In Response To: African-Native American ()
Historically the Choctaws were never based in Kentucky. There was a school for Choctaws established in Kentucky where young males were sent to learn English. Information about the old Choctaw Academy can be found at the link below. However, the ancestral home of Choctaws was Mississippi, near Yalobusha, and Noxubee counties.
To my knowledge there are no records of any native people in Kentucky said to have been Choctaws. Perhaps an ancestor may have migrated to Kentucky from elsewhere who may have had Choctaw ties, but there is no record set of Choctaws, or census records of Kentucky based Choctaws, that are available.
