Looking for info on Margaret Scrimshire born S,C, 1787. Father possibly George Scrimshire (Scrimshaw), She married David Louis Grace, Sr. and died after 1826 In Tn. David was from N.C. Their daughter Lavinia Grace married Elias Worley in 1837 in Johnson Co., Tn. According to a letter written before 1900 by Margaret's daughter-in-law, Margaret had 3 brothers, Englishmen, who married into the Cherokee tribe. It also mentioned that George Scrimshire's wife was a full-blooded Cherokee and a daughter of his married Bushyhead, late chief of the Cherokees. There were two chiefs named Bushyhead, Jesse and his son Dennis Wolfe.
Dennis married Elizabeth Alabama Scrimsher Adair, daughter of John G. Scrimsher, in 1870. The time frame is not right.
Does anyone have any information on Margaret and David Grace? Who were Margaret's parents?
