Hi Crystal! I'm still chasing Hornbuckle's, but to no avail. They all appear related somehow. Do you know if Charley Hornbuckle had any sisters? I have seen brothers mentioned, but not sisters. Then again, I wonder about aunts, since the Cherokee were a matrilineal society, they would carry their mother's name.
Clarinda Hornbuckle named one of her sons Hiram Reeves. I have seen the name Hiram in connection with the Hornbuckle's. If you follow the old naming patterns of naming the first son after the father's father and second son after the mother's father, then you have James as Asel Reeves' father's name and Hiram as Clarinda's father's name.
Does anyone have a maiden name for Cynthia, Charley's mother? If Charley and Jefferson Hornbuckle were half-brothers with the same mother and different fathers, would it be that Cynthia was a Hornbuckle and had lived with 3 different men (Youngdeer included.)
