      10. John Gore, born Abt. 1881 in SC/NC. He was the son of 20. Father Gore (Reis/Rice) and 21. Mother Gore. He married 11. Johnnie Edith Howard Abt. 1915 in FL.

      11. Johnnie Edith Howard, born Abt. 1895 in FL. She was the daughter of 22. Father Howard and 23. Mary.

Notes for John Gore:
A branch of the Iroquois, later to be called Cherokee Indians, who moved south from Iroquoian lands in New England. Consisting of 7 clans, the Cherokee Nation stretched from the Ohio River into South Carolina.

Each village consisted of up to 50 log and mud huts grouped around the town square, called the Council House, where ceremonial and public meetings were held. The council house was seven-sided to represent the seven clans of the Cherokee: Bird, Paint, Deer, Wolf, Blue, Long Hair, and Wild Potato.
Each tribe elected two chiefs -- a Peace Chief who counseled during peaceful times and a War Chief who made decisions during times of war. However, the Chiefs did not rule absolutely. Decision making was a more democratic process, with tribal members having the opportunity to voice concerns.

Cherokee Indians society was a matriarchy. The children took the clan of the mother, and kinship was traced through the mother's family. Women had an equal voice in the affairs of the tribe. Marriage was only allowed between members of different clans. Property was passed on according to clan alliance.

The Cherokee Indians battled Carolina settlers in the 1760's, but eventually withdrew to the Blue Ridge Mountains. As the white population expanded conflicts arose. War and disease decimated the tribe. The Cherokee Indians were eventually forced to sign over much of their land, first to the British and then to the United States.

With the discovery of gold on Cherokee lands in 1828 and Andrew Jackson's 1830 Removal Act, calling for the relocation of all native peoples east of the Mississippi River to Oklahoma, the U. S. government forced the Cherokees from their homes in 1838. Almost 14,000 Cherokees began the trek westward in October of 1838. More than 4,000 died from cold, hunger, and disease during the six-month journey that came to be known as the "Trail of Tears." Altogether, about 100,000 natives, including Cherokee, Chickasaw, Seminole and Choctaw survived the journey.

A few Cherokees refused to move and hid among the wilderness of the Great Smoky Mountains, avoiding the army and authorities. These Cherokees, now called the Eastern Band, were allowed to claim some of their lands in western North Carolina in the 1870's. In 1889, this 56,000 acre sect of land was chartered and is now called the Qualla Indian Reservation, home to almost 11,000 descendents.

The name Qualla is said to have come from William Holland Thomas' wife, Polly Thomas. Mr Thomas was the only white man to ever serve as a Cherokee Indian Chief. He purchased land for the Indians in his own name and eventually served as Chief of Quallatown from 1839 until his death in 1893.

The Qualla Boundary is land held by the federal government trust held only for the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. There are less than 13,000 currently enrolled tribal members. It is required that someone be at least 1/32nd degree blood quantum descent from an enrollee on the 1924 Baker roll in order to enroll. The Baker Roll was made the tribe successfully resisted an allotment under the Dawes Act. The Band of Eastern Cherokee Indians placed its land into federal trust during port World War I in 1924. They created the Qualla Mutual Arts and Crafts co-op after World War II it was the first and is the oldest for any tribe.

Prior to the "Trail of Tears," a small group of Cherokees in western North Carolina had already received permission to be excluded from the move west. Those individuals, often called the Oconaluftee Indians, did not live on Cherokee Nation land and considered themselves separate from the Cherokee Nation. Permission for the Oconaluftee Cherokee Indians to remain in North Carolina had been obtained in part through the efforts of William H. Thomas, a successful business man, who had grown up among the Cherokee Indians. For more than 30 years he served as their attorney and adviser.
***************
The final roll of the Eastern Cherokee, prepared by United States Agent Fred A. Baker, pursuant to an act of the 68th Congress, (43 stat., 376), June 4, 1924. Before preparation of this roll, the Act required that all land, money, and other property of the Tribe be transferred to the United States for final disposition. Termination of the Tribe as a government and political entity was the ultimate goal. After termination efforts failed, the Tribe continued to use the 1924 Baker Roll as its base roll. Descendants of those persons of the original Baker Roll are enrolled on the Baker Revised Roll, providing they meet the membership requirements of the Tribe. (Total Records: 3176 )
