I just found your message on the ancestry.com message board. I know it was years ago when you posted it but I thought I 'd take a chance your address still worked. I'm researching the Brogans from Floyd and Franklin Co. Va. It has been passed down that Maranda Margaret Sledd was part Cherokee Indian. She married George Edward Brogan. Did you ever find out anything to let us know if the Sledds were Cherokee or not?
