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 and still with the tribe. It could be possible her mother could have married a settler and moved there. 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.
