My Baker Family from Ohio

I believe this woman is my great-grandmother Margaret GATTON. Margaret was born in Ohio ca 1858 and married Andrew D. BAKER. She died in 1933 in southern Michigan and is buried in Kendall cemetery. It is clear that she had Indian blood. Margaret's parents were Albert G. GATTON, b. ca. 1795 OH, and Emaline DEVORE, b. ca 1816 OH. Both were Indian. Emaline's mother may have been Rachael BERRYMAN. The family had ties to Ohio Indian families named DENNISON and SUNDERLAND. If you have any more information, please e-mail me.
This is my grandmother Gertrude Baker Winchell. See a resemblance?

Great-Great-Uncle Allin Baker and his wife Carrie. Allin, and hence my great-grandfather Andrew, also had Indian ancestry. I suspect the family may have originated in Burke County, N.C. and had Cherokee members.
