Thank you Sue. What makes you think they might be adopted? The story I was told is that Colona was kicked out of the tribe because she married James Cox who was not Indian. I was also told all the records burned at the courthouse.

I cannot find Colona Nettie Cox's death. If I could find that I would order a death certificate. I do have the marriage reels on order from the Library of Virginia to try to find her marriage record to James.

As for Charlie, I could not find any WW registration cards, SS Death Index or Census records that match. It says he is from Tennessee and I know there were a lot of Cherokees from there. Bummer that he is a dead end too.

Any other ideas of search is appreciated.
