okay- I have an ancestor- Nancy Lankster (my great-great-great grandmother) whom was married to Beeson Fields in 1826. (McDonald County, MO) I believe her mother's name was susanna. I do not have father's name. I have just begun my genealogy. She is really the only Lankster I have any information on. She was born in 1807 in Kentucky. My family has always maintained that the have indian blood and that perhaps Nancy's husband was 1/4 cherokee? Their daughter together, Susanna Emma Fields (b. 8/14/1839 McMinn County TN d. 2/1/1892 McDonald County MO)is AKA Emma LIne Fields or Emaline Fields. (presumably) Anyway I did fiend a Choctaw roll # recently for her- FD86. I am just starting to look for more info to verify this.
Shee married Samual Beeman. They had a son James Lankster Beeman whom fathered Bertha M. Beeman- my grandmother. I am Shelly Lynnette Cruzan- Mascher. anyway please contact me anytime- I would like more info myself- email@example.com
