I am a direct decendant of John Chaney and Sarah Iler through their son Nick (my great grandfather). I would like any information you have and am most curious about the Cherokee connection. I am aware of Martha (Patsy) Wilson,Sarah's mother, and believe her father was named Nicholas as was my great grandfather. Wilson I have found out is a common Cherokee last name but such Native American heritage probably had to be kept secret in those frontier days. My e-mail address is on file.
