Seeking information about ancestors and descendents of Melinda Forgy aka Melinda Forgey who married John Sturdivant in 1-28-1804 in Rutherford Co., TN. I believe Melinda to be the daughter of Samuel Forgey and probably Martha Campbell. Melinda is believed to have been at least 1/2 Cherokee. Here's a 4-generation chart of John and Melinda's descendents as I now know it.
