We are seeking information on the Eatherly line, specifically from Tennessee Eatherly, who was possibly adopted or "raised" by Alfred Eatherly and Lucinda F. Stewart Eatherly. She then married Andrew J. Simmons, becoming Tennessee "Tennie" Eatherly Simmons.
Family legend has it that she was born within the Cherokee Nation, and our family is very interested in obtaining proof of this ancestry, which would allow us to further participate and possibly adopt from the Nation.
I can provide more information from the line descending down from Tennessee Eatherly, but I'm shaky going further up past this.
Any information would be greatly appreciated!!! :)
