You mis-spelled "Indian." Minerva is my great, great, great, grand mother. She looks Indian in my picture of her. My grand mother told my aunts before she died that she was part Cherokee Indian. Minerva was born in the area where it was old Cherokee Nation in East Tennessee. The Trail of Tears was in 1838 and ended in 1839.

Everyone kept saying that my sister and my mother looked Indian. I really wondered so I started tracing the family tree. I can't find anything on paper that she was Indian but she sure looked it in her picture. I am Darlene Kunis.

Minerva is the sister of my 2nd gr-grandmother, Candace Matlock Selvidge. I too haven't been able to document Indian heritage.

My great grandmother is Minerva (Minnie) Wallace Matlock. Her son, Clarence, always told me his Mother was full-blooded Cherokee. Her photos reveal black hair, dark brown eyes, and dark skin. Her features are that of an Indian. We probably are not talking about the same Minerva---however, thought I might pass it along.

The Minerva Matlock that you were referring to born in 1814 was the aunt to my Minerva Matlock. The older one was the sister to James Jason Matlock, Jr. My Minerva is the younger one. Which parent of the older Minerva was Chickasaw? Most of the Chickasaws were in Mississippi and parts of Alabama. Are the Matlock's Indian or the Lynches were Chickasaw? My grandma said we were part Cherokee.

I am curious about the Moore Matlock (son of Obe in your first generation.) Do you know how he got his first name? I am descended from Moore Matlock Sr. (1730-1812) of Roane Co TN and his wife Emily Jane Powell, and also from their son Moore Matlock (c. 1760-1830) of Overton Co TN and his first wife Susan Smith. Any relation?

I have suspected that your Moore Matlock was his namesake but no proof.
