It might help if you can get a death certificate from the County Seat. I did that for my Cherokee who was shown white and nothing was known about her parents. There was a birthdate, but it wasn't right. At least then I knew my chances of ever finding anything out about her parents or siblings were slim. The people you found on the Dawes probably were your ancestors. Keep in mind, many Cherokees didn't make it to the Dawes Rolls. Are you sure they were living? There are other lists to look at, prior to the Dawes Rolls. If you see your Cherokees there and then see that not all of them were on the Dawes Rolls then you know some of them didn't make it to the Dawes Rolls. Donna http://ancestryamerica.net

      There could be many reasons, why they're not all there. I couldn't find out what happened to my Cherokee Mourning West's parents or siblings. She married a man outside the tribe and moved to... more
