Catherine Franklin

I saw this message posted by Betty J. English in 1998 in the Cherokee Mailing List on rootsweb:

"I am seeking a woman named Eliza Watseeka Shawheehou. She may have had connections to families..Franklin, McComas, Shelton. Other given names include: Mary or Elnora."

I am also looking for information on this woman. She used the name Catherine Franklin and had a brother, Edward Franklin. She and Edward were orphaned and put in a home by the state of KY. But they were supposedly mistreated and "rescued" by the Sheltons and Franklins. This information comes from the correspondence of Kenneth Wilde and Hobart Franklin.

Any information is welcome.
