Good morning,
I havent posted in awhile but Im not sure what pictures you were talking about. I have a few of dad but thats about it. I have no real idea about anything regarding dads family. It all started when my daughter started asking me about dads native american heritage regarding college and tuition stuff. I told her I knew we have some cherokee but I have no clue who or how much.. lol... so it got me started looking and I ran into a block with Molly. Im assuming from the census records Thermon was our grandfather and Molly was our grandmother but I have nothing else. Any help you could provide me would be awesome.

Good Morning back to you. I can share this much with you. Our generation is considered to be half. This is because Grandma was a full Delaware descent and asorbed by the Cherokee result of the 1838 treaty. Thus our children are 1/4 Cherokee. I have been working on our tree for sometime and have come to some walls. I have be in contact with 3 of our cousins in Ohio though.They don't have any pictures though. I have also found a friend of Maxine's that shared some stories while they were growing up. I guess Grandpa was the biscuit maker. Grandma was blind in her 40s. you can go to Grave finders search my name or put in the grandparents name and a photo of their cemetery and gravemarker is posted. It took me a long time to find where they were buried...Janis the friend told me. Ruth and Ruby both had cleft palates. I know the dentist has always commented on how high mine is. If you would be so kind and scan in your photos of Dad I would be appreciative because I don't have any.
Your Sister

So I would be considered Half? wow.. I had no idea. Do you have any documentation? I think my daughter can get some half way decent college assistance being 1/4. If I can come up with some documentation or do you have Mollys ddate of birth and all that I can try to look it up. I really appreciate your help here. Send me your email and Ill scan in what pics I have of dad in them and send them to you. I dont have many but I have one of Greg, Dad and I that I think is a really good on of him.
