Dear Barry,

   Here's a late marriage (The bride is age 61.) for a daughter of Logan & Martha (Gillum) Bohannon in KY.  The bride is listed as white; don't know what the rules were in Kentucky during that time if she was part Native American.

"Kentucky, County Marriages, 1797-1954," database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 26 March 2016), Logan C Bohannon in entry for Tildon Blanton and Lula Bowman, 08 Apr 1946; citing p. 111, Magoffin, Kentucky, United States, Madison County Courthouse, Richmond; FHL microfilm 988,592. 

Hope this helps!  -NGP

Here is Logan and family in the 1880 census.

"United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 26 March 2016), Logan C Bohanan, Springfork, Breathitt, Kentucky, United States; citing enumeration district ED 15, sheet 618A, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 0405; FHL microfilm 1,254,405.
