blk007: I'm glad to meet a cousin, but I remain unconvinced of the "Ah-Le-Ci" story. That story originated from a man named Wallace Seabolt and it is believed by many because of his association with an unrecognized tribe of North Georgia Cherokee. People have just repeated his claims at Find-A-Grave. Further, since writing my message board post back in 2013, I and my two living sisters have all had the Ancestry DNA test and not one of us showed the slightest trace of Native American DNA. These results don't definitely rule out Cherokee ancestry, but they do indicate it is highly unlikely. The Abraham Seabolt who is my ancestor married Christina/Christianna Ring/Rink/Rinke who was the daughter of a Hessian soldier --with no indication of Cherokee in her line. My Abraham appears on a list of "whites" given permission to live within the boundaries of the Cherokee Nation . Further, Abraham's son Caleb talks about watching the Indians do their "green corn" dance in his fields when he was a youth (verified by a clipping from the Dahlonega Nugget) which says to me he definitely didn't include himself as "Indian". I do believe that Abraham's father was likely a John (or Johann or Johannes) Seabolt who owned property in Lincoln County, NC, and whose estate was settled there by a Conrad Seabolt who was likely John's son or brother. We know by estate records that this John Seabolt was survived by his widow who is unnamed in the estate records. But property tax for John's 134 acres in Lincoln County, NC, is assessed to a Mary Seabolt after John's death. So I believe that John's wife at the time of his death was named Mary (perhaps Maria) -- not Sarah or "Ah-Le-Cie". I do not have an Amanda Caroline Seabolt or a John Kimsey West in my family tree.
