Linda Darlene Bowers

I have been told by family members, my great great great grandmother “Ava Maria” possibly with the name “Day” and last name “Banks.” She was a survivor of Trails of Tears. She was born in 1825 in Chesterfield, South Carolina. She married Brett Grubbs, they lived and died in Louisville, Alabama. I have great grandmother on my mother s side, whom I was told was also a survivor of Trails of Tears. Her name was Mary possibly Malacia. I have the DNA with ancestry and it showed no native American. But I was told I need the raw DNA results

I believe he was the son of David and Martha Branch. His daughter was Lula Mae Branch ( Yount )( my grandmother ), born 9-2-1899, possibly in Burke County, NC. She died 2-17-1936, in Hickory, NC. My mother was Helen Ruth Yount ( Carter ), born 12-30-1929, in Hickory, NC. She died 10-20-2009, in Paris, Tn.
