Comment : My father was born in 1894 on aug.26 in Blanche TN. His father met his mother at Paint Rock Indian School (or a mission School ) on Paint Rock river in Paint Rock AL.. My gr-father delivered coal to the School and met my grandmother. My father was three when his mom died in childbirth.  My grandfather then married Elizabeth Worley who was Silas Worley's sister. They resided at the BIG COVE in Huntsville AL.
Observation : Can you tell me if you know of this School or one similar to it. I do know there is a School there now with a native theme. I was wondering if perhaps it was the old Indian school revised. I also need to know the closest tribe of Cherokee to the paint rock area.
Your mention : My grandmother was called Lizzie and I have no other name. My father was twice the age of my mother. He died when I was nine and I knew nothing of his parents. My aunt which is daddy's half sister, told me a few things. I need to know exactly where the big cove is and did any native American families reside there before the whites. I know I am rattling but please if you can solve this mystery I would appreciate it. 
Other statement : My Aunt said that daddy was the black sheep of the family because his mom was a full blood Cherokee. She said grandpa gave the Chief a pony, corn, flour , a gun and money for her. I hope you can help or tell me where to go for help.
There was Bessie, Bernice and Bertha from gr-pa's second marriage in Huntsville AL
They are buried in Maple Cemetary. How can I get info. on them as well? Oh and we are kin to the Gurleys too... Thanking you in advance,

Comment :   I am a Gurley from Wayne County, North Carolina. Since the original Gurleys, Reverend John Gurley, settled first in Johnston County, NC in 1760 and Wayne County was actually part of Johnston County at that time, I feel sure we share the same roots.
Observation :   Some of our family plan to visit Gurley the first week in May.
Your mention :  We are Gurleys whose ancestors we believe settled in Johnston County, North Carolina around 1760. Our ancestral home is still there, located about six miles northeast of Princeton, part of which at that time was Boon Hill. The Reverend John Gurley family settled in Boon Hill in 1760. One of the Reverends' sons was Jeremiah. Jeremiah's son, John, migrated to Tennessee and on to Alabama first. Jeremiah followed him there later to live out his remaining days in Gurley. As you know, Frank was a son of John Gurley. Having said all that, four of us Gurley sisters (retired now) and three spouses are planning a trip out there the first week in May. If you have an opportunity, we would welcome any information you can share as to what to see in Gurley and Huntsville pertaining to the Gurleys. You may have guessed I have read "The Man Called Gurley" and found it fascinating! I have even talked with Colonel Steenbern's wife, Tinker, about the book. We are pretty sure we're related albeit it distantly! We have gleaned some information from your website. However, It would be great if we could actually sit down and talk with a senior Gurley family member (or someone who knew their history well) while we're visiting there. Do you know of anyone?
