Hi jim, I did send for the record in question that you asked about. Unfortunately I sent for 2 separate records at the same time.The one they sent me was the first one they came to.
Do you know anyone in Gibson Co., Tenn. that might just go down to the court house and look this up for you? It would be 1830 to 1840, time frame. It is not that I mind doing you a favor by any means. I know someone out there already has found it or live in the area so they could just go to the local court house to retrieve this info for you in a speedier way than waiting for me to send more money for the record.I do have the marriages of some of these children. They are also in Gibson Co., court records.You already have this information. You sent it to me about 10 years ago.Also, the marriages are listed in Gibson Co., Tenn. marriage records.Perhaps this would be the easiest way to get this information to you right away.If not,I will send for it again.It is your decision to make. Let me know. I know you are a very busy man and that I am wasting your time in getting copies to you of information that appears to be important enough for you to want to record properly. Your friend, Joyce
Also, Jim, I do not believe that the Cherokee Indians lived in Penn. in 1725. They were not in Northampton Co., N.C. as early as that date either. So, how do we reconsile these records? I have gone all through my NA research trying to understand this problem.It is a good thing to ask questions.The Cherokee Indians were living in the state of Georgia as early as 1600.I do have a book with a drawing of them and the apparael they wore at that time. I also have several other books that do not agree with this.Their migration pattern does not get up into Northampton or even Penn. in the time frame we are looking at.I believe the term, Horsed Riders was used to describe the NA's that were in Orange Co., N.C., which was a lot later than the 1725 date.There must be a reasonable answer.We cannot put NA's in a place that they do not belong. Thanks, Joyce
