I'm trying to locate information on Mary Elizabeth Biggers, born in 1862 in Yell County, Arkansas. She was a daughter of James Harvey and Catherine Ann Callan Biggers. She married my great-grandfather, John D. Wooton on 6 October 1881 in Yell County. They subsequently migrated to Oklahoma Territory in the vicinity of Skiatook. Based on my grandmother's statements and her physical appearance, I believe she was Native American, likely Cherokee; she also called herself "Black Dutch." But I'm not sure which side of her family might have had that ethnicity. Any information on her and her family and their background will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
