does anyone out there have any information on any indian families that lived in perry county during the 1800's all the way up till now ...any information however small would be very helpful and accepted.....jamie lewis
if you need information on The Brock line I may be of assistance to anyone. I am also researching the Elijah And Martha Mullins family, the Ewens Nataniel Richardson and Martha Mullins family. The Stephen Adams Family, The William Couch Family. So you have you any questions on this just email me maybe we can help each other.
I have a great aunt wh actually raised my grandmother who was married to a full blooded cherokee indian they tell me. They called him Grey Hill and was married to a Nellie Carns. We think that his first name could actually start with a C because on the adoption papers for my grandmother he was named as C.G. Hill. My uncle said that they called him grey but that wasn't his true first name. If anyone knows of them, the info would be greatly appreciated. They had one daughter Ruby but she died a fews years back and didn't leave any info on her family.
My mother's father's grandmother was Cherokee. Her name was Surilda Hicks, born in Knott Co. KY on 1/6/1868, died in Hazard on 11/28/1943. She married John Wilson McDaniel. Her mother and father were both Cherokee, they were Clayborne Hicks, born 1831 in Virginia, died in 1891 in Knott Co. KY and Francis "Frankie" Perry born 1833 in North Carolina died 7/25/1917 in Knott Co. KY

I would love to find out more about my Cherokee backround. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of info. My dad was from Hazard in Perry County. His name was Eugene Tyree and his dad was Henry Tyree. He had 2 sisters, Louise & Clemmie, and 2 brothers, Robert & William. My grandfather ran a small grocery store. THe only other names that I can connect is "Granny" Wells, Susan Tyree, and Susan (?) Strong. I believe the Cherokee link is in the Wells or the Strong family. If anyone has any info please email me.
My grandmother was half cherokee. Her name was Katherine Watkins. Her mother was full Cherokee. Why is it so hard to find info on these families. Any suggestions?
Another story_ I remeber my mother talking about living in a hardburly coal camp. Joann Barnett. Her and her siblings would go to these flat rocks in the woods and play. Anyone no of any flat rocks? She said that there was indian writtings and pictures on them. One day Indian jumped out from the trees and screamed at them. this would have been in the early 1940's. They did not hurt them just scared them. My uncle was so scared he never spoke of it. Hillard Barnett. My mother told her boss about this story and he said it was not unusual for indians to come back to these areas during the world war. I would love to know where these rocks were. I will ask her which coal camp it was.
