Sherilynn Tuck
Query: Hello! My husband is Cherokee and belongs to the Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah. I do not have a CDIB and do not think I ever will because I am having a hard time proving my Indian heritage. Do you know if the Cherokee Nation allows member's spouses to belong to the tribe? I have heard some things about "adopted citizen" but that may have been an old practice. Can anyone help answer my question? Unfortunately, when you join, there doesn't seem to be a guidebook of sorts given! When you weren't raised in it, it is hard to figure it all out.

Query: I have noticed that no one seems to know much about our family line, but hoping someone WILL know if there is any Native American Blood in the line. My husband and his one sister say there is, possible Cherokee or Chocktaw, but we do not know which, or from whom. Any help with this is most appreicated. This pertains to my our family starting with Franklin Robert Oglesby B- 29, Dec 1898 in Tennessee. Died- 2, July, 1982 Ca. He was married to Beatris/Beatrice Palmer. She was born 2, Nov 1902 Okla and died- 24, February 1985 Ca. Her father was George Palmer Born 1875 and her Mother was Sarah ( Unknown ) born- 1909. The family is thinking the Native American either comes form the Oglesby Line or the Palmer Line or both, but we are hitting a brick wall, and no where to turn.
