I have gone this route because my mother always told me that her mother was Cherokee Don't know why she put it that way, why she didn't include herself. I've also gotten that confirmation from one of my cousins. (Who I met doing research on my grandmother).
The following is all I've been able to get in my quest for a tree for my grand kids. I have not included myself or my mother in this post: If the following rings any bells I'd appreciate the help. I can not afford at this time to purchase any thing to aide in this search as I'm am laid off and looking for work. My Great grand mother and father is where I've gotten way lost. I can't seem to get further.
THank you in advance for your support. I have highlighted in red who I know to be my people, In yellow those I'm not sure of.

Copeland, Sarah H., sister inlaw; born Aug. 1883, age 16, AL AL AL was living with James and Mary E. Teague (Mary born 1874). There was an Alexander Copeland and family living nearby. I cannot connect Alexander to Mary E. and Sarah H. (DeKalb Co. is next to Etowah Co.) < Found a Alexander Copeland on the Not eligible Applicant on Guion Miller Roll 1909 Roll #27951> ( Found James M. Teague on Same Not eligible Applicant Roll #40577) Yet I find several Copelands and one Teague on the approved rolls Miller app# 17684 (dofw ?) Don't know if there is a connection or not.
