Martha Ann Redden,Reddin.

Trying to help a cousin with her indian ancestry. Her Grandmother was Martha Ann Redden, daughter of William Redden. Martha was born 1874 in TN and died 1933 in MO.
She was part indian and was thought by family to be Cherokee. Martha married John S. Edwards.
Would be happy if someone out there could help as I don't really know where to start.
Thanks
Vera

There is at least one Redden family which intermarried into the Cherokee nation, but W. F. Redden, the patriarch, was white. He had a son, William, but William is 20 years too young to be the one you are searching for. W. F. had no child named Martha.

There are 4 Edwards families on the Dawes Rolls, none of which are headed by John S. & Martha.

I would suggest that you pursue your inquiry in sources such as the Federal Census, Missouri marriage, birth and death records, etc. Perhaps when you have additional names & dates it will be possible to actually determine whether there is any Indian ancestry in the family.

Good Luck.

Hi I am doing some family heritage research. I am trying to find some more information on my Father-in-law Mitchell R. Redden born in Tenessee in 1931. His mother was Katherine Johnson born in 1912 and He met his real father once and the story goes that his father was Cherokee Indian. Do you know if there is a place on line to find birth certificates?

Yes I am still doing research. Mitchel Redden would be the son of Martha.

What do you need to know and perhaps I can help you. The Martha Ann I'm related to has a son name Brodie Harrison Redden does that ring a bell?
