Hi guys. I'm so new at this. I'm on the hunt for my grandmother's grandmother.
I only know her name because she signed her daughter's marriage certificate consenting to her being married at the age of 15. Her name was Louisa White (married name), her daughter Lucinda White Benefield.This particular side of my family tree has always been said to be Native American. My mom insists Cherokee, my uncle insists Creek. Can anyone give me any pointers to narrow my search? I've also seen "Louisa Cook" come up in some searches but not enough info to confirm that was her maiden name. They lived in Alabama.
