I'm looking for the correct path for my GreatGrandparents, James and Nancy Thorne. The 1900 census has them living in Grayson County. Their daughter, Mary, was my Grandmother.
According to family oral history, James was Cherokee and delivered mail on horseback. Nancy was French. It could be that James tried to hide his Cherokee heritage.
Mary's husband was Gurnie Windfield Adams from North Carolina. They moved to Mascot, Knox County, Tennessee.
Thanks for looking!!
