I am searching for information about Mahala Gowens b. circa 1815 in North Carolina Married George W. Bartlett November 29, 1832 in Pope County Ill. three years later moved back to Kentucky. I have found an application she put in to become a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and is thought to be at least a quarter Cherokee herself with the possibility of more. Any information would be welcome at this time. I have hit a wall. Thank you. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org again thank you in advance for any and all information.
