My name is Christina Braddock. Nancy Frances Dotson was the mother of my mother-in-law, Julia Ann Ward, who married Mark P.Braddock Sr. & who had a son Mark P. Braddock, Jr., who became my husband. He passed away in 1999. I realize your posting is pretty old, so hope you will see this. Can you give me more info on Nancy Frances Dotson? Do you have any proof she was Indian, Cherokee or another tribe? Hope you read this and thank you for posting your message.
