The Cherokees Vs. Dawsons 1902 Court Case is Here. This is an interesting court case between the Cherokees and the Dawsons. The Dawsons won after a two year court battle. A shifty Lawyer claimed that the Dawsons were not Cherokee and had bribed their way onto the tribal roles. At that point in time, many Cherokees were claiming that they were not Cherokee or had less Cherokee blood than they did. It is a good geneological source, and also gives a glimpse into the legal climate of the Cherokee courts in 1902. If you are interested in the legal story part, it starts about two-thirds of the way through the text.
