Morning Natanoah is my kin is there information on her and is there any more kin out there

Tabitha Robin Pike

My name is Tabitha Pike. My grandmother was Hazel Fouts Hayes, she married Charles Alexander Hayes, his parents where George Washington Hayes and Elizabeth Hayes. We lived in Turtletown Tennessee, right by the North Carolina Line. My Granny Hayes told me we was related to Morning Natanoha, that she was just Morning and she took on Natanoha once she married.. I’ll have to ask my mother Rita Yvonne Hayes the names of our ancestors, but id love to get together in a email messege and talk family tree and relation history, been looking for my family on that side of my tree. You can email me at [email protected] anytime.. love more info..

It is on my grandfather Charles Hayes that I am related to Morning, I’m also pretty sure I’m related to Jenkins as well. We are from Ducktown, Dogtown, Turtletown, Copperhill and around that area.

I am Scottish on my Dad’s Side and Cherokee on my Mother’s Side, my Mom’s Family is Well Documented by My Sister Charlotte McDowell Baker and I Charles L. McDowell lll, when I was about 32 yrs old I met a Navaho man called Joe Foster he was a very nice guy and we got along together as brothers, Joeseph Fostered Parented Children and taught them all the things they needed to know to be in the World. I told him I was working on my Family;s History and Geneology and he said.” Uhh, you are a “Spirit Stalker” and the name just stuck with me even when I didn’t even realize it had! Years later I discovered that all of Mother’s Kin’s Surnames were on several of the Cherokee Rolls, and found Cousins ,Aunt’s, Uncle’s were on various Rolls but None of the Grandparents were, it was because they had a White person living in the Household and therefore the White person was considered the Head of Household so the weren’t taken away on the Removal although some of my Family went the majority of them did not. I the State of Ga. if you were Cherokee or Creek and didn’t go you had to cover yourself up grow beards, never Dane or Celebrate as a Native American, Act like White People, send your Kids to School or they would come and take your Children away, repeat offenders would be dragged-of and murdered never to be seen again. There wasn’t any talk within the Families about being Native because they feared what they would do to you, these laws were in effect into the 1970’s in Ga. ,S.C. Al.,Tn. This is why a lot of Natives were never on the Rolls, they would have been murdered! This has been a cruel fate of my Families.

As you very well know, the transition of our great country from Native American to its current mixture has many casualties. The injustices continue even today.
My Father was Robert I. Gutierrez. He lived his entire life knowing only a few things about his ancestry. He knew that the family said they were of Cherokee descent, that they came from Arkansas, to Shreveport, and that his grandmother had been separated from the tribe. His grandmother was Molly Garza Martinez (my great grandmother). She told of being sold off of the reservation in Arkansas at age 14 for the debt of a horse. She said her family was very poor and would have been in trouble with the local authorities if she was not given up.
The man who bought her never allowed her to speak anything other than English, he got her pregnant, then several years later, left her. Her daughter’s name Mary Garza, later Mary Garza Gutierrez, then Mary Garza Gutierrez Hammer. Mary married the first time at age 15 and gave birth to my father, Robert I Gutierrez. Robert passed away four years ago at 85 years old. His life was always filled with uncertainty. People equated his dark skin and Spanish sur name, to being Mexican. He always refuted that. He was proud that his heritage was that of a Cherokee Indian, since that was what he had always been told by his family.
After his death, I had a DNA profile completed. Of course, he had been correct. My profile shows 21% Native American and the rest is mixed races.
I am not seeking anything as far as benefits or rights from the Nation, only a feeling of belonging that my father never had. It would be of great comfort to say I have been recognized as a member of the Great Nation. Since there are no records of my great grandmother’s existence, and all of my older relatives have passed away, is there any chance of belonging to the Cherokee Nation?

Morning Nantanoah is my 4th great grandmother. Woodard Fouch (Fours) was my 4th great grandfather. His father Murray Fouts, fathered my (Hazel Fouts Hayes) of turtletown Tennessee, granny’s father Silas Fouts my great grandfather.

That’s how I’m related.. I’ve been trying to expand my tree but can’t find but Morning Nantanoah father’s name Chief Brave Deer Nantanoah (Nantnoah) .. does anyone have Morning’s mother’s name birth year and death year.. I’m at a stand still.

Plus If anyone has Brave Deer birth and death year, place, tribe, location, it would help me out so much..

I am the GGG granddaughter of Morning Fouch Natanoah. I found a Cherokee Nation Seal with her on Geni, with the spelling of her name to be Natanoah, and her father to be Brave Deer Natanoah, and her grandfather to be Chief Brave Deer Natanoah. It says she was full blood cherokee listed on the Drennen Rolls. I am also on FamilySearch. My name is Janet Thomas, my father is Silas Thomas Jr., my grandfather Silas Thomas, my Great grandfather Malen Milton Quillen, my GG grandmother was Mary “Viney or Vina” Fouch If you would like to see our tree, go to FamilySearch. Goodluck with your family tree.

My father’s mother was Cherokee. Her name was Eva Ollie. My father’s father was Blackfoot and Scottish. He was a Southerland. I know grandma Eva was from north Carolina and grandpa was from POwder SPrings in Tennessee. My mother is Cherokee, CHicksaw (did I spell that right?), Irish and Dutch. Quite a mix. My mother has mentioned the name Jenkins who was over 7 feet tall. That’s about all I know. I wish I knew more about my heritage. How do I connect with my people, so I can know who I am?


This is a good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.
Short but very precise info… Many thanks for sharing this one.
A must read post!
