Dear Kathy Roberts,
Just discovered your post Ms Roberts.
You are correct, she (Dicy Carter) would not show up on the Dawes Roll since her father escaped the trail of tears and was located in Logan Co. W VA. (1832 or 33) She was born in 1833 in Gilbert Creek Valley Mingo Co. VA (Logan Co. W.VA. just before President Jackson's removal of Cherokees to IT. Some of the Cherokees had moved further north in the mountains. I researched and found small villages of Delaware, Shawnee, Cherokee and "Mingo" natives in West Virginia. Of course Logan County is named for the famous Chief Logan, and Logan County was formerly Mingo County that was divided into other counties although Mingo Co. still exists.
Her maiden name was Dicy Cline, the middle daughter of a large family and her father Peter Cline who raised her as his own. Written records of siblings witnessed the incident and Dicy was born of this union. She came to know him (surprised he wasn't hung) and spoke of him to my grandmother and others quite often. Hope this helps.
Also am really curious as to the date and reasons for the murder of her husband, Elisha Carter(age in 60's or 70's)in the 1880's or 1890's in Morehead, Rowan County, KY. He was dragged through the streets of Morehead murdered and left in Flemingsburg, KY. Killed at Camel , Fleming Co. and possibly buried at Cleavit Springs (?Clevit Springs)in or near the Belle Carter Farm in Fleming County.
He had been hiding at home of Dolly Hatfield (relative). He was listed on U.S. Census living in Morehead, KY in 1880.
He may have been killed during the time of the Tolliver-Logan Feud in the mid 1880's. A very sad chapter of time. Sorry it took so long to get back to you and hope all is well. Yours truly, Marion Allen Cole
P.S. Hope to come out at future time to do more research in Fleming and Logan Counties in Kentucky. Agains, Thanks so much.

So if I understand this post correctly: then Dicy (Cline) Carter was full Cherokee. Her daughter Lydia was my great grandmothers mother. My mom always said her grandma was an indian but I could not figure out which side it was on and which grandma. Dicy died in 1926 and my mom was born in 1923. I have a photo of Dicy with my moms cousin.
I also remember reading an article on Elisha Carter being drug through the streets but also have not been able to find it. I wasn't sure he was related until I got deeper into my genealogy research.

No, Dicy CLINE wasn't Indian. The CLINE family was originally from Germany.

So now I am confused as to the post by Marion Cole. Could someone please e-mail me at mcmart6@yahoo.com so I can get this straightened out.

There's nothing to be confused about.
In a previous thread there was some innacurate information posted by someone not familiar with Cherokee History/Records.

The CLINE and allied families are easily traced through both Colonial and Federal Records.
