features on my biodads life. I lived in the same town for 56 years…no attempts to meet were made by either my biodad or myself. With this said…my question to you is “how can I go about finding more about my distant Cherokee relatives and get myself listed as part of tribe in which I have come from?”.
