Looking to find my Creek Indian roots. Family story is that My Grandmother Roen, Roena, or Rhuena Roberson was Creek Indian and lived in Arkansas around 1850-1860. Where she met and married My Grandfather Benjamin Smith of Franklin co N.C. thier union produced my grandfather John Roberson Smith. Can anyone please help me verify this? I have confirmed from DNA that I am part Native American, and this is the only lead I have in finding my poeple.
