"Looking for Isaac Rogers", - Cherokee Freedman

Tune in at 8pm Eastern time to hear Nicka Smith, great great granddaughter of US Deputy Marshall Isaac (Ike) Rogers tonight on Family Tree Webinars!

Ike Rogers served under Federal Judge Isaac C. Parker and worked many cases in Indian Territory. A citizen of Cherokee Freedmen, Isaac Rogers history is well known to those who research Indian Territory history. Rogers was once enslaved by the same family that produced Cherokee humorist Will Rogers, and was in fact enslaved by Clem Vann Rogers, the entertainer's father.

Nicka Smith shares her journey to document this history and also her own personal journey documenting her history and that of others who descend from Freedmen of Indian Territory in general and Cherokee Nation in particular.
