There were three Cherokee applications for the Guion Miller Roll. A father and two children all claiming through the same source. They also mention the Vernon family through their mother. I found two Applications to the Thomas Vernon that was mentioned. The Vernons had also traveled to Cass Co. Ind. The question still remains about the ancestors of the James Helton married to Catherine Satterfield.
