    Kindly give the history of your Cherokee ancestors, stating where they lived, died, and what part (if any) they took in the Cherokee councils at any time.
    Your wife, Emma J. Boling, has also filed application #19519. Kindly write yourself or have her write, setting up her Cherokee ancestry and showing why the ancestors through whom she claims do not appear on the Cherokee rolls of 1835 and 1851.

    Very respectfully,

    Monteagle, Tenn April 9 unreadable
    Hon Guion Miller
    Washington, D.C.
    Dear Sir,
    In reply to your letter of March 21st, I beg to say; -- From the best oI know the reason that my parents or grand parents are not register on the rolls of 1835 and 1851 is that, as I am told, my parents and grand parents were poor and illiterate, not being able to read or write and knew nothing about such enrollment. They had no notice or knowledge of such enrollment. All my people were free born and were never slaves. The only knowledge I have of my Cherokee ancestors is what I have been told by my people. As far back as I can remember both my father and my mother and other relatives have told me my ancestry were partly cherokee - that they were left behind when the Cherokees were removed from this sectin of country. The Indian ____ plainly shown in my family, and we are called Indians by the people of the community. We are very dark skins and black strait hair. Wh__ have said about myself applies in every ca__ my wife Emma J. Boling. Our children are dark, so much so as to receive special ___ from strangers. All my family including my wife and her relatives are regarded and spoken of in the community where we live as cherokee indians. We would like for you to see us.
    Truly yours
    Preston P. Boling

I never heard of my grandparents ever taking any part in tribal proceedings. My grandparents on both side came from Granger County, Tenn. I never heard of any Indian names of my parents or grandparents. I dont know whether Nancy Goins lived with the Indians or white people.
