Fields/DeShazer in Lamar County, TX

Classification: Query
Surnames: DeShazer/Fields
I am trying to find information about my grandfather's particular his mother and her parents. I know that my grandfather was born in Lamar County (Deport, TX) in 1913. His mother is listed as Lavelia Fields and his father as Eugene DeShazer. I also have his father's enlistment record in 1918 and she is listed as Ella Fields.
I have always been told that I was Cherokee and have been trying for 3 years to trace this back. My grandmother recently passed away and before she did, she asked me to continue this research.
I am unable to find any marriage records for Lavelia and Eugene and I know she passed away around 1919 and he was listed as widowed on the 1920 census. Without being able to find any more information on her, I am unable to trace the Cherokee heritage.
There are no records in Lamar between 1909 and 1966. Is there anyone who can help to point me in the right direction?
