Hey John, you know we've been round and round on this research. well, I'm thinking we should remember the things we were told by our grandparents and other elders directly. I've been looking at this Spears family and trying to decide whether I believe that America belongs there along with Willis and John Washington Spears. In looking at it, America is the only one of all of these children who is listed as being born in Arkansas, yet we've found nothing to tell us where in Arkansas. So, I'm remembering the stories I've been told that our Cherokee grandmother was sent ahead with family members to avoid the march. So I'm wondering if she was reported as being born in Arkansas as some sort of protection for her. This still leaves some unanswered questions, but when you look at the Washington County census records, you keep seeing all of these family members living where she lives, and there are the common family names, so I'm believing that this is in fact her family. I don't have an answer or any facts adding Lillie to her name though; does anyone else?
