I Need help.
I am trying to trace my great grandmother Susan Lewis b: & her parents/siblings.
I believe the information of Susan's father's name might be wrong. It showed as
Ahab Lewis on Susan's death certificate. also nobody ever heard of Salisky,
Oklahoma. I believe she was born & raised in an area close the Benton Co.,
Arkansas area. She also was supposed to be a 1/2 blood Cherokee indian, her
mother (no known name) a full blood Cherokee. (not documented) she had all the
indian characteristics, high cheek bones, hair & coloring.
Any information or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Notes for BENJAMIN FRANKLIN GARRETT:
Only census I find of Benjamin & Susan Garrett in Arkansas
is the 1920 - Gentry, Ark. No. 326 pg. 13B.
Benjamin Garrett 48 Farmer Ga. NC.
Susan 44 Tx. Tx.
All children born in Arkansas
It also list Benjamin as born in Either Georgia or North Carolina.
I find this interesting.
Benjamin should have known where he was born.
Susan should have known where she was born.
