Suite - James H. Trimble guardian vs. ...

Between Acena Anderson, Octaire Martin, Joel Martin, Thomas Hubbard, John Hubbard, Leora Hubbard, Elizabeth Hubbard, Green Hubbard, and Blanche Hubbard - to John H. Mack? - Land on Long Branch and Slate Creek - 137 acres.

My guess is that this record pertains to land left to heirs at death of Eli Hubbard. Evaline died in the mid 1870s, so her children are named. James H. Trimble was the guardian of Evaline's minor children at her death. Bettie Hubbard is not listed here...not sure why not.

Marriage Notes for ELIZABETH ANDERSON and ELI HUBBARD: Eli's age proved by Alfred Bouren. Elizabeth's father present. Minister Bullock.  Thomas T. Anderson signed for Elizabeth

The 1870 census shows Bettie Hubbard as a single mother of 1 year old son, Shelton Hubbard. Bettie and Shelton are shown in the household of Bettie's uncle, Abina Anderson. Bettie sister Evaline is also listed as a single mother. There is no indication that Evaline ever married.

It wasn't until later that year (December 1870) that Bettie Hubbard married Willis Roberts. By that time, Shelton was almost 2 years old. I have no proof that Willis Roberts was the father of Shelton, even though Shelton took on the Roberts after Willis and Bettie were married.  Willis Roberts died sometime before 1880. Bettie is listed as a widow on the 1880 census.

Notes for JAMES ANDERSON: I haven't found proof that James is the son of Thomas T. and Margaret Anderson, however, the evidence points that way.

Note:  According to family tradition, Elizabeth Anderson (daughter of Thomas T. Anderson) was a Cherokee Indian.   I have yet to find the evidence to support this, but  

1. Since Shelton was almost 2 years old when his mother married Willis Roberts, Willis may not have been the father. If not, perhaps the Native American blood was through the biological father. 

2. Adoption story: I received an email from a descendent of Bettie's brother, John B. Hubbard, regarding family stories about Indian ancestry:

"We have been told that we are part Indian. The story goes the parents of a baby Indian girl were killed and she was raised by a settler family, later married one of the sons. This information was given by a Tom Hubbard from Paris Ky. This is all I know. I really hope we have a connection" (This person is  a grand-daughter of Hattie Lee).

3. It is also possible that the Indian blood came through her father, Eli Hubbard.

4. My great aunt Lucille's genealogy notes show that Elizabeth Anderson was the Cherokee. Perhaps the original Indian/White marriage occurred much earlier.
