My great great grandfather was Alford Wesley WRIGHT born 30 Apr 1838 died after 1924 in Cocke Co., TN. He told the family his (Alfords) Grandmother was an Indian named Chaney. He could remember going with her to milk the cows when snow was on the ground. She did not wear shoes and took her bare feet and would break the ice. He said the hide on her feet was thick. He passed along many wonderful stories about her we have written down. My great Uncle told me she was born "down around the Fort Loudon area of Tennessee." We thought she was a Yuchi Indian but we have no proof of it. Has anyone else heard the story about her being born around Fort Loudon or if she could be a Yuchi Indian? Great Great Grandfather Alford was quite a talker as was many of his descendents and loved to pass along stories. I have tried to record as many of them as possible. Would like to hear other stories about Grandmother Chaney. Thank You Patty

I am a beginner in genealogy. My great great great grandfather was Isaac Wright born 1777. He was married to an Indian by the name of Chaney. They lived in Tennessee and North Carolina. I don't know too much more than that right now as like I said I'm just beginning to research my ancestry.

Do you have any information as to Isaac's father and mother were? Or even better, who his brothers and sisters were? I have been trying to trace the tree of John Wright born about 1790 in TN and was curious if your tree would fit into mine.

Thanks.

In Tennessee Bible Records I found on Ancestry. There was an Isaac Wright, wife Rebecca and daughter Rebecca. No other infomation on them. Could this be your Isaac? If so where in TN did they live?
