Am attempting to contact descendants of July NIVENS/NEVINS and his wife Sallie MAYFIELD. Accurate census information (1920 excepted): 1900-1930 is contained herein. Sallie is my 1C2R. Her parents were Emberry MAYFIELD & Josphine JOHNSON. July's parents were Isaac & Louisa. July and the children are accepted Cherokee Freedmen; Sallie was rejected.
