Hello, below is my ancestry from my grandfather Jess Herod to my 6gf Edward Wilkerson. He was an Indian Agent who married Mollie, a Cherokee woman. Jess and William are on the Dawes Roll, but I cannot find any information on Mollie. Edward and Mollie were not famous enough to merit internet mention, but they did have a son, Edward jr. who married a Cherokee woman named Coo Ta Ya. Their daughter, Eliza married Jesse Bushyhead, a religious leader. Their son Dennis was Principal Chief from 1879-1887. Maybe someone has done research on the families of Chiefs and has info on his great grandmother, Mollie. Thank you Mike

Hi, I am also interested in the descendants of Mollie Wolfe, and in particular their relationships to the Jones, Meek/Meig/Meeks, Blevins, Bean, Owen and Standridge families and whether or not any of those families have Cherokee connections themselves as has been rumoured.
My family genealogy is a mess of misinformation and confusion, and ANY hints in the right direction would be so useful to me.
James Welch + alleged Cherokee woman > Edward Wilkinson Sr + Mollie Welch/Wolfe >> Thomas Jones + Elizabeth Wilkerson >>> John Jones + Alafair Meek >>>> Noah Lewis Jones + Lucinda Standridge
is the specific line I'm asking about, and I'm not even sure this information is correct.
Does anyone have more information on this family, or the surnames Blevins, Meek/Meeks/Meig/Meigs, Standridge, Jones, Owen and Bean, either confirming or denying Cherokee ancestry?
To be clear, I am not interested in enrollment and I do not plan on claiming to be Cherokee. I just want to know how much of my genealogical heritage is factual and how much is completely invented. Any help would be SO APPRECIATED!
I am from the Thomas Jones/Elizabeth Wilkerson line. My mother used to talk about people with most the last names you listed. I'll tell you who is a wealth of information. Her name is Betty Renfrow. She and her 2 sisters have done extensive research of Your list of names and their relations to each other. I got pictures of my great grandmother who was Mollie's granddaughter. Google her

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?
