Bio and Links
Bio Photo Much to the chagrin of my family I experience the "joy of discovery" tromping around in old cemeteries. I live right in the middle of Oklahoma and am still just discovering the wealth of resources that are here. I am a retired librarian, a grandfather, a great grandfather, an Army brat, a fairly good photographer, and a rather undisciplined genealogist.

Help
My great grandmother Bessie Carter Martin has a Seal of the Cherokee Nation on her grave. In assuming it's bc she is Cherokee Indian, but I can't find her on the rolls. Is she Cherokee or not? I'm a grade below "amateur genealogist" so, any guidance on this matter would be more than appreciated!!
You can email me at emcdowell7313@yahoo.com
Thanks, Em Mc

Good Evening Mr. Cheek,

You posted a photo of Dicey Mitchell Ball on her Memorial. By chance do you know who her parents are? I know you didn't create her Memorial but thought since you have a photo, you might know.

I thank you in advance.

Photo of Columbia Francis Cheek
Mr. Cheek,

I'm doing some research on your Cheek Family for the Dunwoody Preservation Trust. We have a tree of the Founders and residents of Dunwoody in Family Tree maker. I discovered the photo you posted of Columbia on her FG Memorial along with photos of Samuel, and Martha Ann. May I post these in our Family Tree Maker software for them along with the dates of birth and death you posted? I figure you know the facts of your Cheek family.

Last, where is Bunyan Cheek buried? I can't find him.

I thank you in advance Sir.
