  11. My Great Great Grandmother’s Maiden name was Elizabeth Jameson, she married Elisha Garland, I no longer remember her parent’s names, I have always heard that she was half Cherokee and half Creek. She was dark complected, slender, with straight black hair, which came out through her descendants. I heard she went by Biddie. Is there any way to find out more about her? My Great Grandmother on my Father’s side was Mary Ann Davis, she married John Calvin Leander Stover, and I was told she was half Cherokee. my sister had a DNA test run, and was told she had 29% Native American or Oriental blood, we have never had any family relatives that were married to Orientals, and never knew anyone Oriental until the last few years. Both sides of the family have lived in the Appalachian Area of North Georgia, Eastern Tennessee, and Western North Carolina for well over a hundred years. I have always felt like I had much Indian blood in me, and my siblings have always said the same thing. Can you help me anyway? I would deeply appreciate it.


  12. I am a descendant of Greek Immigrants. First generation. Recently, I went to Indian Caverns in Ohio. I purchased a Native made headdress. I have a friend’s birthday party coming up in which I had in mind to wear it to. I would be wearing my regular clothes but wanted to wear the headdress because the theme is to wear something festive on our heads. I have two questions:
    1) Is this ok? 2) How are the feathers sourced? Is it humanely?


  13. I am Moscogee-creek. My father was full blood. And my mother is Cherokee of St George.Ga. My people are part of the Seminole nation. I was raised in N. FL and S. GA. The area where we drifted apart from the main clan. Some went south into the Everglades and the rest went back west. I’m trying to locate the clan man that went west. For I believe that they are our true ancestors. If you have any info that can help me locate them. I would be most greatfull. Ahoe
