HI, I AM NEW TO THIS BOARD. I HAVE LOTS OF INFO, BUT CANNOT FIND RECORDS SUCH AS BIRTH, MARRIAGE, ECT. MY FAMILY I KNOW LIVED IN BRISTOW CREEK AND BRISTOW CITY, OK. MY GRANDMA WAS LEONA BELLE SMITH BORN ON 22MAY1987 IN TAHLEQUAH, OK INDIAN TERRITORY. HER PARENTS WERE SALLIE ABLE AND EB SMITH. SHE MANY SIBLINGS HARROD(OR HARRY/HAROLD), CLARENCE(CLARANCE), RUBY(RUBIE) ALMA, BERTHA(CALLED BERTIE). LEONA MARRIED A JAMES D. WHITE, FROM KANSAS INDIAN TERRITORY. THEY HAD GERALDINE, WHO IS LIVING AND 82 YEARS OLD, JAMES LYLE, AUDREY MOZELLE, VIRGINA LEE, BEVERLY JEAN, JERRY DALE WHITE. JAMES D. WHITE, MY GRANDFATHER HAD SIBLINGS NAMED GOLDIE AND HARRY. JAMES WHITE'S PARENTS MAY HAVE BEEN LORENZO AND MARY WHITE. I FOUND THEM LEONA AND JAMES ON THE BRISTOW CREEK CENSUS 1930. THEY LISTED THEIR RACE AS WHITE, BUT FROM RECORDS AND STORIES I KNOW THEY WERE PART NATIVE AMERICAN CHEROKEE. IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFO ON THIS FAMILY-WHITE-SMITH-ABLE. WOULD YOU PLEASE WRITE ME? IT SEEMS RECORDS ARE VERY HARD TO COME BY. I KNOW LEONA SMITH AND JAMES WHITE MOVED TO CALIFORNIA WHEN MY DAD WAS 10 YEARS OLD MAY SOMETIME BETWEEN 1942 AND 1943. THE REST OF THE FAMILY STAYED IN TAHLEQUAH, AND BRISTOW CREEK/BRISTOW CITY. I WILL HOPE TO HEAR FROM SOMEONE WHO REMEMBERS MY ANCESTORS. THANK YOU.
