Anvia/Anna Vienna C. Hilliard b. 1848

Anna Vienna/Anvia Hilliard daughter of John M. Hilliard b. 1822 and Elizabeth Shira b. 1825 had supposedly an out-of-wedlock daughter (Elizabeth Addine b. October 1865) when she was about 17 years old. She supposedly lived with a family named something like Chesler or Chesner when she was pregnant. Anvia later returned and married Thomas Henon/Heenan. (People keep trying to make him the father of the child (making him married at age 12). Don't think so.) My grandmother (Anvia's granddaughter) said that she was a quarter Cherokee. My mother had a DNA test showing a significant southeast Chinese connection. I do not know if the Cherokee, the Shawnee, the Delaware, or Wyandot have Chinese connections. In February 1865, Anvia probably would have been in school and the Civil War was still in progress. Where can I find information? Are there any birth records for 1865? Are there any juicy scandal books of Butler County, PA? Are there any really old school yearbooks? Salacious old diaries? Old newspapers? Is there a connection to Manistee County, Michigan since both Anvia's grandmothers died there?
