Help! Family lore states my husband's great grandfather is a Cherokee living in Cherokee, GA. His name was William Hebert Duncan. (Also listed as "Will Duncan and William Duncorn in various censuses.)The US Census's that I know are of him and his family state his race as white, however I cannot find any notation, references of who his parents were. So, I did some research on Indian Rolls and have only found the 1851 Chapman Roll showing a Duncan family living in Cherokee, GA at the time. Since the G-grandfather was born in 1872-1874, this family could be his fathers. *This same family shows as white in the 1850 US Census.
Any advise or help in taking this forward to make the link would be appreciated.
