My great grandmother, Ruth Spear, was born in the Indian territory Oklahoma in 1894.  My mom's cousin thinks Ruth was Cherokee, but I have not found any evidence of that.  Does anyone have suggests for my research?  I'm new at this

Posting a long shot here - looking for descendants of a ROWE family who were located in the Creek Nation in Alabama in the early 1800's.  This area became Talladega County.  Three sons of this family ended up in Texas by 1855 - William P. born 1816; Abram C. born 1817; and Solomon J. born 1818.  We don't know the father's name, but using an educated guess, we believe he was a John ROWE.  No clue at all as to the mother's name.


This family changed the spelling from ROWE to ROE once they arrived in TX.  If even a tiny bit of this sounds familiar, sure would like to hear!

I'm searching for my Tittle-Buffington family.  I have a lot of information on the Buffington side, but am at a brick wall with William R. Tittle.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

   I am interested in informatin on Old Hop Moytoy, Granny Hop, and Sookie.  I believe they were in TN, and possibly in GA.

For those of you who want more info about the Tribes' make up; i.e. physical appearance, laws, customs, rituals,etc. , google and read the first chapter - Changing Cherokee Ways 1690-1790 , on the google books link. From the book Cherokee Renascence in the New Republic. Scroll up to the index link to check for ancestors.
