Shana, I think I did correspond with you when I first got bitten by the bug.I actually saw Esuttee on the 1835 Cherokee Census East of the Mississippi.The name Esuttee is on page 27 from North Carolina.I have been to NA Nail and have not found them on the Dawes Rolls.I have a feeling they did not go for any enrollments.That would make it hard to prove Cherokee.Do you belong to Ancestry.com?I don't but they have Eastard,Barnet 1870-1879 Census Ind. NC, Eastard,George 1820-1829 Census KY, Eastard,George 1830-1839 NY, Eastard,Ezekel 1830-1839 NC, Eastard,J 1538-1940 Passenger and Immigration Lists, Please any help is appreciated. I have also come up with Easterd,Nomona 1790-1870,Easterd,M, Easterd, C, Easterd, Charissa all Ohio(Family Tree Maker) How many Easterd/Eastard's can there be?Brick wall is not the word. Total frustration is.Happy New Year!!!! All these names and no way to find out if they are my ancestors.
