    Was Winnie Hunt Parker a Cherokee or Creek Indian?

      I have been told on ancestry that Winnie Hunt Parker was Cherokee or Creek Indian, but both nations don't have her in their rolls. She was born in 1797 in Georgia and later moved to Alabama with her husband John Parker. She is mentioned as being the first Native American teacher at Elim Baptist Church in Conecuh County, AL. Since she dies in 1851, that maybe why she might not be on the rolls? She is on the census reports as white.

       

      My 4th great grandmother in the direct line were some say online she is Creek Indian from Alabama. Does anyone have information on  JOHN DENNIS PARKER marrying Narcises PEBBLES who is related in Claimant of Indian 1973 act?
