hello…i just found this great bunch of folks today and thot i’d better join right up with ya’ll….i’ve been looking for my g-g-granma MARY BUCK, who had a son named EMANUEL FISHER….she had other children named BUCK, also, who were younger, so i am assuming her maiden name was FISHER, or she was married to a FISHER….MARYclaimed to be N.A., but was never proven, however, family lore and lifestyles lead me to think they probably were….she showed up in mcminn co tenn. @ 1850 with 3 children…says she is from N.C….is on census in 1860-70-80….dau. mary e. marries … ensley……son JOHN C. R. MARRIES TALITHA WILLIAMS, RUNS SAWMILL, IS IN ARMY, DRAWS PENSION…..SON EMANUEL FISHER IS IN ARMY IN CIVIL WAR, CAPTURED, IN CONCENTRATION CAMP IN VICKSBURG, RELEASED, KILLED IN EXPLOSION ON STEAMBOAT SULTANA GOING HOME….JOHN IS MY LINE…..i’m pretty sure TALITHA’s family was N.A., because my dad told me that she lived with his family when he was a small boy, and the indians used to come from the reservation to visit her…he said they wore their feathers and were mean !!!!!….also they made applications to the guion miller rolls, so they must have thot they were N.A…..this is all taking place in north ga. and south tenn..and west carolinas, btw….can anyone help with this ???
