Surnames: Adkins, Atkins,Tiller, Davis
My mother Marion Norman Atkins from Richmond VA the daughter of Norman Murdock Atkins told us that we are Cherokee Indian. A lot of my relatives are from Mangohick VA. I may be Chickahominy also, from my father's side Harry L. Atkins. Both sides had their names changed from "ADKINS to ATKINS" due to discrimination against Native Americans. If anyone has any info on this please contact me here.

I was just informed today that there is Cherokee in my blood somewhere as well- it seems my great great grandmother Letha Atkins always said she had no siblings - and that her mother Elizabeth Edwards was 1/2 Cherokee. Her Father was Aaron Atkins and he evidently was married to 4 women before polygamy was outlawed, including an Elizabeth - but I can't find anything on her. The only "Letha" I find is a TELITHA HORTON who is one year old in 1870 and listed in the household with Aaron Atkins and his wife Nancy - maiden name Horton. By 1880 Telitha's last name is Atkins~ and she marries James William Moore when she is like 14 or something. She has several siblings that I've no doubt she knew about but was embarrassed about given the climate on polygamy during those years- but I wonder if Aaron Adkins was the source of her native blood- or if it was her mother - and if Elizabeth really was her mother or if Nancy Horton was... Any ideas? Looks like My Adkins was last in VA in 1880- but back and forth between Georgia, Missouri, Arkansas...

I have been looking for the same thing. have you checked the website with the rolls?

My problem is find my great grandmothers parents names. it is time consuming. The Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah Oklahoma has DNA testing too.

Hope this helps!

I live very near Cherokee Nation HQ in Tahlequah, they don not do DNA testing. The y do have a Heritage Center, where you can pay $20 for the start of assistance in you genealogical search. I know this bc I went there recently, but the Heritage Center was closed the day I went. You can call Cherokee Nation HQ at 918-543-5000 to confirm this.
