We may have a common ancester. My gggrandfather was from Wake county NC. His name was Berry Thomas Massey. His family moved to Henry county Ga just south of Atlanta. Then after the civil war my g grandfather went to Texas in 1878. He had an Cherokee Indian wife. I suspect that alot of my ancestors took Indian wifes. My g grandmother was from Piegion Forge Tenn. In the 1940s my grandfather went to visit some relatives on the reservation in Ok. I wish I knew that story. By the way my ggrandfather and grandfather were both named William

Surnames: Massey, Wolfe, Lovette
I haven't been able to substantiate the Cherokee, but was told my father's grandmother was born on a Cherokee reservation in Arkansas. Her name was Katie Lovette, and I believe she was my Grandfather's mother. He was Bruce Angelo Massey, father is Robert D. Massey and one of my brothers is also Ray Massey. Grandfather born in Montreal, Father, Uncles & Aunt born in W.Va and Indiana. Grandmother was Margaret Wolfe Massey of W.Va., and possibly this was her mother. I've run into dead ends, and no relatives left to add more clues.

There are striking Indian looks in my Dad, & his brother Charles - lean, dark, high cheekbones, but both other brothers, George & Bruce and aunt Helen were very broad faced and florid, with blond/reddish hair.

Surnames: Massey/Kidd/Adams - Chelsea, OK
My maternal grandmother was Blance Kidd (Cherokee Roll #32744). She was the last of our family to receive subsidies from the sale of the Cherokee land. Her mom, Julia Adams, was a full-blood Cherokee. Julia's husband, Felix Kidd, was 1/16 Cherokee (Nation Roll #32741).

There are several full-blood Cherokees on both the Adams and Kidd side, and that blood was mixed with the Masseys when Earl married Blanche (Blanchia Kidd).

My mom (Earlena Massey Ridgeway) and all three of us kids have Cherokee Nation cards when the rolls were opened up several years ago...first time since 1906.

Hope this helps...will have my Gencom file uploaded soon.

I was told my whole life that I was Cherokee, but there was never any definitive proof provided. We have native american features in a number of areas. It has carried through to my children and grandchildren. but I have no family connections, pictures identified to me as a child as indian relatives were gone by the time my parents died. I would just like to be able to confirm my identity.
Father: Alphus Massey b, 4-1-1917, Pendleton S, Carolona
his father: Walter Daniel Massey
his mother: Sallie Rochester Massey b:1899 in S. Carolina, d: 1970 in Georgia
My father grew up in Thomaston, Ga. My grandfather was foreman of the cotton mill.

Any one with any information, please contact me,

Ray,

My ancestor is Anna Massee who was married to John H Vincent. I am told that she could have had indian blood. She was born in Virginia and married in Tennessee in 1819. Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
