I am researching the following surnames in my lineage, and that of my husband's lineage: Holland, Tyner, Mills, Longbotham, Terrell, Foster, Hinesley, Files, Larremore, Hulcy, Wells, Beebe, Leeper (from Norway), Larson, Griffith, and other names farther back in the charts as I happen across info.
I am especially interested in Holland, Tyner, Mills, Terrell and Hulcy lineage at the moment.
I have Cherokee and Chickasaw in my ancestry. On my Father's maternal line we are descended through Dempsey Tyner, through his son Jesse Tyner (Cherokee) and Jesse's wife Elizabeth Mitchel (Chickasaw). On my Father's paternal line we are descended through Benjamin Bryant Holland (Cherokee). We working on our application to the Cherokee nation for recognition to honor our ancestors.
I live in Newberg, Oregon. If you have photo requests, please limit them to Newberg only, as I don't have a lot of time to travel out of town unless critically neccessary (and I don't know where any other cemetaries are located). My children participate in the Memorial Day flag-placing exercises for veterans every year, so I visit 2-3 cemetaries on Memorial Day each year, and do have a few photos from those (and can get more) already.
I am hopeful that this resource will be helpful in our search for more accurate information and documentation. Thank you in advance for your help!
God bless you,
