Me and two decedents had tested our DNA and had no American Indian at all as well, I am 81 percent British, and like you Irish and Scottish, so is another descendent of Neal, our other cousin Patrick Alred, his was much like ours no American Indian at all. We all had all been told the Cherokee myth. One of our misinformed cousins down in Mississippi, had them put "full blooded Cherokee" on Neal’s cemetery page, but all Neal’s census records listed Neal as a white man. I bet Neal was not happy that this occurred. Waters is not a Cherokee last name, I asked the Cherokee Nation, and what Cherokee woman would name her child William Cornelius, and call him Neal, that is a name an Irish mother would give her son, and Neal was the nickname for Cornelius. Anna Sullivan Waters was Neal's mother. I know back in the 1970s everyone in the south was claiming to be decedents of American Indians, but in the 1840s and 1850s full-blooded Cherokee Indians would not be allowed to travel freely in the black and white Antebellum South of Tennessee. The trail of tears had expelled them may years before to the Indiana territory out in what would become Oklahoma. Also keep in mind that Great Britain was part of the Roman Empire for many centuries, and many decedents of British ancestry have dark hair and brown eyes, due to the fact the Roman’s intermarried with the local British inhabits. Plus, Anna was what folks call Black Irish, that is an Irish person with darker hair, sometimes dark red, or raven black.
