  1. The Raven of Hiwassee, spelled in various ways, means various Cherokee Chiefs. The Raven line, part of the Bird Band, also has links to places like Raven Rocks of Happy or Scuddy, KY and Pine Mountain and other areas. There is more than one "Raven Rocks" in Cherokee history. Some Martin families of southeast Kenticky lived in sight of Raven Rocks (Elec or Alex and Melinda Martin) and others related to the Cherokee Martin families of Cherokee Nation and tribe.

  2. A man named "White Owl" is listed as a relative of Chief Dragging Canoe in some records. He may or may not be The Raven.

  4. I have just found out in recent days that he is my 7th great grandfather. This is amazing! To find out you come from such intelligent, heroic, history making people! May I ask if you know how I can go about getting documentation proving these facts? I'm subscribed to Ancestry.com and it has been difficult figuring out the truth vs. what other people decided to slap down on their ancestral tree.
