My great grandmother, Maud Kilgore, was a full blooded Cherokee squaw.
My great grandfather, Joseph Hall, "took" her from a reservation in Georgia.
They had seven children together; she died during birth of the last child.
My grandfather was one of the eldest, and he had many Cherokee features.
My grandfather married a gal' with a predominantly German heritage.
So, my Dad and his siblings do not look like they have any Cherokee blood.
My Mom is full blooded German, and thus I look like more of a "paleface" than anyone else in my family, but nonetheless, I am proud to have Cherokee DNA, and have always respected their culture.
