Question
I am interested in finding out who Elvis Presley's great-great grandparens where and if his great-great grandmother was part Cherokee Indian.  Thank you  

Answer
Hi Theresa...thank you very much for your question.

Elvis' great-great grandparents were William Mansell and Morning Dove White...Yes, Morning Dove was full blood Cherokee indian.  That would make Elvis about 1/16 Cherokee.  I am 1/4 Cherokee indian..and I am always proud that we have alike blood. :)

I hope this has helped you.  If you need further information, please feel free to ask me anything, anytime.  I'll be glad to help with any Elvis question you might have.

Peace, Love and Elvis.....

Take care,

Sherrie

I'm sorry, but I can't answer questions on the value of Elvis memorabilia...I have a vast collection of things...and they are all priceless to me...so I never look for the value of an item. I cannot validify or counter the authenticity of any Elvis item or memorabilia....But I will glad to answer any question about Elvis and his life. I have "studied" Elvis since I was about 8 yrs. old. I am now 44. Have been to Graceland several times and try to go every year for the anniversary. In my spare time, I am all over the internet looking for anything to do with Elvis. My family calls me an "Elvis freak" instead of a fan...I`m very proud of that title...ha. I am not really into dates of song releases and such as that, but if you need to know anything about Elvis`s life, right down to what his mother called milk, I can answer just about anything. However, I cannot answer questions as to the value of items you may have. I loved Elvis very much and care deeply for his memory and will always be respectful of that as I would hope everyone will.
