Hi Gene.....Norma Jean (May) Huss is the lady you are inquiring about, but she passed away. Her book THE MAY FAMILY TREE is available at the library in Mt Vernon. I think my dad talked to a 'distant' relative the last time he was there. If you call him he may have the information you seek. From everything I can find, there is no solid paper trail that he was Cherokee, everything is word of mouth and has come down through the family. And yes, my email has changed !
