I am related to a Henry Smith born 1821, Cape May County, New Jersey. He married Sarah Miller Cartwright in Pleasant Plains, Illinois. I don't have any information on his parents though. I don't know what you mean by native american smith's in NJ. Please explain.

Could be I have sone. A Mollie m a John Smith and had Nellie Smith. They all have some degree of Indian, but don't know too much yet. Nellie and Mollie are from Smith Mills, Henderson County, KY. John Smith killed a white man and either disappeared or changed his name. Nellie only remembers being very very young and calling him Don Don, because she could not speak clear. But apparently daddy couldn't either. Supposedly he was full.

What makes you think if there could be indian? For us it is that we have her stories plus she looks totally indian in her pictures. Plus they settled into an area where indians traveled on the trail of tears.

Your best bet is to talk to whomever you can and then start collecting birth and death records and finding them on the census. Look for old letters, stories, whatever.

Well don't think any are mine. But sounds like that could be some from the Trail of Tears. You may try looking at the Dawes index at Nara website or in Try collecting the death records or cemetary records and birth certificates and look at the census'. Start from now back. The name sounds familiar so if I run into it again I will post it for ya here.

My Great-Great Grandparents, John Smith b. 1813 and Judy Potts b. 1819 had Native Blood. John Smith was born in Kentucky and Judy Potts was born in Indiana. I do not know, as yet, where their family originated from.

Also my Great-Great Grandfather Samuel H. Scott b. 1843 in Rising Sun, Indiana (part of Ohio up until 1801) had native blood.

I believe they were both Cherokee. What degree, I do not know.

If you would like to email me:
