Surnames: Brown, Raper, McDaniels, Hopper, Old Hop, Standing Turkey, Gvn Doag
I don't know if this is still a live link, but try http://www.cdepot.net/raper and look for Eliza Raper. This was probably his daughter-in-law but may have been his wife. She came West, settling in chance, Oklahoma and is found living at age 80. Here's a big disclaimer: I wrote this family history compilation in 1994 and it has not been revised, essentially, since the internet made it possible to verify and corraborate sources to a much greater extent. But I do have a bit about Eliza Raper and her husband James Brown in A Family History posted up at my website, and I think you can get to it by going to:
http://www.geocities.com/ronscabin/genealogy
and then looking for the Raper Chapter. I show that *A* James Brown participated in the Jan. 1819 delegation to Washington with John ross, John Martin and others; That *A* James Brown served on the Cherokee Executive Council (West) in 1861 which opposed Confederate alliance and favored neugrality in the Civil War; And that there is a photo of Eliza Raper Brown in a book which you can purchase from the Adair County or Goingsnake District Historical Society, probably on Genweb, called The History of Adair County. Surnames to follow: Raper McDaniel, Hopper, Old Hop or Standing Turkey (the elder) of Chota, Gvn Doag.
