Hello Amee and L. Hope. I am of Cherokee descent on dad's side and through what I believe is my great-grandfather - William Paul Kinslow's Cherokee-French Canadian mother. I have seen Kinslow on the Cherokee Rolls. Refer to the Gouin Miller Roll of Eastern Cherokee Roll of 1909 http://www.accessgenealogy.com/native/guionmiller/kingfisher169.htm : #1671, Name: Sarah Kinslow (Odn) State: I.T. I imagine that the I.T. stands for Indian Territory, but I have no where that is and I have no idea what Odn means either. There are other Kinslows that have posted about their Cherokee or Indian Heritage. Kentucky was very much Cherokee at one time. And, there are still Cherokees up in Canada that have been there for many generations. So, just because they lived in IL, it doesn't make them from the Illinois Tribe necessarily. And, with a naming pattern of a "Waters" having a "Rivers" and a "Brooks", that is very Native American, more so than European. I hope that this helps some. Happy Researching.
Peace and blessings. Dolores Cobb Phifer
