Did you ever find information on this? If not, I'm guessing that it is my grandmother's father that you are asking about. He went by Chief Johnson. He, also, went by T.J. I believe his real name was either Thomas Judsen Johnson or Thomas Jedson Johnson. If you did find something, will you please let me know. LOL I've been "stuck" at him and his wife for a while. I am trying to prove my Cherokee roots. Thanks!
