Does anyone have any information with respect to how
Benjis Creek on Sand Mountain got its name. I have heard the story that
a Cherokee family hid out on the Creek during the Indian removal, but
have no additional information or documentation. I have also heard the
name "Polly" Benge mentioned
but have no idea if she might relate to
this family. I would just like to know if there is any substance to
this story. Also, my dad first farmed on land on Sand Moutain which was
said to have indians buried. My dad was told to plow around these areas
which were marked with stones. One of the "Alabama" band boys leased
the land several years ago and it is my understanding that the stones
have been removed, but don't know if this is true or not.

under the teachings of Sequoyah. She is found in the 1850 Dekalb

greatgrandson whose last name was Stewart. All I know about him is that
his grandfather was Robert Stewart and his father was a John Stewart
and his mother was a Robinson or perhaps Robertson. According to
Charlie(b. ca. 1880-1970) his childhood friend was put in an Indian
school by a Bob Poe who is most likely a relative. I need to know this
