Larry: There is a Cherokee Indian in the Stobaugh, but later down than Martha. Martha Stobaugh and her brother, George Washington Stobaugh's mother, Margaret Ann Brinkley Stobaugh had cousins who were descended from the Cherokee Indian, Rebecca Jackson who was married to Nathan Williams. Margaret Brinkley's mother, Martha Ann Hill had been married to Leroy P. Williams (son of Nathan and Rebecca). They had I think five children before Leroy P. died. Martha then married B.B. Brinkley. They had another five children (who were both cousins and step-brothers and sisters of the Williams kids). One of these was Margaret.
What gets even more confusing is that one of Leroy P.s brothers, John Littleton Williams married Mary Sidney Hill )sister to Martha Hill). One of his sons, Jackson Griffith, had a daughter, Betty Williams who married and had a daughter named Etta Sheridan. Etta later married Orville Stobaugh, a son of George W.Stobaugh and Margaret Brinkley.
This Etta and Orville were my parents-in-law.
If you would like my file on these lines, please email and I will forward them to you. They are quite lengthy, so I do not want to send you unneeded files.
Thanks for your posting.
