My ggGrandmother's name was Ann UPOLE and she married John HILEMAN. Ann was supposedly a full-blooded Cherokee. This was on my Grandfather's side of the family. Now on my Grandmother's side I have a ggggGrandmother (I hope that's right) whose name was Sally Little John and she married William MUELLER (Allegany Ct). Sally Little John was half-Cherokee and the MUELLER name was later changed to MILLER. If anyone has any info on either of these, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks in advance.

I am seeking a female ROHN relative -- she may have been married, but I do not know to whom. She lived in Cumberland, Md. in the 19th century and was said to have lived to the age of 102 years, a fact which I hope will make her "stick out". Her father was John ROHN, who lived first in Berks County, PA, and then in Franklin County. He was said to have lived to the age of 125, being born in 1698 in Hamburg, Germany. He died in 1823. The daughter I am seeking is one of 18 children. Does anyone know who she was, married, or any other relevant information? Thanks!
