Hi everyone, I am searching for some information about both sides of my family tree.
My father's maternal grandmother was 1/2 Cherokee and I knew her from age 12 until 24 - she died in 2009. She was deaf, and her name was Lena Snow. I can't find any more information on her. I'm sure my dad's family knows more but I don't really speak with them. Lena Snow passed away in Kentucky, and lived there for some time; prior to living in Kentucky she lived in Rockville, Maryland.
My mother's maternal family has Pawnee blood, or at least that's what I believe - I have a photograph of two young women together in a picture and one of them is named Pawnee. I can't currently locate the photo - it's somewhere in a box - so I don't know her last name, but it is written on the back. They both have very prominent NA features. My mother's family is all from South Carolina.
Was hoping if there is anyone here who may know more. I'm having a hard time deciphering the Dawes Roll.

I'm sorry for delayed due heavy errands. I'm here and trying to helping you out about your families and Tribes.
Sorry to heard about your Mother... it's very hard time to keep searching for your Mother's last name... I had many Cherokee Website links (favorite/book market Files) in my old hard drive, it's been damaged due heavy Thunderstorm. My brother gave me a brand new hard drive and hooked up my old PC, works fine. I'll keep finding the right Cherokee links then will saves them in my files, that'll take me more time...
When I get a link then will post here for you. BTW, I'm a membership of the United Cherokee Nation Website & Forum. My Staff member Chief Two Shadows knew about Cherokees, he can helping you out simple way. Go to The United Cherokee Nation (UCN) and the forum address is Forums of The United Cherokee Nation :: Home - not found in Chief Stone's Website address, it's hidden because my member Chief Katy (of the UCN) told me it's UCN section Website and not to sharing with different forums but they're welcome us there if you a membership of the UCN or you can sign up there if you need more help with your ancestors, they can helping you out. I noticed that forum seems almost dead for long time but you can sign up there, our members will checking out when they're have time.

twoblades: Hi Chuck. I am Cherokee and we use the word A'ho as the closing to our prayer. Wado is "western dialect Cherokee" but we use it in the "Eastern dialect" as well because it is recognized.

cherokeebutterfly: Good Day. I just found this page and would like to know more about my ancestry. It is my belief according to my online genealogy that Cherokee Chief John Bowles is my 6th or 7th generation grandfather. I have found other Bowles members that say the same.

chuck: Also, I have read that the Cherokee do not use this word A'HO as thank you, but uses the word wado.

chuck: I have studied the word A'HO and have read in studies that various tribes use this word as greeting, thank you, or ending in prayer. However in further study I read that this is not true and that this word is not real or used. Any thoughts?
