MARGARET ELIZABETH BASKET was born 1856 in either MO or AR. I've had it confirmed by 2 sources in my family that she is Cherokee.

I found her (I think) in 1870 Jasper Co, MO census, living as a young girl with the William and Judith Martin family.

If this is her, maybe she was adopted and/or raised by this family and used the Martin name? My Margaret Elizabeth was married with Martin as her surname.

If anyone has any information about this family, please contact me at my home e-mail Thanks.
