Received this in 1998 from : voyles@conwaycorp.net. "From Cherokee
By Blood, Record of Eastern Cherokee Ancestry in US court of Claims
1906-1910 by Jerry Wright Jordan. Heritage Book Vol. #8.
Mary E. Keys, Murraysville, GA
Rejection.  Proof of genuine connection with the Eastern Cherokee
insufficient.  It appears that no ancestor was a party to the
treaties of 1835-36 or 1846.  No ancestor was ever enrolled.
Misc. test. page 996.
"My name is Mary C. Keys and I reside at Murraysville, GA. I was
born in Cherokee Co., NC in 1846.  I claim through my mother,
Malinda Voils, whose father was James Voils was a full-blooded
Cherokee Indian.  My mother was born in Hall Co., GA about 1811.
My grandfather, James Voils was born in the eastern section of
Tennessee, near the NC line.  My mother was born and raised among
the Cherokee Indians and could speak the Cherokee language.  The
Indians often visited our homeplace and my mother was recognized by
them as a Cherokee Indian.  I can remember my grandfather very well
and he was always talking about his people, who he claimed were
Cherokee people.  My grandfather often told me about the time the
Indians left this country and said he wouldn't go because my
grandmother, who was a white woman, wouldn't let him.  My
grandfather had two brothers, James Voils and Jehu Voils.  I have
cousins by the name of Voils who are descendants of James Voils and
Jehu Voils and the last I heard of them they lived in Arkansas.  I had two brothers,
namely, James Stumans and George Stumans. My mother had several
brothers, namely, James Voils, Samuel Voils, Washington Voils and
Mary Voils. My mother's brothers all went west.  My grandfather
moved to Cherokee Co., NC with his people and lived there all his
life.  I do not know whether he was enrolled or not, and
grandfather would often go off with the Indians and stay several
months and then return.  He was always taken as Indian because his
looks and appearance indicated that he was an Indian.
