Patti et al;
I found this site regarding the history and location of Cherokeetown.
I ran across a story about a Cherokee posse searching for Sam Starr that came to Cherokeetown and questioned my ancestors, George Fields and his son Dempsey. (George was the brother of Richards Fields of the Texas Cherokee.) I assume George and Dempsey were living in Texas when the Texans drove them out. As I recall, Dempsey is mentioned in Everett's "The Texas Cherokee".
