Some researchers believe she was married to a white man named Lightfoot. James Hicks "Cherokee Lineages" trees at genealogy.com  and John Strange  state without documentation that some or all of Ga-ho-ga’s children were fathered by a man named John Lightfoot. Some have specifically associated her with Capt. John Lightfoot. There is no documentation to support these claims. There is not a single person named “Lightfoot” in Starr’s Cherokee genealogies, but later in life daughter Dorcas was referred to as a half-blood.  Although there was a prominent and extensive Virginia Lightfoot family at this time with several sons named John, research has been unable to place a specific John Lightfoot in the Cherokee Nation at the correct time. The profile for Capt. John Lightfoot gives him a wife named Elizabeth and children named Claiborne and Celia.
Please note that this woman was never married to Doublehead.
According to Emmet Starr, Gahoga was a Cherokee woman of the Deer Clan, probably born in the 1730's (based on the ages of her daughters). Ga-ho-ga's parents, spouse, and dates of birth and death are unknown.
