Hello Jacquie,

I have recently found out that I am a Merriman-Eslick descendant. My great grandmother was Myrtle Eslick and my grandmother was Daisy Standridge (Maiden name Edwards and she was the youngest daughter of Myrtle). We are looking into finding out proof of indian heritage. We all grew up hearing that we were Cherokee, but I have seen on the site that it could be Creek or Apache. I'm so confused. Thanks for any help!
