My grandparents were Julia Marie Anderson and Ruben Lawrence Fikes Sr. Julia Marie's parents were James Henry Anderson Sr. and Julia Ann Gentry. James Henry Anderson Sr.'s parents were George Reed Anderson and Mahala Cumi Long. Mahala's parents were William Henry Long and Lavinia Darby.
We are trying to find documentation that shows Mahala Cumi Long Anderson was full blood Cherokee. Do you know if she was in fact an Indian, and if so, was she Cherokee?
I am working on the "Rhodes Family Tree" on www.ancestry.com
