Carolyn, Thank you for your message. I have not done any research on the Bigby family in a long time. I have looked in every nook and cranny out there. I can not find any concrete proof of who the parents, of our Susan Bigby, could be. I know the researchers that claim she is the daughter of James Bigby and Catherine Foreman, are grabbing for straws. The answer lies in Polk or Bradley county Tennessee. I have not found the Walls family for Henry Walls as well. Someone out there knows. Finding them is going to take time and travel. If I had the money and time, I would go to the two counties mentioned and wear their county court house out. I'm sure the answer is buried in the record books somewhere. Remember, being Cherokee was not a very popular thing back then. Families keep it secret from each other. Not all were proud like the ones that love the Cherokee in their heart. My grandmother, Nancy Ann Cantrell was proud to be Cherokee. I mess my grandmother, she died when I was fourteen, I am now fifty. I never got to know my real father, but my grandmother said he was full blood Cherokee. I always thought she was kidding because I never thought I looked like I was half Cherokee. I look more Cherokee now than when I was young. I had snow white hair until I was three or four. Thanks again and please write any time you like. Ronnie Sellers
