Re: Tribal Rolls with African Citizens-Cherokee
In Response To: Re: Tribal Rolls with African Citizens-Cherokee ()
I have seen some interesting records pertaining to the Eastern Cherokees and African citizens among the many "rejected" records of Cherokee applicants. I am referring to some of the Guion Miller rejected applicants, who has some very interesting documented ties to the nations and some wonderful family history to see documented.
Their reason for being rejected in some instances was having had African blood. (As time passes, this sentiment is apparent across more than one nation.) I shall try to find a reference number for you to utilize so that you may investigate these records. Many are microfilmed, and you should be able to find them. Note that the applicants are from more than one state as well.
