Thomas Pierce Crow was my Great Great Great Great Grandfather on my mother's side of the family. He was a full-blooded Cherokee from North Carolina. We did not know this until a couple of months ago! My sister discovered his gravesite last week while visiting family in Tennessee. Everyone was surprised that he was buried there because we knew of the cemetary but had not known about Thomas until recently.
She brought me a picture of his tombstone which reads that he walked the Trail of Tears but at some point he escaped and returned. He was only twelve years old at the time. It isn't known if he was alone when he escaped and returned. Hopefully, we will be able to find more information about him.
So, amazingly enough, I had a 'crow' connection as far back as the early 19th century!
