In Response To: Re: surname:Chavis ()
Wow, I hadn't seen these wonderful inquiries and answers. I have been searching for my Chavis roots for years. It appears that my grandmother Chavis decends from Hamilton Chavis of ARK, son of Jordan Chavis. However, I am a little confused as to the dates since Hamilton was born in TN around 1837, it doesn't fit with the dates I see for his marriage in MI to Eliza Jefferies, unless this is the second marriage or ??
I need help in determining which tribe they once decended from. It could be Lumbee or PeeDee. Any help would be most appreciated. We are anxious to solve the 100 year old mystery and proud of our native heritage. We are also brace to accept that we had an african ancestor, which we suspect based on our very curly hair. Please help..we are desperate.
