Your Weavers were French Huguenots, but Roy L. Birch, who descends from Mary "Polly" Weaver and Aaron Hardin Allard, posted in 1999 (genforum.genealogy.com/Allard message #84) that (Elijah) David Weaver was full Cherokee and he had the document to prove it.He also said that Fanny Womack Weaver was full Choctaw or Cherokee.However, when Roy posted his GEDCOM on Rootsweb's World Connect in 2005, he made no mention of Elijah David Weaver being Cherokee.And he really didn't indicate that Fanny was Native American in his research.
There were no full-blood Native American Womacks.I'm almost positive that a couple of Womack men of our family married Native Americans.And that would make my Larkin Womack and your Fanny Womack Weaver 1/2 Native American.
I have posted two things I'd like for you to read.The first one will show you how entangled my family is with the Weavers, Piggotts and Quicks.It is on genforum.genealogy.com/Carricomessage #1079.Since I posted that one, I have found evidence of "a" James Carrico in Arkansas in 1823 and 1824.I also recently found evidence that Mary Weaver Allard, Larkin Weaver, Benjamin Weaver and Larkin Womack were in Arkansas together in 1830, which I'll be happy to share with you.
The other post is on genforum.genealogy.com/Weaver message #7141.This one is about the daughter of your Matilda Weaver Carrico's brother Larkin Weaver.Emma Susan Weaver Rodgers's 29 Aug 1908 claim was rejected.It's in "Cherokee By Blood, Records of Eastern Cherokee Ancestry in the U. S. Court of Claims 1906 - 1910 Vol. 1, Applications 1 to 1950". Emma Susan said her grandmother, Fanny Womack (Weaver) was 1/2 Cherokee, but apparently she was mistaken or couldn't prove her Native American ancestry.Since you enlightened me about Susannah Carrico West's daughter being enrolled as a Choctaw, that sheds new light on this ballgame!I would have never suspected Choctaw heritage because the Womacks were always with the Cherokees.
We need to find Emma Susan Weaver Rodgers's cousin's application in "Cherokee By Blood".Her name was Frances Jane Allard Hudson, and it was application #17580.Frances was the dau., of Mary "Polly" Weaver and Aaron Hardin Allard.Her application will probably give us her knowledge on Fanny Womack Weaver being Native American.
A researcher who has your family on line indicates that James Johnson Cantrell was born in Madison Co., AR.Larkin Womack's uncle, Johnson Womack was born 1762 Goochland Co., VA and died bet. 1837 and 1840 Madison Co., AR.His mother was Sarah Johnson, b. ca. 1740.I cannot find a connection to her Johnsons and James Johnson Cantrell's mother, Sarah Johnson.In one of Johnson Womack's Revolutionary War pension applications, he lists witnesses as neighbors, Martin Johnson and Pleasant Johnson.I believe they are related to Sarah Johnson Cantrell.
