Joseph Preston Kilgore/Martha A. Milton or "tyree" (Native American) Cherokee or Choctaw Tribe relation.
ARK, TENN, OK, ALABAMA - TYREE/KILGORE connection
Kilgore/Tyree/Tyre Connection - Cherokee or Choctaw Nations
Martha Tyree pronounced one of many ways. Verbal records were mostly kept but we know she was full-blooded Native American. I am trying to gather info, which has stumped us for along time on the following family members and their relatives.
60-80 years ago, my relatives remember various spellings that were jogged down on how they heard or remembered the Martha name stated as such "Tyree or Tyra" was one way it was spelt. On numerous accounts the recalled these spellings Martha A. Milton (adopted) also possibly (Tyree) pronounced, "TIRE" or could be spelt Tyree, TYRE, TYRA, TYRIE, TIRE" and really not sure what is correct? Through verbal communication, things most times get screwed up.
TRIBE INFORMATION FAMILY HISTORY WHO SHE WAS Family true lineage
Joseph Preston Kilgore/Martha A. Milton also possibly (Tyree) pronounced, "TIRE" or could be spelt Tyree, TYRE, TYRA, TYRIE, TIRE"
We believe the Milton family adopted her (Martha Tyree) at young age after her parents and family abused and treated her wrong. An English doctor adopted her. When he died (abt. 1898) she reverted back to her old name and moved back with family in ARK.
We believe Joseph born 1844-1848 in Alabama Mary born 1850 in Arkansas of the Cherokee Nation
By chance would anyone know this information, pictures or where I can get or any leads on:
