Hello,

I'm from this linage. The Indian records state that Betsey Taylor was 1/4th Choctaw Indian. That "John Scarborough was married in Perry County, Alabama, on January 22, 1845, to Laurena S. Nelms. He was the son of James Scarborough, who married on Betsey Taylor, a daughter of a woman commonly called among white people as "Little Grannie Taylor, " whose Indian name was Shanka, who was living at the date of the treaty of 1830 on Tombigbee River, Alabama, and had no minor children at that date. "Little Grannie Taylor" or Shanka was first married to a man named Foster and later married on William Taylor, whose daughter Betsey married James Scarborough, the fate of the principal applicant, John Scarborough.
It is stated that James Scarborough and Betsey Scarborough lived in 1830 near Gahawba River, in Perry County, Alabama; that James Scarborough died in 1833 and his wife, Betsey, proceeded him by death in 1832. It appears that Betsey Scarborough, nee Taylor, was a one-fourth blood Choctaw Indian woman and was herself the head of a family in 1830 at the date of the treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek. It is not shown nor is it claimed that Betsey Scarborough or her husband or any of their children were in anywise beneficiaries under article 14 of the treaty of 1830, and it is also shown that they were then residents of Perry County, Alabama, which at that time was without the exterior limits of the Choctaw ....
My lineage is James Scarborough (1781); Burrel Scarborough (1817); William Jefferson Scarbrough (1846); Grover Cleveland Scarbrough (1887); Burrel Lee Scarbrough (1932) Mary Beth Marshall (1962)
