About: Most interested in finding long lost cousins who may have info on families other than what I have. Extremely interested in native american ancestry (predominantly Cherokee...but will accept others) from the areas of GA,TN and AR. Have connected cousins who have contacted me who are related closer than I.

Researching: Ellis, Griffin, Smith, Pittman, Jennings, Mitchell, Rountree, Hickman, Shaver, Sanders, Pennington, Voss, Tuttle, Proctor, Looney, Luna, Sikes, Schirmer, Begley, Nield

Jessie's Photos

This is a picture of Mary Ann Pollyann Sanders (Hogan). She married John L Sanders(some say he is actually John Walkingstick...this is unproven)...and had Amanda Carline Sanders who was Mary Adeline Ellis's mothers. She was the daughter of Anthony Hogan and Jenny Amy Luna. The Luna/Looney name is common in Cherokee history.

This is Franklin Pierce, grandson of Charlotte Mitchell Voss and Robert James Voss. He carries the native characteristics seen in his grandmother Charlotte and his mother's family the Penningtons(look for this surname info)...and his wife gets her's from her mother's family the Sanders and Lunas(Looney).

These are pictures of Robert James Voss and his wife Charlotte Mitchell...who was Cherokee and according to 'oral history' was adopted by the Mitchell family in 1814 along with her older brother.
