Sorry for the few dates.... My cherokee/McElyea connection is on my moms side... Josph Walker McElyea was Half Cherokee... He had 12 childern with Hazeltine Giles(McElyea).. I only have a few of there names... Martha May McElyea born April 29th 1921 (My moms mom) JT McElyea(Goes by Jake), Billy Joe McElyea, Jean McElyea, Olin McElyea and Mary Elizabeth Christella McElyea.

Martha May Maried Thomas Smith(She had my mom with Elbert Daniel Justice) and settled in Coos Bay Oregon...thats where the only living son I know of is my Uncle Jake(JT McElyea).... If you know who Josph Walker Mcelyea's mother is... She is full blood Cherokee.
