grandmother i was told in northern virginia 1880s northern virginia From my granmother

Well i was very curious about my family history so i told my grandmother on my father side about her parents and she told me that my great grandmother Verneice was the daughter of a black cherokee mother and a cherokee father also mixed and that was such a surprise to me beacuse i always thought that my grandmother had white in her and she also told me that it is possible that we were decendents of chiefs and i am still trying to figure that story out till this very day.
