Taylor - Lower Muscogee
Hello and thank you in advance for any help that i may recieve along the way.
My mother, Cleo Estelle Taylor is a member(?) of the Lower Muscogee Creek tribe. I say member(?), because as a child, back in the 1950's, she recieved a "membership card" from her father, James Frank Taylor. I have been told to be suspicious of many cards, but have come to find that the Lower Muscogee is a Georgia State recognized tribe. The card has the chief's name (K Neil McCormick, and William (TrueLuck or TrueLove). It also has a membership or ID number, EC451.
I found the name Tay Lor as a native name with the Creeks of southern Georgia on a cencus roll(i think), from a town called Chehowah. I have also found a John Taylor as an Enrolled Creek on another Census. (i think)
I am reluctant to ask for help, because being a bumbling idiot, i'm a kind of emberassed about my shotty information.
Honestly, i dont have a clue where to look, or if i have been looking in the right place. If you could help me, guide me, we will be friends forever, i promise.
THE FACTS ARE:
Cleo Estelle Taylor:
Cleo's father was James Frank Taylor. James Frank Taylor's father was James Frank Taylor. James Frank Taylor's father was John Taylor. John Taylor's father was William Taylor.
My family tree drops into neverland after William Taylor. Grandpa James died without giving us much more than an enrollment card to go on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
