My brick wall is my great grandfather Henry Finis Akin (or Akins), born 22 June 1881 in Louisville, Kentucky.He died in Dallas, Texas on 31 Dec 1937.
My mother tells me he always said he was 3/4 Cherokee and 1/4 French.He was married to Julia Ann Hestand who was born 12 Jan 1888 possibly in Arkansas and died around 1957 to 1960 in Dallas, Texas.
I have heard that some of the family walked the "Trail of Tears" however I do not have any valid proof of any kind as yet.
