I have an Idea? There are so many people that have wondered if they are related to This Cherokee Chief Nathan Kirkland and filed false claims to get money and everything else (which happens to be a great x8 Grandfather of mine) If you think that you are related Ask the question why are you not at our Family Reunion? We have one ever year in August? This would answer a lot of your questions If you have been at the reunion then you are related to the Chief! If you had no idea that we have a reunion you probably are not related to us. We have them in Tenn. and if by some chance you think that you are still related to him or us you can always go to our Family Tree @ ancestry.com look up "Nathan Indian Chief Kirkland" Trace and find your name or mother and father or Grandparents if no one that you know is there then there is your answer.Good luck! its that simple! :Warning:There are a lot of Kirklands out there and many are claiming false claims....... The Brown Family Tree is Genuine.
