Guess Family of Kentucky

Journal by CherokeeBeauty

I am of the Guess family in Kentucky. My grandmother's name was Ruth Ophelia Guess. My name is LeAnn, And i am researching my family history. So far i have found Cherokee indian desent, irish desent, and Mexican desent. However i am still researching the Cherokee desent, Looking for documents to further proove what i have found.
Also i have seen a document stating that John Guess is on the Muster rolls, and particapated in the 1707 Marine "War of Spanish Succession, and i am looking into that as well.
