You've probably already found this, but:
PATHKILLER - GARDENHIRE, James T. & wife, Sarah vs. Wiley BLAIR & others - Circuit Court - 1849http://www.roanetnheritage.com/research/native/03.htm
I'm trying to locate information on the Chavis, Shavers, Shivers, Chavers families in east TN as they have tradition of Cherokee blood. I've found one CHAVIS listed in the Cherokee Agency records in 1819 who was recognized as a Cherokee by the community, seems to have lived around the Battle Creek area, but no first name. The above Pathkiller record mentions a Burrell Chavis who is called a black man in it, but he could be Cherokee. Any help appreciated. Thanks!
