Look for the Lumbee Indians of NC. They used to be called Cherokee. There is actually alot of info on the web about them. The name Lumbee is a realatively new name the tribe recently adopted.

It is very interesting to do research on this tribe. Look it up!

That is a strange coincidence. I dont know if they could be relatives of this Robert Jackson or never know. This one would have been born in the 1800's and i failed to mention that he lived in Graham County or Robbinsville/Snowbird area.
