I am seeking information on Dora Adams of Virginia (b. 1861 d. 1923).She ran away from home and married a Native American Indian (name unknown) from Oklahoma and had a child abt.1888 named Mary. Her wealthy Virginia family would not let her back into the family. She began living in Kentucky in the 1890's.
Dora Adams married Eugene Chappell (Chappel)in about 1890.They primarily lived in the Louisville, Kentucky area. When she and Eugene married, he adopted Mary. Eugene and Dora had three more children: Edward, Deborah, and Effie Tylene (my grandmother).They were all born in Louisville, KY.My understanding is that Eugene was French and had two sisters.After he and Dora divorced he supposedly went to Georgia.
Any assistance in tracing back this arm of my family would be greatly appreciated.
