I saw this message posted by Betty J. English in 1998 in the Cherokee Mailing List on rootsweb:
"I am seeking a woman named Eliza Watseeka Shawheehou. She may have had connections to families..Franklin, McComas, Shelton. Other given names include: Mary or Elnora." Betty
I am also looking for information on this woman. She used the name Catherine Franklin and had a brother, Edward Franklin. She and Edward were orphaned and put in a home by the state of KY. But they were supposedly mistreated and "rescued" by the Sheltons and Franklins. This information comes from the correspondence of Kenneth Wilde and Hobart Franklin.
