Thank you so much for the reply. I see that you have Cherokee in the tree. My dad told me he was Scotch-Irish and American Indian but we (me & my siblings) have always questioned it because we never met the family and there are only a few photos my mom found and no documentation of american indian. The American Indian was mentioned on his mothers side. Her father was Ben F Neal and her mother was Kathryn Sweat. My dad told my mom the Cherokee was on the Sweat side. Maybe both Sweat and Neal were Cherokee.My grandma was Opal Tressie Neal. He said they could not put American Indian on documents back then because they were farmers and would lose their land. Once again thank you so much for responding.
