Recently trying to research my family history. My families oral history indicates that my great great grandmother was Cherokee and several other relatives had native american blood as well. No documentation to support this. I have found an roll application for a relative of my relative Nancy Harp but it isn't conclusion Unfortunately all the elders in my family are gone so trying to reconstruct. DNA supports some na blood likely about that time period. My mother's family was mostly from Whitley Country Kentucky - surnames: harp, bennett, stanfill, lay, gaines, brown, jones, golden, perkins, green, taylor, siler, sears among others. Any hints on how to proceed would be lovely.
