I recently joined and I am trying to locate a great grandfather, William Thomas Hunt before 1879 (said to be Cherokee).

I would appreciate any help as to how I can get more information.  I have checked American Indian Rolls, U.S. Census records and the Land Office records.  He was born about 1838 in Georgia or Kentucky.  Family has a date of death as May 12, 1908.  I have found a Texas Marriage Certificate for W.T. Hunt and Sallie A. Carroll (aka Sarah Ann Carroll), January 29, 1879, Freestone, Texas.  I also found records in the 1880 Census, Precinct 6, Cooke, Texas and possibly 1910 Texas Census.

I want to thank you for the help in researching.  The record unfortunately is not a match.  Sarah Ann Carroll was born June 28, 1861 in Texas.  I am sorry for not including that information.  I am working on my WikiTree now.

Best Regards,

Yvette Lyons
