Information provided to me by another researcher indicates that the Kelone family came from Ireland and that they married women in Avoyelles Parish of French ancestry. Also Emeric and William were both children of Pierre Sidney Kelone and Laura Smith Kelone. Laura apparently died between 1930 and 1936 because Pierre remarried in 1937.
The 1930 census for East Feliciana Parish shows Laura Kelone in the household of her father Jacob Sellers Smith with Emeric and William, both of whom are listed as his grandsons. Pierre is in Orleans Parish with a nephew in his household. Laura told the census taker that she was married but Pierre told the census taker that he was a widower.
I don't see any indications of Cherokee ancestry.
