Seeking information on Leroy markham, who was the father of Carter Daniel Marken who was the father of S. C. Markham who I think could be Sarah Markham who married Thomas Goodman
On the LDS site gives two or three different places but says Cherokee wolf clan one place was polk Co Tn, one one was in Ark and one was somewhere else?
Any info out there?

This is not the same family as the one you are researching.

Carter MARKHAM was born abt 1845, son of Leroy MARKHAM and Eliza WEST.
Carter married Elizabeth ADAIR, they removed west to the Cherokee Nation, where their children were born in the 1880's.
Fortner, Beatrice, Dewitt, David (Hogan) Earle, Lucille.
They are well documented, thru Emmett Starr and the Dawes Final Rolls.

It might be an idea to pursue your search for Thomas GOODMAN and Sarah MARKHAM thru TN Federal Records for the counties they resided in.

Thanks, have been doing that too, I was on the LDS site and ran Sarah as she was listed after she married the Goodman, in the Goodman one her mom was listed as being from Ar
I ran it as S. C. Markham and came up with Carter Markam as her father in AR. I ran Ar. and came up with no Carter ,,,so I went back to the LDS site and ran his name, Must be a different line, know Sarah was cherokee, Know Thomas was some? these Goodmans are hard to find and the Markhams are worse!
Thanks again

LDS is a great site, but it's always best to check any info you find there with actual records

By the late 1700's/early 1800's the Cherokee People had ceded their lands in what is now TN and by the time Thomas GOODMAN and Sarah MARKHAM were born, the Cherokees had been removed west of the Mississippi.

If you can get a copy of Thomas and Sarah's marriage record, that will confirm who their parents were.

Check the Perry Co census for 1850 and 1860. Lots of GOODMANs.

Good Luck

I realize this is responding to very old query but just in case, and also for anyone else exploring this line of inquiry...

{{The following data has been sourced (for the overall family, including Carter Daniel) in the Federal &/or Cherokee Nation census from 1860 through 1900.}}

Leroy Markham was white, b. 1810, TN (1860 Fed Census, Indian Lands west of AR. pg 1169)
He was married to Eliza West, a 1/4 blood Cherokee (Starr, *History of the Cherokee Indians & Their Legends and Folk Lore*)
Carter Daniel Markham was one of five children born to this marriage. He was born in 1845, in Indian Territory, (Indian Lands west of Arkansas) he was 1/8 blood Cherokee. And of the Wolf clan via his mother.

(Note: There is a second Leroy Markham which I stumbled on in 1870, CALIFORNIA, SANTA BARBARA county, LAS CRUCES P O, Page: 507:
(Leroy Markham, 35, white, TN, shepherd
(Margarita, 19, white (possibly Spanish), CA, keeping house)

Carter was married to Mary Huffaker (b. c1850), a mixed blood Cherokee, by whom he fathered five children, none were Sarah.
(children were: Ruth A., Eliza, George, James C., Walter A.)

Carter was also likely married to Eliza Adair, another mixed blood Cherokee, by whom he fathered six additional children, none were Sarah.
(Children were Fortner C., Beatrice, DeWitt, David Hogan, Earl Byrne, Lucille E.)

He enrolled under the Dawes Commission (#15757) and received payment under the Court of Appeals settlement (Guion MIller Roll), application #14096.

This data is from:
(1) 1860 Federal census, Indian Lands west of Arkansas
(2) Dr. Emmet Starr, History of the Cherokee Indians & Their Legends and Folk Lore,
(3) 1880 Cherokee Nation Census, transcribed by Barbara Benge
(4) 1890 Cherokee Nation Census, transcribed by Barbara Benge
(5) Dawes Roll "Plus" compiled by Bob Blankenship
(6) Miller Roll "Plus" compiled by Bob Blankenship

There was also a Jacob West Markham who married Charlotte Belle West d/o Ellis West & Clara Buffington. This couple had three children together: Susanm b. 1872, Sally, b. 1875, and J. W. born 1877.
Only Sarah survived into adulthood. Her census # was 2500.
Jacob was a brother of Carter Danel Markham
vd sources 2, 3,4

There was also a Sarah Markham, b. c1870, enrolled under Freedman Census #794. Her parents were Fred(b. 1836) & July (b. 1830) Markham, both classified as "adopted Colored".
