Thanks for your response! What's frustrating about my situation is that unless you have their name on an Indian roll no one will believe you (and understandably so). My case is a bit more convincing, I'm afraid, being that there is a photo of my great great grandmother, the allegedly full-blooded Cherokee, dressed in her native garb. All this aside the DNA tests has been great in strengthening the connections made in other respects most notably to the distinguished Blackburn family of Rippon Lodge. I will definitely look into taking the DNA data and loading it to other services to see what they can tell us. I have attached a photograph, not the one I mentioned, but I think it ought to strengthen the folklore that the Quinn's took a liking to the natives in Georgia beginning in the late 18th century. The woman, Mary 'Babe' Quinn, is the sister of the aforementioned great great grandfather (the testers grandfather). Thanks again for your statements it really makes this deal easier to understand.
