I am searching for information on Mary Francis Brewer 1848-1924. She married Joseph Livingston Riddick(b. 1834 d. 1906). Some older members of my family have told me that Mary was half Cherokee.Although family stories aren't always 100% correct, it is safe to assume that Mary's mother had a large amount of Cherokee blood.
Mary and Joseph L. Riddick lived in Maury City, Crockett County, Tennessee at some point & had the following children:Joseph Dekalb "Joe D." Riddick, Walter Pierce Riddick (b. August 07, 1889), Will Riddick, Ed Riddick, Emily Riddick, Theodore Riddick, Marcus Riddick, and Ola Riddick.
