Journal by Shadrach4445

Looking to find Choate relatives in Ky,with possible ties to the Cherokee of Ky abt 1770/1800. My GGGmother was Eleanor Choate/Shote
brn abt 1800 KY,d,abt 1870 Grundy Co TN. Eleanor left Ky after 1800, and was found in IT of TN abt 1818 where she married GGGfather William B Seitz brn abt 1800 Lincoln Co NC. Eleanor was believed to be full blood Cherokee from the Long Hair Clan.
I know there has to be other Choate descendants who stii live in or around KY. I am in the process of putting a Family Tree together.

Just found out that My GGfather's real name may have been Lewallyn Sweden/Sweeten in Russell/Adair Co's of KY abt 1860,and was changed to Alan/Allen Bond when he joined the Army,as his mother was a Anna Bond brn KY.

sounds like we are cousins thomas. my dad was clifton ray choate, from monticello, who was the son of frank and elsie. i also had heard, from my dad and his sister lucy, the story of an ancester being raped by a cherokee indian which produced a son(although i could be mistaken). this is where my memory fails...i cant remember how far back that goes nor names. i was wondering myself how to track any and all information i could on this lineage. sadly my dad and aunt lucy have passed and im not close enough to any other family members on this side who can answer any questions. if you find anymore info on it i would love to hear it!
