Nancy Black Fox,Mary Ann Black ca.1790
Posted by: Don Panther-Yates Date: May 14, 2001 at 09:27:19
  of 9629

Searching for information on two daughters of Cherokee Chief Black Fox (Inola) of Ustanala who married into COOPER and DAVIS family. Nancy Black Fox married Isaac Cooper in Cherokee Nation (later Grainger Co., Tenn.) His father was Henry Cooper, brother was Capt. John Cooper, a Choctaw chief; another brother, Huston (perhaps William Huston Cooper), owner of plantation on Harpeth River, Tennessee. He was my 4g-grandfather through descendants who settled at Anawaika (Deerhead Cove)at foot
of Sand Mountain on Ga./Ala. line near Trenton and Rising Fawn, Ga.
Family members were scattered to the four winds during Indian Removal in the 1820s and 1830s. Below is a bare
outline of Coopers-- Another dau. of Black Fox took the name Black--Mary Ann and married the Chickamauga chief William DAVIS they settled also in Sand Mountain area of TN/GA/AL.
