John Harrison Faught, b.VA 1780-d.Walker Co, AL aft. 1830, m. 1803 in TN, Nancy Marilla Manasco, b.SC 1780-d. Walker Co., AL, (no date).

Sarah E, AL 1817-?.

I am a descendant of Samuel William Faught, who m. Elizabeth Brown. Their son James Anderson Faught is my gggrandfather. Elizabeth's parents were John M. Brown (half-blood) & Hannah Rice. Elizabeth's father's parents were Cherokee Chief John Brown and first wife, Dolly Dean (full-blood).

According to Claim No 21413-21397 of James Anderson Faught, his father Samuel W. Faught was part Indian, but as he died in 1841 when Anderson was only four years old, he wasn't sure how much Indian his father was. Samuel Wm. Faught is buried in Faught Cemetery, Walker County, AL, with wife Elizabeth and children Sarah & Anderson.

I hope this helps.
