In Reply to: HERMAN HILL - CHEROKEE INDIAN by Fern Davidson of 829

Hello. Herman could have been part or all Cherokee.
But proving it in this part of the world is another thing. Someone who was a realtive would have had to have been on the Dawes Roll.
Some of the Cherokees did come to Arkansas early on like 1820's.
But most of those folks intermarried so much with the Whites that came, they all but disappeared. I have a friend who looks it but cannot prove it because of all of the above,
My own great grandfather was one quarter Cherokee out of Georgia and looked it, but never claimed it nor registered as one.
Most of the folks wanted to be White and became White.
Per chance you are interested in a researcher, I can suggest a
good one.
Good luck.
