The seal of the Cherokee Nation is a national symbol just like the US seal or flag. It would not require permission to use, but obviously wouldn't be there is she was not Cherokee. How old is the stone? if it is fairly new 20-30 years, some masons may have records of it. Who were her parents? what time frame did she live? There are a number of legitamate Cherokees living near Kilgore, Overton and Pinehill today. These can easily trace their ancestors to Cherokee rolls both before and after the civil war.
