Hello to everyone out in the genealogy world! My great uncle RA Driver has told me there was a family book written about the DRIVER/LAND family tree and Native American roots.
If you are related or have any information, please let me know!
William Land is my 9th great grandfather. B:1600-? Curtis Land Sr. William's son was born in 1635 in England only to migrate to America and married a Mary Hodges.
Curtis and Mary had a son, Curtis the second, born in 1668 in Virgina, but what i believe is now Charlestown, West Virgina.
Curtis the second, married Mary Williamson who I believe her family was from Ireland.
Curtis the second and Mary had a boy and also named him Curtis the third who was born in 1702 in Virgina.
Curtis the third, married Priscilla Bird who was born in 1716 in Virgina, they had Charles Land in 1760 from what my records show.
Charles married Mary Ann Cooper who was born in 1773.
Charles and Mary had Henry Land, born in 1789, VA who married Piety Weaver, born in 1790, NC.
They had William Henry Land who was born in 1818 in Georgia and was described as 5ft 5in, dark complexion, dark eyes, dark hair and served as a Private in the Confederate Army during the Civil War period.
I have also located a census card from the DAWES ROLLS that may have information of Cherokee blood in the family during this time.
IF ANYONE HAS INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PLEASE CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY!!!
