              Notes Related to Claims for Enrollment as Members
        of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians of North Carolina

"Julia V. George nee Lee, a daughter of Catherine Lee, was born in Macon county, North Carolina,
and came to the Qualla Boundary at a very early age.  

"She attended the Indian Schools there and afterward Julia attended Hampton Normal School from 14
Sept. 1895 to 1900.  After leaving Hampton Institute, Julia married Wallace K. George, a Seneca
Indian, 3/4 degree from the Cattaraugus Reservation in the state of New York.  

"In 1924 she had two children living, Wallace L. George (Churchill Roll #1774, age 1, 1/32 degree
Cherokee) and Charlotte (Lottie) B. George (Churchill Roll #1773 age 3, 1/32 degree Cherokee).  As
the children of Julia V. George was born separate and apart from the community in the State of New
York, and as they never had any association and affiliation with the Eastern Band of Cherokee
Indians of North Carolina, or any recognition by said Band, it is believed that their claims for
enrollment should be rejected, but that the name of their mother, Julia V. George, should retained on
the final rolls.  Julia was #817 on the 1924 Baker Roll, 1/16 degree Eastern Cherokee, b. February
22, 1875. Age in 1926 (51), Churchill #1772; Hester #841. Guion Miller Application #11142,
1907.They lived in Silver Creek, Chautauqua Co. NY.  No other information."
