My paternal grandmother was born around 1886 in Christian County, KY. Her daughter (my Dad's sister) said that one of grandmother's parents was born in Hopkinsville, KY during the two day layover of the Cherokees on the Little River here in Hopkinsville. After the birth the mother was moved on along with the rest of the Indians and the baby (one of my great grandparents) was given to a black family to raise. We have a Trail of Tears Park here and are on the National Historic Trail of Tears route. Two Chiefs who died here during the layover are buried here with a monument. My Dad was my grandmothers last ( of ten.) child, so grandmother died in 1978, before I had any thought of asking her personally about her parents. Geneolgy was not so much of a thing forty and fifty years ago. I presently live in the last remaining family homes here, about 2 miles from the actual site of the layover.
