Re: Earliest ancestor question
In Response To: Earliest ancestor question ()
I am a descendant of Nancy Ward aka Nanyehi, the noted war woman of the Cherokees, sometimes called "The Beloved Woman." She was born about 1727 and was a full blood of the Wolf Clan, the niece of Attacullculla the great Peace Chief and a first cousin to DraggingCanoe the great War Chief. I know I share this lineage with Preston, one of the posters here. Her son-in-law, James Harlin, an excommunicated Quaker, has ancestry documented back to the 1500s.
