Well, you may be having difficulty because Mvskoke/Creek didn’t exactly exist in those terms during the 1700’s nor would it be likely for one from this tribe to have been born in NC. Just a tip I have learned the hard way, follow the trail of documents rather than “Member Trees” especially ones with a lot of info and little documentation. All that aside, there exists very little written proof regarding personal Native American lineage that far back.
