Cherokee Cousin from Oregon

Well, I too have a great-great-grandmother who was Cherokee from Tennessee. Her name was Eliza Bright. She was my grandfather's grandmother. I do have all the documentation, no matter how ephemeral this story sounds, and indeed started out for me! Her brother is listed on the rolls, but of course that doesn't translate to my having a CDIB.
Still, I know her name, and I heard about her from my grandfather, Virgil Taylor.
