I am looking for Lucy May Hall born in 1938. I think she was Johns daughter. Any info?

RE: Artherholts
"Great pictures. I see that you made duplicate memorials for Hiram and Maggie Artherholt. You have a lot more information than I do on your memorial so I will delete my Hiram Memorial. I do not manage Maggie's memorial so I cannot delete it. Can you go ahead and link your memorials to Rollins 6430765 and Susan 6430770. You can request to take over management for Maggie then delete one of those memorials. Thank you for sharing so much information. I had the same story for Whitefeather, but you had much more detail."

Thanks, Tom. Thank you for all your work in sharing our family's genealogical heritage (it's a hobby of mine for over 17 yr.s, now). Glad to know that my line wasn't the only line that kept an oral history of "Whitefeather"--however, if anyone needs to prove Native American Heritage in their blood as a direct descendent in order to obtain tribal membership, "Whitefeather" lived & died too long ago for records to include her. The "Dawes" Rolls were made from 1898-1906, & only included the forced-removal natives that made it to Oklahoma & chose to live on tribal lands, & not "assimilate" into the "white culture", as US Citizens. Then, a few years later (1909), the Gion-Miller Rolls were taken for the Eastern Cherokee members that did not remove to Kansas & Oklahoma (Indian Territory). For the Cherokee Tribe, either Eastern Cherokee or "Oklahoma Cherokee", one has to prove direct descendency from a "collateral blood relative" that was listed on either of the 2 rolls which were taken over 50 years after "Maaike" (Dutch for Mary) Nance Hawkins/"Whitefeather" is expected to have died.
I am curious as to what event in our Maggie Harrelson's family line in history could have transpired on: 25th of Feb., 1830 in either Maury Co., or Grainger Co., Tennessee (SAME DAY that Davy Crockett took a resolution to Nashville, Davidson, Co., TN--212 mi.s W. of Grainger Co., TN & 50 mi.s NE of Maury Co., TN--to abolish the US Military Academy at WEst Pt., NY, because he felt that it was public money going to benefit the sons of wealthy men, amongst another situation where Congress was alotting $100,000 to the widow of Naval Ofcr., Stephen Decatur--a man born into abundance & priviledges--the youngest man to rank "Captain" in the HISTORY of the US Navy who died in March of 1820--9 yr.s earlier.). On 25 Feb., 1830, (in, I believe--but need to do further research, Grainger Co., TN) William Harrelson (Rollin William Harrelson's dad) died (or was killed?) along with his 1st-born (Rollins William Harrelson's oldest brother), Caswell C. Harrelson (B: 9 June, 1808-married, but no children were born). Caswell was only 21 yr.s, 9 mo.s of age on 25 Feb., 1830 (some family members list him as dying in Grainger Co., TN, others list Caswell as dying in Maury Co., TN). I wonder if both Caswell & William were killed as a result of an uprising (either Natives, or some kind of government upheavel). Curious, isn't it? (I have done some work on these 2 men, but haven't found--as of July, 2014--any explanation as to the irony of their death dates being on the same day that Davy Crockett introduced to the TN General Assembly his ideals about how gov't money was being handled.)

Thanks, again, for your comments,
