I am looking for info on my greatx4 grandmother Mahala Jane "Jenny" Blevins. She was born October 1802 in Virginia & died between 1870/1880 in Shellmound County, Tennessee. Her parents were Johnathan & Charlotte (Muse) Blevins. She married Isaac Cooper (1804-1847), a mixed Jewish-Cherokee/Choctaw Railroader. I know that she was of Welsh Jewish ancestry, but I have heard elsewhere she also had Cherokee as well. They had a son daughter, Jemima Cooper, who married John H Holloway. They had a daughter, Sarah, who married Johnson Ketcher, a full-blooded Cherokee Indian. I don't know if Isaac & Jenny (or even Jemima) were practicing Jews or what Jenny's degree of Cherokee ancestry was. Just for info, the descendants of Johnson Ketcher & Sarah Holloway live on Indian Reservations, & I doubt that any Ketchers know of their distant Jewish Roots.
