Looking for chief Joseph of Cherokee Nation
Catherine daughter of Chief Joseph of Cherokee Nation b 1780 in Virginia. d 6 Aug 1858 in Macon Co., TN. She married Charles Marsh b 1764in North Carolina, d 11 Oct 1859 in Macon Co., TN. S/o Robert Marsh b 1724 d 1809 in Chatham Co., North Carolina. S/O James Marsh b 1688 in Plainfield, CT.[This information about who Robert's father was seems to be controversial]According to DNA testing the CT. MARSH branch does don't match the DNA findings for the TN, & NC marsh branch. After much research I find, James Marsh b 1688 in CT., is the father of Robert Marsh who was born in NC.From records I have seen, James born in CT. but all his children born in NC. How can DNA records show we are not descendants of James? I am so confused to say the least. Can anyone help me?
thanking you in advance.
