Searching for any information on any DeArman who was in the Indian Territory which became Rabun Co., GA. According to Civil War records, my gggrandfather, Samuel DeArman, was born there in 1815. I have not been able to find anything about his parents. Samuel was next found on the 1840 census in Pendleton, SC living next to the Knox family and by 1850 he was married to Sarah Ann Knox. I am desperate to locate the parents of Samuel. Family tradition says that his mother was part Cherokee. This was confirmed by his daughter, Rebecca Carolina DeArman, who m William Mallory Kennedy. The parents of Samuel may at some time before his birth been in the Oconee, Walhalla area of South Carolina. Other children were America (child of Sarah Ann Knox prior to her marriage to Samuel), Mary Ann Texas who married Samuel Moore and settled in Yell Co., AR, James, who died in Civil War at Richmond, VA., and John who died in Yell Co. AR. Samuel and Sarah Knox DeArman accompanied their children, America and her children, John and Amanda, (whose husband, William Perkins died in Civil War in VA),
Rebecca and William Kennedy and children, and Mary Ann Texas and her husband, Samuel P. Moore, to Yell Co. AR where they were on the 1880 census. Sarah Ann Knox DeArman died there ca 1879, and Samuel was dead by 1885 or so. He was an ordained minister of the Baptist Church, having been ordained in 1866 in Flat Rock, Franklin Co., GA.
ANY information on this family will be deeply appreciated. The parents of Samuel DeArman have been impossible to locate so far.
