I am looking for information about the Nipper side of our family. I have heard all my life that I have Cherokee via my grandmother's line and I would like to verify that.
My Grandmother was Gussie Louise Benton (Stewart) who was daughter of Artie Stewart (abt. 1886)who was daughter of (and this is where I have hit a brick wall) Elizabeth Nipper and George Rushin (or rushen, rushing).
Apparently, Elizabeth Nipper was born in TN and is supposedly full blooded Cherokee.
I just cannot find any records of an Elizabeth Nipper marrying a George who together produced an Artie...
Can anyone else confirm or shed some more information on this?
