    Hi! I’m researching my family history so I can learn about my lineage and culture. I’ve traced what I hope is a lot to the point of my family moving to FL. I was wondering if any Northern Cherrokkee members were known to move to IT in Florida.
    Thank You!

  5. Hello. My name is Barbara. I’ve been working on family tree and trying to get death records for the years 1860-1890 Benton County,Arkansas. Also, vital records for 1800-1860 Georgia and South Carolina. I’m not having any luck because the courthouses were destroyed by fires or tornado. My Mother is an Abercrombie and she’s always wanted to get her Indian card. So…I’ve been trying to help her. She’s 92 years old and the last original (kin folk says) of the Abercrombie clan from James and Mary Ann Abercrombie. Her 3 or 4x grandmother was full blood Cherokee on that side (which was her father’s side) and on her mother’s side, Esther (Easter) Stallcup Abercrombie was full blood Cherokee, which she was my Mother’s grandmother and my great grandmother. Hope all this is making sense. Anyway, if you have any ideas on how I can get these vital record, I would appreciate your input! Looking forward to hearing from you with good news! God bless and thank you!!!!!!

  6. I am searching for any information on Mary Ann Byrd who married Stephen Lankford. She was born in South Carolina about 1800 and died in Telephone, Texas in 1870 where she is buried. She is my husband’s 2nd great grandmother and the story in the family is that she was Cherokee Indian. I need proof that she was Native American. I don’t know who her parents were or anything about her except who she married. If anyone has any info or leads on this, I will really appreciate hearing from you. Thanks for your help.

    1. Check with the Mobile and Washington County Band of Choctaw Indians. They are descended from the Cherokee Nation and were one of the subject families of the Stevens v. Cherokee Nation Supreme Court decision in their favor in 1899 which struck the Indian Citizenship Courts and held that all Indians of the Five Civilized Tribes were effectively communal owners in all lands East and West of the Mississippi. Even though Citizenship in a particular “Nation” may be excluded by whichever constitution in question.
