Looking for my great grandmother's lineage. She was Minerva Allen and married William McKinzie Adams. She was reportedly of Cherokee descent. The only record I can find of her was the 1880 census and she was living in Shoal Creek, Cherokee, NC at the time and she is listed on that census as being born in NC also about 1857. Though I know where her husband is buried I can find nothing at all on her anywhere other than this one census report. Any bread crumb would be appreciated!
