Lewis Hanks is my great great grandfather who was married to Sarah Byrd. Who i have always been told was a cherokee Princess, the daughter of Joe Byrd Cheif of the cherokee byrd tribe.I am currently trying to find documentation on this. I Originally started trying to trace my Indian Heritage and it all comes from the Hanks side of the family. If you possibly have any information on this i would deeply appreciate it. In all the documents that i have gathered from family members, i have come across several names that connect me to the cherokee Indian.

William Hanks IV (son of William Hanks III) was married 3 times 1.Sophie Reams Hanks 2.Emily Morton Hanks 3. Emily Miller of Alabama who was the daughter of Benjamin Miller also known as Chief Yellow Feather.
