Explanation:  Mr. Larry Petrisky is, in one way, just the average, everyday family history researcher.  Other times his work gives us wondrous things to think of.  In this series of articles, that adhere to many prominent figures within the Over-The-Hill Cherokee, we think that you may learn something.  They are, to say the least, controversial.

(Mr. Petrisky is a researcher for the Hembree surname which is an alternative spelling for Hembry, Emery, Emory, Embry and several others.  His Cherokee interest research grew from this.  He is NOT currentLY available to answer questions or discuss these bio's.  They are offered here for your information only.
