Legend has it that most of the women in my family were Cherokee. Tracing them has proved almost impossible. Any idea as to the origin of the first name Armieo? My great-great grandmother Armieo Lowe was born 1812 in N.C. Family called her Anny or Anna.
I am not sure about the name of Armieo, but I know some of the libraries in Oklahoma have a very extensive collection of genealogy data on the Cherokees. Apparently the government keeps a pretty complete list of Indian families due to fact that if a person’s family is on the “roll call” or some type of list, they are eligible for various government benefits. You many want to check with your local library and see what books they can loan from other libraries.
At one time, I even owned a book containing a partial list of names on the Cherokee rolls, but I sold it many years ago.

A large two-engine train was crossing the country.
had gone some distance, one of the engines broke down.
”No problem,” the engineer thought and carried on at half
power. Farther on down the line, the other engine broke down
and the train came to a standstill.
The engineer decided he should inform the passengers about why
the train had stopped, and made the following announcement,
”Ladies and gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news.
The bad news is that both engines have failed, and we will be
stuck here for some time.
The good news is that you’re not in
Comments from 1955
1. “I’ll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it’s going to be impossible to buy a week’s groceries for $20.00.”
2. “Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won’t be long until $3,000 will only buy a used one.”
3. “If cigarettes keep going up in price, I’m going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous!!!!!”

7. “Kids today are impossible. Those ducktail haircuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls.”
