okay, as to AlexAlecAlick Burns: his daughter, Lydia, was born in 1812 in nc, ga or tn depending on who's account you read. anyway, she was White, by all accounts, and first married a Cherokee named Charlie Chambers and had two daughters, Nannie and Mary. they lived in the Skin Bayou dist of the CNW. she took off from him and went with my ggggrandfather Oo-ste-ee, J. Hood. The daughters and first husband died in the cholera epidemic of 1867 I'm thinking, because the all died around the same time. I'd be pretty surprised if Alec Burns was anything but White.
as to the sneeds: wow, that's a convoluted mess. some were admitted, some were not. The dissent seems to revolve around the name 'blythe' I don't see a Jacob in any of those records - maybe he's too far back to recount. I don't see anyone named after him, either. They seem to have originated in Swain Co NC and AL before that - that's about all I could gather in a short review.
all kinda crazy, huh?
