Does anyone have knowledge of an Indian connection to David Stokes, Henry Stokes or Rebecca Lloyd Stokes. Thom Forsyth

Thom,
I've done extensive research on this line and I have not found any concrete connection to any Native Americans other than the unidentified "Cherokee Grandmother" which seems unlikely since they did't live around the Cherokees.

Gerald, thanks for your reply. My gggrandmother was Rebecca Stokes, wife of John Mack Lloyd.
There are several Stokes from Georgia listed on the Guion-Miller Rolls as applying for enrollment in the Eastern Band Cherokee Tribe. Do you have any information on either of the following: Lewis F., Martha E., Mary Elizabeth, or Virgie M. Stokes. Any help would be appreciated. Thom

Thom;
I will need a little more information to be sure that I am giving you the right people. Can you tell me the year of the application to the Cherokee roles? Also any other information. Were they accepted? Where did they apply?
After a quick look, and I do mean quick, here is what I have come up with.

A Daughter of Henry Stokes, your gggggrandfather and father of Rebecca Stokes Lloyd was named Mary Elizabeth. Mary E. Stokes married William B. Green in Camden County Ga. One of her daughters was also named Mary Elizabeth b. 1851

There is a Vergie Stokes b. 1924 d. 1975 who was the daughter of Niram Gentry Stokes who was the son of Henry Wesley Stokes and Martha Dixon Stokes, who was in turn a son of Lewis A. Stokes and his wife Joanna, and who was in turn the son of our g-grandfather Henry.

I am certain there is a Lewis F. in there somewhere and possibly a Marhta E. The names sound really familiar.

Gerald, The Guion Miller Rolls was a registry of persons applying for acceptance into the Eastern Band Cherokee Tribe. I don't know if either of these persons were admitted. The roll was taken 1909-1910 and the names I provided from the rolls were listed as being from Georgia. Thom

Question.... I am a descendant of Mary E. Stokes who married Eli D. Williams of Dooly/Pulaski counties in GA. Eli and Mary had her mother living with them in the 1850 Dooly Co. Census, and her name is Jane. AND on top of that, Eli and Mary named their first son Henry. So, I guess I am thinking that I found my family, but am confused because you are saying that Mary E., daughter of Henry and Jane, married William B. Green. HELP!! I'm trying to sort this all out.

Yours is probably a different Mary E. Stokes, Henry had 10 brothers and there were some other Stokes' from the same area that moved into central Gerogia about the same time that my Henry moved into North Fla. and South Ga. I'll check some and get back to you. But more than likely this is a different person. It gets confusing doesn't it? Have you tried to check on a Young Stokes? He moved through central Georgia in that time. Just be glad you aren't researching a Sylvanus Stokes, there were quite a few of them.
