Kathy Lee,
My Grandmother, Lula Jane Mears Helms was said to be Cherokee, but we have never verified the claim. My wife, Elva, also has Mears in her “Williams” ancestry. The strange thing about this is that her Mears ancestors, and mine trace back to Cannon County, Tennessee, and both moved to Marion County, Arkansas, about the same time period. I tried to use that to declare our marriage null and void, since marrying cousins cause all kinds of trouble. But, she just ignored me, like she has for 54 years. By the way, Elva is the genealogy expert in our family. She has traced both of our family’s way back to 1700s. She probably skipped the bank robbers, since she is persnikety that way. She is on face book, if you would like to contact her. If there is a lot of Elva Helms' on FB, just look for the one with the handsome old greybeard next to her, in the posted FB picture.
