Mary Green - Cherokee ancestry
I am trying to find information on Mary Green. She was born abt. 1825 in North Carolina. She married William Hopkins and had 9 children: Mary C., Thomas, Sarah E., Diana, Martha, Irvin, Queenie, Georgia, and William. My Grandaddy told me that during the Civil War that Mary's husband helped bury the dead. They were also taken prisoner to Indiana until the war was over. It was also told to me that our Cherokee ancestry came from the Green side of the family. William Hopkins died in Owen County, Indiana. I would like to know more about Mary's side of the family. Any help greatly appreciated.
