I am looking for documented proof to the claim that Johnathon Rogers and Annie Combs are both Full-Blood Cherokee.
Johnathon and Annie (Combs) Rogers are my 3rd great grand parents. I am descendant from their daughter, Easter Cordelia Rogers, who married Benjamin A. Branham; from their daughter, Oklahoma Branham, who married Butler Brooks Winn; from their daughter, Willie Lavada Winn, who marriedRobert Olen Posey; from their daughter, Geneva Lee Posey, who married Robert Lee Shadrick.
Johnathon Rogers was born between 1815-1817 in Laffeyette, Tippicanoe Co., Indiana; and Annie Combs was born in October of 1826 in Kentucky or Missouri.
I beleive that Johnathon was married 1st to an Ann Thomas Aderick, then was married 2ndly to Annie Combs (but not proven).
Though, family tradition states that Johnathon and/or Annie were full blood cherokees; I have yet to find documented proof.What documents does anyone have that support this claim of being full blooded cherokee? Does anyone have the indian roll number, the number that family members say exist, but yet they do not have? Does one really exist?
Family members continue to state that there is a roll number; and I have worked on this for several years; and come up short everytime.I am looking for documented proof to support this claim that Johnathon Rogers and/or Annie Combs are both Full-Blood Cherokee.
