Sharon: According to family history my grandmother was an Occoneechee Indian. I have no way of proving that other than that history. From what I understand the Occoneechee were from the lower part of Virginia and from North Carolina. I don't know how to trace it but its not like the Cherokee who in fact were entered onto a roll like the Dawes Roll, etc. I know that there were Dillards in Nelson County and Buckingham County Virginia who migrated out of the state (to South Carolina and Alabama). I was trying to track back to Virginia and some Briants (Bryants) who may have been in that migration.
