Re: Faught Cherokee Connection - John Harrison Faught

You're right--there are other Cherokee connections in our Faught family. Wiley Blount Faught's brother, Samuel William b.1807, married Elizabeth Brown b.1809 TN, daughter of John (Cherokee Jack) Brown and Hannah Rice. Elizabeth's grandfather John Brown of Creek Path was at least half Indian and her grandmother Dolly Dean was full-blood Cherokee. It would be reasonable to assume that if one sibling married an Indian, other siblings were likely to as well.

Wiley Blount was married several times and had many children including Sarah (b.1817), Joseph (b.1818), Isham (b.1821), Moses Matthew (b.1824). However, these weren't born until after the War of 1812. It gets quite confusing when these same names are repeated so frequently throughout the generations and different lines.

Although Wiley Blount is not in my direct lineage, I have quite a bit of information about his family taken from their family Bible. It's several pages of typed print that also includes several miscellaneous families of Faughts--too much to retype here. If you'll contact me at, I'll be glad to share with you what I have. There may be something in it that would help you.
