I am trying to get my children's CDIB card for the Cherokee Nation. I have traced their heritage back to the original person listed on the Roll. I have the roll number. I have obtained birth certificates and death certificates for everyone except the one. The last in the line.
I cannot find a death certificate. I can't even get a clear answer from family about where he died. The story I have gotten from some is that he was stabbed on a reservation in Arkansas. He was left in a field. I'm not sure the death was ever reported.
Any suggestions on getting him declared dead a certificate issued?
