In Response To: Executive Roll ()
In doing Native American research just remember that not all Cherokee descendants are REALLY Cherokee. Since many persons who were white members of other tribes and slaves were granted membership into the Cherokee tribe. One should check the Creek Choctaw and Delaware records very closely also as these groups contributed MANY members to the Cherokee Tribe. I saw this on the Oklahoma Historical Society stated by Paul R. Sarrett Jr.
