Hi,

It's not easy to determine a person's Native American heritage. They can be listed on the Census as Native American (In) or Colored.

You have to find the place where the person was first living. Then look up the history for that place and county to find out which Native Americans were living there at that time.

Then you have to contact their Nation (e. g. Cherokee Nation) and ask them if your person is in their records.

Trying to find Adam was difficult but the birth of some of his children places him in various places.

I didn't find Adam and Rachel's death info but they didn't appear on a 1930 Census.

I'd contact the Archives & Museum, http://cityofcamden.org/department/archives if you're looking for their death dates.

After you find their death dates, I'd contact the local public, library for copies of their obituaries. Their Native American heritage might be mentioned in their obits. Successful Searching!
