I am helping my husband research his family. His maternal grandmother was Callie Madgaline Owl, who married Tom Moody. Among their many children was my mother-in-law (deceased), Ethel Applee Moody who married Frank Eckard. Are you related to Callie Owl? We have pictures of Callie and her siblings in their older years, but no-one has been able to tell us about Callie's parents, etc. Even though my husband is on the Eastern Band of Cherokee Nation tribal member scolls, they won't help him do research. Can you help?
Most of his family is still in the Catawba County, Burke County, McDowell County areas of North Carolina.
