John Scrimsher and William Scrimsher are on the 1817 Emigration Roll of the Cherokee.In the 1833/4 valuation of William's property on Dry Creek in Tennessee it was noted "Gone some years ago".
These are sons of Robert Scrimsher (of 1790 Pendleton District, SC p.85) and an unknown Cherokee woman. His neighbors include many names familiar in Cherokee genealogy:John Kelly, Jacob West, Ellis Harlan, Ezekiel Buffington, and others.
Elisha Moore (b.c.1765 NC d.1854 Yalobusha Co, MS) married Elizabeth "Skrimshire" on his way through Pendleton District so I am guessing she's a daughter of Robert as well (supported in the 1790 census).Descendants of this Elisha report Cherokee blood.
Just thought I'd post this here for any lost soul passing through.
