Elizabeth Faught of the Indian Territory[Oklahoma] was probably kin to Charles and Nancy Faught,both Cherokees from Georgia. Charles [Charley] is listed in the 1835 census of Cherokees in Georgia scheduled for removal on the Trail of Tears. Charles' family was wife Nancy ,at least one daughter Margaret; and sons Wheeler and Eli.Charles was born in about 1805 at or near Spring Place, present Murray County, GA. He went to the Moravian Mission school at Spring Place in 1811.His father was either Gasper Vogt[Faught/Vaught], the builder of Chief James Vann's house at Spring Place; or Charley's father may have been one of Gasper's sons, who were also in the Cherokee Nation in 1805. Charley Faught died between 1835-38. Nancy, with her children,Margaret, Wheeler and Eli, Faught went to the Indian Territory in 1838. A good source of info is the GENFORUM: Wives of Chief James Vann ; Google:Cherokee Charles Vogt and Google: George Downing Genealogy.Several books including: Records of the Moravians among the Cherokees, and: Cherokee Genealogist by Emmett Starr, are good sources.
