Hello, I am looking for anyone who may have info. on my family. This is all the information that I have. My dad is Robert Grooms. His dad and mom where William and Birbleen(Loveday) Grooms. He was a full blooded Cherokee Indian and grew up in Haywood County, North Carolina. His date of birth is Oct. 26, 1915 and his date death is May 28, 1995. Her date of death was March 19, 1996. William's parents were Dedrick and Sarah(Kanipe?) Grooms, I think they were married in 1908 in Sevier County. William and Birbleen had 12 children. Walter, Willard, Paul, Frank, Robert(my dad), Susie, Wanda, Tommy, Johnny, Patsy, Pauline and Hobart(died at birth).
Dedrick was killed in Newport, TN - I am not sure what year, but it was said that he was run over by a car. He was found in the middle of a road.
