MtDNA=HVR1 England, France, Greece & HVR1 German, France, Ireland

And their descendants are found living in and around Grundy County, Tennessee at this time.




We will begin the knowledge of using the MtDNA for the mothers lines in this Ancestors View of this family at the 2nd generation and the test results do cover the female/male siblings with in the 1st generation as well. With a female & male descendant of this line taking the DNA test for the "mothers" lines the results showing Haplogroup/Heritage: HVR1=German, France, Ireland and we find no Native American Ancestry in this line for the mothers DNA. An additional point that brought the issue to light was the suggestion by descendants using the Native American Rolls (see below) to give the allusion of such a heritage and even on the male line but in fact the "ancestor" was not even in the "area" for the Roll #'s associated with that name nor by date was he even of the age to fit the criteria for the Rolls. Also one female name was associated with a Roll # and that proved to be on the "denied" list. (see below). The sources are provided with the documentation either in the "event/fact" area or at the end of this report under Sources.

Note: The Haplogroup/Heritage is a MtDNA=female DNA Heritage group and a Male as well as a Female can take the test for the mothers lines to arrive at the heritage on all lines associated with the these families. This also does give then the heritage for the "mothers" that we do not know the surname for them as well and thus NO Native American Ancestry exists in these lines as well.

Brazelton's Battalion was also called the 2nd Battalion and the 5th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion.
FIELD OFFICERS
Colonel-James E. Carter
Lieutenant Colonel-Onslow Bean
Majors-A. M. Goforth, John B. King, Richard S. VanDyke
The 3rd (Brazelton's) Tennessee Cavalry Battalion was organized with six companies in 1861 as a twelve month organization, with Lieutenant Colonel William Brazelton, Jr., and Major James C. Bradford as Field Officers. On March 27, 1862 the Adjutant and Inspector Generals Office ordered: "The 3rd Cavalry Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel William Brazelton, Jr., with companies of Captains McHenry, McCaskill, Bledsoe and Sanders, are hereby organized into a regiment to be known and designated as the 1st Tennessee Cavalry Regiment, with Colonel William Brazelton, Jr. and Lieutenant Colonel James F. Brewer as field officers." This order was apparently never put into effect, for on May 12, 1862, the battalion was reorganized with James E. Carter as lieutenant colonel, and Onslow Bean as major, and was officially recognized as the 14th (Carter's) Tennessee Cavalry Battalion. Finally on November 14, 1862, the battalion was increased to a regiment by the addition of four other companies; two other companies were added in 1863. The company letters were changed at the reorganization as the 14th Battalion, and again at the organization of the regiment. The original companies, with changes in company Co. "H" letters shown, were as follows:
Regiment14thBattalionOriginal Co. "A" at Sulphur Springs, Rhea County. Captains Burton Lenty, Green B. Keys. Co. "B" August 7, 1861 at Cleveland, Brad ley County, with men from Hamilton County. Captains William Snow, John B. King, David N. Montgomery. Co. "C" August 3, 1861 at Athens, McMinn County. Men from Mc- Miun and Monroe. Cap tains J. A. Gouldy, Richard S. Van Dyke, Andrew I. Thompson. Co. "D" August 5, 1861 at Knoxville, with men from Rhea, Roane and Bledsoe Counties. Captains Tim Bradley, William T. Gass, Weath erston S. Greer. Co. "E" August 8, 1861 at Knoxville, with men from Union and Knox Counties. Captains John Robertson, E. Hurst, John I. Jarnagin, D. C. Smart. Co. "K" July 20, 1861 at Mossy Creek, Jefferson County. Captains John F. Baker, James C. Brad ford, Alex M. Goforth, Richard M. Swearingen. Additional companies added at organization of the regiment:
"F" August 10, 1862 from Claiborne County. No muster roll on file. Captain R. Frank Fulkerson. Co. "G" Co. "L", 64th North Carolina Infantry Regiment. Organized September 17, 1862 at Maryville, Blount County. Captains A. P. Wiggs, J. M. Kidd. Co. "H" Co. "G", Thomas North Carolina Legion. Organized September 24, 1862 from Jefferson County. Captains David Neff, T. Coursey Co. "I" Co. "D", Thomas North Carolina Legion. Organized September 25, 1862 in Blount County. Captain William C. Wallace. No muster roll on file. Later additions to the regiment. Co. "L" as six month troops August, 1863, in Claiborne County. Ordered by Lieutenant General James Longstreet into permanent organization March 9, 1864. Cap tain William A. Blackburn. No muster roll on file. Co. "M" September 3, 1863 at J onesboro, from a number of con scripts enlisted within the enemy lines. Attached to this regiment by Brigadier General John C. Vaughn, March 11, 1864. Men from Wash ington, Sullivan and Carter Coun ties. Not accounted for on regi mental roster dated February 1865. Captain Edward Gammon. Prior to the organization of the regiment, the battalion had been operating in the neighborhood of Cumberland and Big Creek Gaps, along the line of railroad. When the regiment was organized it was assigned to Brigadier General John Pegram's Cavalry Brigade in Lieutenant General E. Kirby Smith's Department. This brigade was composed of Howard's Alabama Regiment, 2nd (Ashby's), 4th (Starnes'), I. E. Carter's Tennessee Cavalry Regiment, and Marshall's Battery. Prior to the Battle of Murfreesboro, on December 29, 1862, Carter's Regiment joined Brigadier General Joseph Wheeler's Brigade, and participated in his raid around the Federal Army from Jefferson Springs to LaVergue, to Nolensville, to Murfreesboro. It was engaged on December 31 along the Murfreesboro Pike. Following this battle, the regiment returned to Pegram's Brigade, in the Department of East Tennessee under Brigadier General D. S. Donelson. On February 20, 1863, this brigade was reported as composed of the 1st Georgia, 1st Louisiana, 1st (Carter's) Tennessee, 2nd
However, Captain B. S. Van Dyke's Company "C" had been detached to Colonel A. W. Reynolds' Brigade in the Department of Mississippi and Eastern Louisiana, and served in the campaign around Vicksburg, and the seige of Vicksburg, until the surrender of that city on July 4, 1863, when it was temporarily attached to Colonel T. N. Waul's Texas Legion.
With Pegram's Brigade, the regiment took part in operations in Lincoln, Boyle and Garrard Counties of Kentucky, and was engaged March 30, 1863 at the junction of the Stanford and Crab Orchard Roads where it was under the command of Colonel 3.5. Scott, of the 1st Louisiana Regiment. General Pegram's comment on this operation is interesting: "For Colonel Scott's operations, I refer you to the accompanying report. Touching this curious document I have only to say that I cannot but admire the ingenuity with which Colonel Scott has attempted to account for disobedience of orders and dilatoriness of action which it is my sincere belief lost us the fight." Colonel Carter reported five officers and 32 men as casualties in this operation.
On April 25, 1863, Colonel J. I. Morrison was reported in command of the brigade, now listed as composed of 1st Georgia, 1st and 2nd Tennessee Regiments, 12th and 16th Cavalry Battalions, and Huwald's Battery. The brigade was at Albany, Kentucky on May 1; at Travisville, Fentress County, Kentucky on May 2. On July 23, the Chief of Staff, at Knoxville, ordered Colonel Scott, then commanding the brigade, to send 300 horses of 1st (Carter's) Regiment to Loudon, Tennessee. On July 31, Pegram's Brigade, consisting of 1st and 6th Georgia Regiments, 7th North Carolina Battalion, 1st Tennessee Regiment, Rucker's Legion, and Huwald's Battery was reported at Ebenezer. On August 15, Carter's Regiment was reported as operating near Clinton. It participated in the fighting around Cumberland Gap which resulted in the capture of that point by the Federal troops on September 9, 1863, but the regiment had escaped up the valley before the surrender, and on September 11 Colonel Carter was reported in command of the brigade near Lee Courthouse. On September 18, Carter's Regiment was driven from the ford above Kingsport after a severe fight.
Somewhere about this time, the regiment was assigned to Brigadier General John S. Williams' Cavalry Brigade, composed of the 16th Georgia Battalion, 4th Kentucky Regiment, 10th Kentucky Battalion, May's Kentucky Regiment, 1st Tennessee and 64th Virginia Regiments, which on October 31, 1863 was reported at Saltyille, Virginia. On the same date, October 31, 1863, Special Order Number 282 of the Army of Tennessee placed 1st (Carter's) Regiment in the 2nd Brigade of Major General Joseph Wheeler's Cavalry Corps, and on November 19, 1863 an order from the Headquarters of the Cavalry Corps near Knoxville ordered "Brigadier General W. Y. C. Humes will proceed to Dalton, Georgia and report to Brigadier General H. B. Davidson for assignment to a cavalry brigade composed of the following regiments; 1st (6th) Wheeler's, 1st (Carter's), 4th (Baxter Smith's), 11th (Holman's). On November 20, 1863, General Bragg's organization of the Army of Tennessee showed the regiment in Brigadier General Henry B. Davidson's Brigade, Major General John A. Wharton's Division, Major General Joseph Wheeler's Cavalry Corps. This listed the brigade as composed of 1st (Carter's), 2nd (Ashby's), 4th (McLemore's), 6th (James T. Wheeler's), and 11th (Holman's) Regiments.
Despite these orders, Carter's Regiment was reported near Rogersville on November 1, in Williams' Brigade, with Colonel H. L. Gutner commanding. On November 30, and on December 31, Colonel Carter was reported as commanding the brigade. Perhaps the explanation for this apparent contradiction may be found in a statement by Colonel Carter in his sketch of the regiment in Lindsley's Annals. He stated that Captain Swearingen's Company "K" was with General Johnston on his memorable march from Dalton to Atlanta, and did some hard fighting. Apparently this company was listed in orders of battle as the 1st Tennessee Cavalry Regiment, for it was mentioned in Federal reports of the fighting around Marietta, Georgia on June 20, 1864, and was shown as a member of Ashby's Brigade, of Humes' Division on June 30, 1864.
In the meantime, Captain Van Dyke's Company "C" had returned from Mississippi, and on November 24, 1863 was at Charleston, Tennessee with Colonel John C. Carter's 38th Tennessee Infantry Regiment. Colonel Carter highly commended Captain Van Dyke and his 44 men for the part they played in helping his forces to evacuate Charleston without being captured. Captain Van Dyke's Company later rejoined the regiment, and Van Dyke became major, but it is not known whether or not Swearingen's Company was ever reunited with the rest of the regiment. On April 16, 1864, the regiment was transferred to Vaughn's Brigade, of Brigadier General J. C. Vaughn's Division, and reported 248 men present. It remained in this brigade until the end of the war. As part of Vaughn's Brigade, the regiment moved into Virginia in early 1864, fought at the Battle of Piedmont, or New Hope Church, and in the subsequent campaign in the Valley of Virginia under General Early. On August 22, 1864, Major General Ransom recommended the consolidation of the 12th and 16th Tennessee Cavalry Battalions with the 1st Tennessee Regiment under Colonel Carter, whom he called "a fine officer." This recommendation was not accepted and these units continued in the same brigade, as separate organizations. The last record of the regiment on February 28, 1865, showed it still in Vaughns Brigade, with Brigadier General John Echols in command of the Department. Echols disbanded his forces upon learning of the surrender of General Lee at Appomatox Courthouse.

Old Settler Roll 1851: A listing of Cherokee still living in 1851 who were already residing in Oklahoma when the main body of the Cherokee arrived in the winter of 1839--as a result of the Treaty of New Echota (1835). Approximately one third of the Cherokee people at that time were Old Settlers and two thirds were new arrivals.
Drennen Roll 1852: The first census of the new arrivals of 1839. The New Echota Treaty group--"Trail of Tears."
The Dawes Roll 1898-1914: The final roll for allotting the land and terminating the Cherokee nation of Oklahoma. Senator Henry L. Dawes was the commission's chairman and consequently, the name Dawes is associated with the final roll. The roll turned out to not be as final as it was expected to be. Upon the reorganization of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma in the 1970's, the Dawes Roll became the only means of certifying membership.

The
Dawes Rolls (or Final Rolls of Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes, or Dawes Commission of Final Rolls) were created by the Dawes Commission . The Commission, authorized by United States Congress in 1893, was required to negotiate with the Five Civilized Tribes to convince them to agree to an allotment plan and dissolution of the reservation system. One of the consequences was the creation of rolls of the members of the five tribes (Cherokee , Choctaw , Creek , Chickasaw , and Seminole ). The rolls were needed to assign the allotments and to provide an equitable division of all monies obtained. These rolls became known as the Dawes Rolls. The Dawes Commission was quickly flooded by applicants from all over the country trying to get on the rolls.
The Commission went to the individual tribes to obtain the membership lists but the first attempts were inadequate. Finally Congress passed the Curtis Act in 1898 which had a provision that a new roll would be taken and supersede all previous rolls.
Tribal citizens were enrolled under several categories:
Citizen by Blood
New Born Citizen by Blood
Minor Citizens by Blood
Citizen by Marriage
Freedmen (former black slaves of Indians)
New Born Freedmen
Minor Freedmen
Delaware Indians (those adopted by the Cherokee tribe were enrolled as a separate group within the Cherokee)
More that 250,000 people applied for membership, and the Dawes Commission enrolled just over 100,000. An act of Congress on April 26 , 1906 , closed the rolls on March 5 , 1907 . An additional 312 persons were enrolled under an act approved August 1 , 1914 .
The rolls are, for the most part, considered complete. Some Indians did not apply because of their displeasure with the allotment process and others applied but were rejected because of the residency requirements. Generally, though, to prove membership in any of the Five Civilized Tribes you must prove descent from a person listed as a citizen on the final rolls. Courts have upheld this rule even when it has been proven that a brother or sister of an ancestor was listed on the rolls but not the direct ancestor himself/herself.
The Rolls remain important today as several tribes use descent from Dawes Roll members as a requirement for tribal membership and the federal government uses them in determining status for Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood .

Additional Rolls:
Cherokee Rolls: East of the MississippiReservation Rolls 1817: A listing of those desiring a 640 acre tract in the east and permitted to reside there.
Emigration Rolls 1817-35: Those who filed to emigrate to Arkansas country, and after 1828 to Oklahoma.
Henderson Roll 1835: A census of over 16,000 Cherokee residing in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina who were to be removed to Oklahoma under the Treaty of New Echota (1835).
Mullay Roll 1848: A census of 1,517 Cherokee people who remained in North Carolina after the Removal of 1838. John C. Mullay took the census, pursuant to an act of Congress in 1848.
Siler Roll 1851: A listing of some 1,700 Eastern Cherokee who were entitled to a per capita payment, pursuant an act of Congress in 1850.
Chapman Roll 1852: Prepared by Albert Chapman as a listing of those Cherokee actually receiving payment based on the Siler Census.
Swetland Roll 1869: Prepared by S. H. Swetland as a listing of those Cherokee and their descendents who were listed as remaining in North Carolina by Mullay in 1848. Made pursuant to an act of Congress (1868) for a removal payment authorization.
Hester Roll 1883: Compiled by Joseph G. Hester as a roll of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in 1883. This roll is an excellent source of information, including ancestors, Chapman Roll number, age, English name and Indian name.
Churchill Roll 1908: Taken by Inspector Frank C. Churchill to certify members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Like the Hester Roll, it includes a lot of information, including degree of blood. Rejectees also are included.
Guion Miller Roll 1909: Compiled by Mr Miller of all Eastern Cherokee, not Old Settlers, residing either east or west of the Mississippi. Ordered by Court of Claims as a result of a suit won by the Eastern Cherokee. See Guion Miller Roll West for more details.
Baker Roll 1924: This was supposed to have been the final roll of the Eastern Cherokee. The land was to be alloted, and all were to become regular citizens. Fortunately, the Eastern Cherokee avoided the termination procedures, unlike their brothers of the Nation to the west. The Baker Roll Revised is the current membership roll of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina.

Assumption/Disproved: Baker Rolls Information on the rolls: #2357, Smith Robert M age: 22 Blood: 1/8 Son, #2367 Smith Margaret F age: 14 Blood: 1/1 Daughter Place: Andrews NC Allotment: Contested, 4 Jun 1924. 17 The final roll of the Eastern Cherokee, prepared by United States Agent Fred A. Baker, pursuant to an act of the 68th Congress, (43 stat., 376), June 4, 1924. Before preparation of this roll, the Act required that all land, money, and other property of the Tribe be transferred to the United States for final disposition. Termination of the Tribe as a government and political entity was the ultimate goal. After termination efforts failed, the Tribe continued to use the 1924 Baker Roll as its base roll. Descendants of those persons of the original Baker Roll are enrolled on the Baker Revised Roll, providing they meet the membership requirements of the Tribe.
