I am trying to find info on Matilda Josephine (Josiphine) Belew born circa 1855 in Missouri. Family stories say that she is part cherokee indian. At the time she met and married my great grandfather, Louis Edgar Aaron, family stories tell that she was living in or around the Dallas Texas area with her sister and sister's husband, who was a doctor. After they married in Texas, Louis brought her back home with his family and they eventually settled in the Jasper County, Mississippi area although they may have spent some time in or around the Butler, Choctaw County, Alabama area, where Louis was from, before going to Mississippi. Matilda and Louis were found on an 1880 census, with a child Frances b. 1879. They went on to have several more children. Matilda died when her last child was about 5 years old and doesn't appear on an 1890 census. She was buried in the Montrose, Jasper County, MS area but a tornado came in the early 1900's and the majority of head stones were blown away so her grave cannot be found. Matilda stated on that last census that her father was born in Georgia and her mother was born in Alabama. If anyone could possibly connect to any of this and help identify who Matilda's parents were, it would be much appreciated. I can supply info on Matilda's extended family with Louis.
