Does anyone have proof that Jack Nave killed George Coker? and when?

You wrote "George COKER was killed by Sallie COKER's husband, Jack NAVE, at the Jake Nave Bend on White River." Is this the same George that you show as (10) child of Joe and Cynthia (Indian descent)?

Other sources show John "Jack" Nave was killed by bushwhackers on the Little North Fork of White River in Arkansas.

I have a George Washington (Wash) Coker, b 20 Feb 1814 d. 8 Feb 1899, m. Nancy A. King b. 5 Dec 1821 d. 11 Mar 1894. The headstones of George and Nancy are modern and are wearing smooth at the Patton Cemetery in Marion County, AL. One child - Barnett Barney Coker. An ancestor that passed away in the 1990's verbally told a family member that her mother's Coker ancestors were of the white-dressed blue-eyed Cherokee tribe.

See 1840, 1850, 1860, 1880 Marion County, Arkansas Census. See 1870
Boone County, Arkansas Census.

See the webpages 195/196 of the book; Boone Co, AR, Turner Publishing Company, Jun 15, 1998. It shows a George Coker born 1814 as son of "River" Bill Coker and Mary A. Orr -- previously married to Herrod/Hardin Coker. This book shows that George was (killed by Jack Nave).

Your (4) Herrod Coker shows being married to Polly Orr and River Bill Coker married to Peggie Holt as his first wife and first child, George Coker b. 1850. Our Geo. W. Coker and referenced in the online book was b. 1814.
