I see from an old gen forum posting that you have researched the Bottom family genealogy. If you do not mind, perhaps you can direct me.
My Bottomfamily shows up in KY with an Abner Bottom b. 1777 in VA married to Betsy Chandler, who's son was William D. Bottom b. 1826 in KY married to Sarah A. Sims, who's son was Lazarus A. Bottom b. 1855 in Russell Co. KY married to Sirena Logan Williams, who's son was William Powell Bottom aka "Lilburn" married to Emma & Lucy & Nellie. Lilburn was a WWI veteran who served with Sergeant York and he looked VERY Am. Indian. We are trying to get to the bottom of this Bottom Indian heritage. My paper trail takes me back to 1600 in England, not the Oklahoma Cherokee Indians as the family thought it would. I am trying to find out if there was Indian adoption in this family (as I found out there was in other branches of the family in KY at that time). Did your research touch any of this branch?
