Would anyone know anything about the Baker clan of Cherokee indians that lived in Marion co and Fayette co Al in the 1800's. Thanks

Were there any Smith's living near them? My husband's family was from that area and also had cherokee blood?

I don't know of any specific Indian tribes in the area but yesterday I was looking through microfilm of the newspaper The Marion County Republican (I think it was) and found mention of Indians camped at the creek north of town. This was January 1909. It said this was the first time many of the citizens had seen Indians so I assumed there hadn't been any nearby.

Those indians that were there I believe were part of a medicine show.I have been looking for this story for a while.My family told me my grandmother used to go into town and talk to the indians in their language.Just a thought here.
