i am looking for information regarding my GGG Grandmother Matilda Hicks born 1800 Georgia or Alabama, died in Texas (not sure on the spelling). I am told she was Cherokee and a black slave on the census in the household to Joseph Jackson and then Nathaniel Jackson. she had several children with Nathaniel ) my GGG grandfather, but she had 2-3 previous children too.
I read that someone found her on the Dawes Rolls, i have not been able to find anything. I did somehow find a father and mother etc. but, i am beginning to think they are not linked (like names were too common).
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
