Hello,Alice,I have been looking up the Indian blood link in my Atchley book concerning Benjamin Atchley's wife's,Martha Chambers, Indian heritage. On page 108 of this book, it states: " The mother of Martha Chambers is said to have been Elizabeth Daugherty, a full blood Cherokee and who lived in the border-land between Carolina and what is now Tennessee. The multitude of descendants of Martha Chambers, who later resided in the Indian Territory and Oklahoma, proudly boast of their Cherokee Indian descent. Numbers of them, old and youg, were enrolled as Indians, and were allotted claims which they settled upon. In the particular case of Reverend Robert Houston Long, he showed me, shortly before he died, copies of documents and testimony presented about sixty years asgo to the Indian Agency and the Indian Court of Claims at Talequah, which several of the Long family who are descended from the wife of Benjamina Atchley I were granted tracts of land in Indian Territory." Does this help in your search for Indian descendancy or not? Maybe it will somehow. Let me know what you think.
