Normally, I don't start a thread promoting a hub I have written or even post a link to my hub unless it is in direct relation to the topic. However, I just finished a hub that has probably been the hardest (and now the one I am most proud of) of all my 73 hubs. It was an emotional creation for me and I just felt the need to share it with my hubber family. HP, if this is spamming the forum, I do apologize and will understand if you delete this post. I just decided to take the chance.
The video is especially emotional to me and whoever created it did a fabulous job!
I am going to go check it out now... Me and my sisters are Cherokee Indian, but not quite enough... lol
Thanks, Kathryn. It was a very emotional hub to write.
Seriously, it has inspired me to know more about my own heritage, with the Cherokee that runs through my blood. It may explain a lot! LOL
I hope to get some tome today to start on another hub on this topic. I think I will do sort of a series of hubs about certain people and events so that I can more thoroughly cover each one. I have become really fascinated by this heritage and I think it is worth more digging. Thanks so much for your support! You are a gem!
That sounds like such a great plan. I will look forward to you hubs.
Bonnie, I really liked your Cherokee hub. I also have Cherokee in my family tree.
And though I wear a shirt and tie...
I’m still a redman deep inside...
Thank you for this (re)post. Wouldn't have thought to look for it. Looking forward to more!
I am part Cherokee Indian! I'm going to go read it right now! Thanks Bonnie!
I'm sorry Bonnie, the hub has great information, but I want to point this out:

I stopped about halfway through the hub. While I'm glad that the information is all in one place, I'm sad to see it, well, a lot of it is word for word.
I'm going to go back to hiding in my hole now.
LOL This is wierd! Out of all these sites you listed, I only got any info from the hub from 1 of them. Never even seen the other 3. Guess that kinda proves the point I was making about changing the facts if you paraphrase too much LOL. But I may check these out for future reference! Thanks!
Thanks everyone for all your nice comments. It really means a lot.
Gamer, I have information there from many different sites and, while I tried to paraphrase as much as possible, much of the information is kind of hard to get put together without doing some as word for word. If I change too much of the wording in these, the facts themselves could get changed and I didn't want to do that. I did the best I could on the paraphrasing with all of the info I weeded through. Sorry.
There is a branch of my family that is descended from the Cherokees. The story goes like this: My gggg grandfather's brother became an indian agent in the 93rd district of the Carolina Province (Now North and South Carolina). There, he met and fell in love with a Cherokee maiden, Coo-ta-yah, and married her. This was in the 1700's, or early 1800's, mind you. I can't remember exact dates, but I'll look it up.
Anyway, our family name was Wilkinson, but his branch suddenly changed to Wilkerson. All genealogical accounts in the "respectable" sources at the time, and thereafter, said he went to the 93rd district and was never heard from again. I can only imagine what really happened, but look at the times. This man was from an aristocratic English family. His brother married the daughter of one of the Lord's Proprietors. I'm sure that it was not accepted well by his family when he married a Native American.
It took some digging, but I finally found that branch, and reunited the two branches of the family after nearly over 100 years. I've met some of my Cherokee relatives online, but never in person. Who knows, maybe you're one of them!
My gggg uncle, Coo-ta-ya's first husband died, and then it seems, she married one of his sons by his first marriage. It's a very confusing family line, so I'll really have to look it back up, but I am IMMENSELY proud of it, and only wish it was my branch of the family.
