Sure wish I could connect my Lott Akin , listed in 1850 TN census as "colored" to the Cherokee line I have always been told he was.His son James D. Akinraised my Julia Terry( also said to be part Cherokee). He is her uncle and one of his brothers must be the birth father.James hasalways been referred to as "Indian" Sure would like to prove it. Anyone out there from this line? Lott is m. to Winney Baker dau. of Dr. Benjamin Greenway Baker, Sr.( of German desc.) b. NY City before 1780. He died 1822 TN.
