I am researching my husbands Johnson/Halbert/Sanders lineage and in particular the Native American lineage. My husbands grandmother, Beulah (Johnson)Cope, said she was Cherokee. She was born in Missouri. I know she live in Quapaw, OK for a bit before the family moved to Nevada.
Her parents were Frank (a twin) Johnson and Della (Halbert)Johnson. Frank was born in Arkansas and I believe Della was born in Missouri. Della's parents are Jefferson B. Halbert and Sophrona (Sanders) Halbert. Both Jefferson and Sophrona were born in Missouri. I would appreciate any information on Sophrona's parents and native american history in particular.
