Of course this profile only has other trees as "sources." So I took a swig, steeled myself, and took a look at the attached profiles on those trees. What I found, after the break.

First, the attached profiles were for a number of different people. 11 of the 23 profiles had the name "Cherokee Woman." Those that didn't had one of these names:
Cherokee Woman Adair
Nancy Lightfoot (Cherokee) FOSTER Adair 2W5GGU
Ann Mc Carty
Nancy Lightfoot Foster
Sarah Susannah Laferty
Ester Ann "Cherokee" McBride-Hobson
Second, seven of the Cherokee Woman profiles only have other trees as "sources." No surprise there. For the few that do these are the records attached:
1900 United States Federal Census
H Foster; b. Aug 1883, Georgia; Race: Black
American Genealogical-Biographical Index (AGBI)
Esther Hubbard McBride
Family Data - Individual Records
Clark Hobson; Parents: Thomas, Sarah Hobson, Clark; Birth Place: Northumberland, VA; Birth Date: 1711

These tree owners aren't alone. There are literally dozens of profiles for a Cherokee Woman with these dates and hundreds more for other "Cherokee" Women.
Someone please make it stop!

  1. Wish I could make it stop. I have a "Tecumseh's daughter Massa" one that a couple of relatives came up with in the 1990s and which has turned into fact. Please, if you ever come across that while perusing Ancestry trees, feel free to call it out. Ugh.
