Looking to find my Creek Indian roots. Family story is that My Grandmother Roen, Roena, or Rhuena Roberson was Creek Indian and lived in Arkansas around 1850-1860. Where she met and married My Grandfather Benjamin Smith of Franklin co N.C. thier union produced my grandfather John Roberson Smith. Can anyone please help me verify this? I have confirmed from DNA that I am part Native American, and this is the only lead I have in finding my poeple.

Hello, good luck with your research.
Most DNA test given is a matrial lineal test...your mother, her mother, her mother and so forth. If this is the case your North American Indian DNA came through your mother.
You may want to ask the DNA lab what test did they give you test.

Thank you for the reply. The DNA is not my question. And yes I am going through my mother's side of the family. I merely mentioned the DNA to demonstrate that I already know I am part Native American, but that I am looking for any Creek relatives with the surname of Roberson that may know more about my grandmother Roberson and can confirm the family story.

Eli,

I have made a new discovery. I had the name wrong on my ggg-grandmother her name was Anne Robertson not Roen Roberson. I am trying to find out what her mother and fathers names were. Is there anyway we can find out if she is truly Creek Indian?

The only thing I have been able to determine thus far is she may have went by the name Barbra Anne Robertson and I believe her father was James Henry Robertson jr. She Married Benjamin Smith of North Carolina.

Neither of these gentlemen have posted for over 10 years and neither are registered users so it's unlikely they will know of your message.

Perhaps you could provide some additional information and maybe someone can assist you.
When and where were these folk born ?
When did they reside in the Creek Nation IT ?
