There's a trace of Cherokee back in my dad's family, but there is Choctaw and Muscogee Creek on my mom's side, the family that Isabella's daughter married into. Mathilda married into the McLain/Strickland family that is descended from Creek chief Far Off and his white wife Hannah Hale. We've got that line well-documented all the way back to my 6xgreat-grandpa Chief Mad Dog who was born in 1710 but nothing beyond him on the Creek side. But on the Strickland side, I'm having a time with that. There is SO much to plug in because it goes back to the 900 A.D. period!! My maternal grandmother was about 1/4 Choctaw IF her mother's parents were both full-bloods. We haven't got any records on it. Her grandmother was listed on the Dawes Roll when she was 11 or 12 and no parents were listed. It's all pretty addictive! LOL So, what about you? I want to say I say a Native connection or the probability of one among the Hesters but I may have my info confused because I'm researching my entire family and it's a lot of data to processs.
