BRYANT / HUX / KING    December 28, 2004
I am seeking information about William H. BRYANT. he would have been my GG Grandfather.
I understand that he was the Chief of the Cherokee Indian Tribe in Hoke County. He had
a daughter named Medora BRYANT who married Lert KING. Spelling of Lerk could also be 
Leart or Lurt. Lert Died 6 months before my grandfather and his twin were born in 1907.
I can not find any birth or death dates for lert or William H. BRYANT. William Bryant was 
married to Rebecca Elizabeth HUX. Her father was James Samuel HUX. I am seeking information
on them. I would really like information about the Indian side of us too. It's my understanding
that there were no birth or death certificates back in those days, so I don't know how to go
about proving my heritage and blood line. If you can help me I would greatly appreciate it.
There is also mention of Halifax County. My Grandfather's siblings were Bertha KING, Badger
KING, Caudy KING, Samson KING, and my grandfather and twin brother Elvert and Ervert KING.

My fathers ancestors are buried in the cemetery at Sandy Grove Church. I once attended a reunion 
there and met many of the in-laws.

I am 64, disabled and living in Australia; originally from Florida.
I was adopted at birth by the Gray family of Florida.
I am a long standing member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and am trying to document the 
family blood line for my only remaining son and grand-daughters. Any assistance you can provide 
will be greatly appreciated. James Cameron Gray.

CAMERON    July 12, 2004
William CAMERON, 3 North Carolina Artillery, Confederate Company G, Captain, film number M230 roll 6
John CAMERON, 8 North Carolina Senior Reserves, Confederate, Lieutenant, film number M230 roll 

One of these is an uncle and the other my grandfather. What I need to know is anything relating to them. 
I know one is buried in a small church graveyard that along with the church is now on Military 
Reservation property. I visited it when there some years ago during a reunion at the little church; 
which has been restored and I believe is on the preservation registery.

William Lochlin CAMERON from Raeford and Vass, N.C.  was my father; I was adopted at birth by a 
policeman's family, from where I got the last name Gray. My half sister, Jane Williamson, lives 
near Southern Pines and now runs a gas company there. Any assistance you can give me would be 
greatly appreciated. Sincerely, James Cameron Gray.

there has seen the grave.  If so please e-mail Bonnie Gay. Thank you so much.
