Sandra and others interested in John Ross gnealogy:
Quoting from Past Times, Our Cherokee Heritage, Rome-News Tribune, Published August 1997 as a supplement to this newspaper----
"The key figures in Cherokee saga....
John Ross was the principal chief of the [Cherokee] nation in the East from 1828 through removal and in Indian Territory from 1830 until 1866, when he died.
Born Oct. 3, 1790, at Turkeytown, Ala. [Cherokee County], he was the son of Millie McDonald, a quarterblood, and Scottish immigrant daniel Ross, who came to the Southeast shortly before the Revolutionary War to trade with the Cherokees."
