I need help with finding info on my great grand mother. Jane Martelia (Tillie)Harper-Brewer-Colwell/Caldwell. She was born about 1890 in Jackson, Breathitt County and it would have been Virginia then I believe instead of Kentucky. So I'm having difficulty with research. Her father was Tom Harper and her mother died when she was born or when she was very young. All I can find is a census from 1900 with Tom, Mary E., Coy, Martelia, Martilia(mispelled) and Harper/Hopper (mispelled). I'd like to find birth certificate and her mother and fathers name. Her parents were Cherokee/Blackfoot Indians. I'd also like to find them on Dawes Roll. Thanks in advance. I've researched for 6 years, brick wall.
Thank you for entering a message.
