Hello and thanks for responding. From what I have been able to find Elizabeth Lowery was a daughter of either John or George Lowery. John Lowery was an Cherokee Indian Chief, and his brother George was an assistant Chief. I am not sure of her mother. All of this is new to me, but according to what I found Elizabeth's daughter Margaret (Root) married a Morgan and it is through this Morgan line that I have the Cherokee ancestry but it comes from Elizabeth Lowery. This line also connects to the Sevier line, John Sevier being the first govenor of TN and a hero of The Battle of Kings Mountain. These people lived in Cherokee co., NC and later migrated to Georgia, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
