Seeking information on Balch family and connections to Capt. Alfred
Henderson Wyly and his Balch cousins in San Jacinto. Also, some records
Sam Houston's mom was a Balch- others have another listed. Also, When Sam
Houston was adopted by John Jolly, a Cherokee chief of the east coast
, and left for Arkansas before the Trail of Tears. Sam Houston visited
in Arkansas with his old Cherokee friends from Ga. and Tennessee . Some
list a marriage of A Cherokee who married an Indian lady and did not
divorce his Anglo or his Cherokee wife, as the law of the indians were
not registerred with the State at first. State records did not list
divorces unless they had County birth certificates.
Divorce among some tribes was when a squaw would roll up their
blankets and move out and away from her husband.
Most sources on Google do not match Sam Houston records in Baylor in
Independence or Waco. Temple Houston graduated from Baylor and became
an attorney in west Oklahoma and ran for governor there.
Can anyone check these dots??
