Hi there Kathy
Thanks for your response
However, I have been digging and doing deep research for six years.You would probably say that General Robert E Lee and General JOhn B Gordon were not Native american. Yes they were.Or Admiral Richard E Byrd,
My grandfather, Robert Lee Gordon, wrote on his Draft card in Tacooma WA that he was Indian. Indians could not be drafted and were not citizens till 1924.
The Cherokee never left Virginia. They have been there for hundreds of years. There is two Cherokee tribes in the Virginia Hills. One was where Nikkia , Pocahontas sister, lived after she ran for her life.The BYRD's and the BIRD's both intermarried. Read William Byrd's writings , just for beginners.
They all said they were "white" It was not legal to be Indian except on a reservation.
Descendant of Lenni-Lenape, Shawnee, Powhatan-Pamunkey, Cherokee, Choctaw and Sauk and Fox, All are of the Agonquian Nation.
Currently I am working on "Saponi" who had "Indian town" just outside of Gordonsville , where my grandfather was born.And moved to the Greensville area. See History.
