I have been searching for a few decades now for my great-grandmother's family.
My great grandmother was Arrainy Harding (Arana, Arena ??), b. 1825 in Va. She married James Wm. Kasinger, b. 1825 in KY, we believe in Missouri, for that is where their children were born. She is buried in the Thacker Cemetery near Mtn. Home, Baxter County, AR, but the year of her passing is not known. The courthouse there burned down in 1920.
She was, according to family members, a full blood Cherokee lady who spoke both Cherokee and English. One of her daughters, America, married William Biggers. These were my grandparents.
As I said, I've been searching for many years for Grandma Arrainy's family. So far as I know, they don't appear on any of the major Rolls. When I found this website and saw so many familiar surnames, there was a glimmer of hope that perhaps someone may have information on the Harding family.
