Re: Forman/Springston - Cherokee

In Reply to: Forman/Mann/Springston by Chad McMillan of 568

I'm looking for information on James Foreman, son of John Foreman and Nannie Drumgoole. Probably born in the early 1800s in the Cherokee Nation East - Eastern Tennessee.

In the early to mid 1830s, he and his half-brother, Anderson Springston, killed John Walker Jr.. After the removals to Indian Territory, he led the group that assassinated Major Ridge. He was later killed by Ridge's nephew Stand Watie who later became Confederate brigadier general. James Foreman's brother may have been Major John Foreman of the Union Indian Brigade during the Civil War.

Any assistance with these Foremans and related Drumgoole, Doublehead, Springston would be appreciated.
