My great grandfather died at Willamette, Oregon and is buried at Oregon City. I followed his folks back to Georgia before the "Trail of Tears"..My great grandmother was Cherokee, Long Hair Twisted Hair Clan and daily privately used her Cherokee Traditional name.
Most Cherokee were on the run.Fifty million were massacred in the 1800's ( untold American History)They would change names but usually traveled together for self protection.
Where is Verville? My Gordon's acquired the property of what is now "Gordonsville VA from "Edmonds".
