I read your reply with interest. Appears there may have been more than one Faught with a Cherokee connection. The one I traced to Oklahoma in the Trail of Tears event was evidently married to a Faught that had a family of two boys and one girl.They were first listed in Army records showing rations issued to New Echota Treaty Cherokees during 1836-38.They later appeared on Cherokee rolls in Oklahoma.

Another subject: I am trying to determine if John Harrison Faught was the John Faught listed in the War of 1812 files. I show John, Moses, Isham and William as Privates in the 36th Regiment of West TN Militia in Hickman County, TN. Samuel Faught of Hickman County was appointed a Lieutenant in the same Regiment in 1809.In 1806-8. a Samuel and John were living in White / Warren Counties.

I have been tracing William Faught b. 1764 in VA. as the possible father of John b. 1780, Samuel b. 1790 David b. 1795, and Wiley B b. 1799. The Isham and Moses of the Hickman County Militia would have been at least sixteen , and therefore, born around 1797. They may have also been Willian's sons. However, based upon their age , if the John in Hickman County in the War of 1812 period was your John Harrison Faught b. 1780, he could have been Isham and Mose's father. Do you any records that show if John was in White, Warren and Hickman counties as indicated? Also, I have only found William Faught listed in Hickman County; and the 1820 Census of Lawrence County / 1830 Census of Carrol County,TN. Do you have any thing on him?
