How interesting to hear of your son's ancestors who were Cherokee Freedmen!! You have managed to gather substantial information about the history of the Freedmen. If you have not already done so I encourage you to look at the work by Daniel Littlefield "The Cherokee Freedmen From Emancipation to Citizenship".
I am also excited about meeting someone who is familiar with the history of Joseph "Rich Joe" Vann. More than likely your son's people may have been involved in the courageous slave revolt of 1842. Do live in or near Oklahoma?
I just returned from a 10-day research trip to Oklahoma and think of Rich Joe everytime I see Webber's Falls. That is where Joe Vann's estate was.
Great to have you aboard and contributing to the board!!
