Classification: Query
Surnames: Parker, Chisum, Chisholm
I have always been told that I have Cherokee Indian blood. I believe that it flows thru Sarah Parker who married Jesse Walling, the 1st born of Anna Chisum (Chisholm) and John Walling or thru Anna Chishum. her parents were both Chisum's. Her father was John Chisum III and her mother Margaret Chisum. Her grandfather was John Chisum II and her great grandfather John Chisum I. John Simpson Chisum (the great cattle baron) also comes thru this linage. And we have been told that their is a link to Jesse Chisum (Chisholm) of Chisholm Trail fame. What can you tell me about all this?

I was told that Thomas Jefferson Walling, one of the sons of Anna Chisum and John Walling filed papers to see if his mother was Cherokee. But I have no info what became of this.
