Howdy! Yes, my indian blood assimilated into the white community. I didn't
even know I had it until I was 30 years old. Was always interested in the
indians from the time I was about 6 years old. I've been researching for
that link ever since I found out. Have found next to nothing...
I don't know when the village was supposed to be in the area... just that
there was one there at some point in time.
I think perhaps the way my notes out of my FTM file was written was
misconstrued, that my family lived there in 1850 along with the indian
village. I apologize for any misunderstanding... My HUTSON family lived
there in that town on the 1850 census, and my ggg grandpa James R. Hutson
married Mary "Polly" YATES, who was supposed to be the full blood on Aug 6,
1854, but that marriage took place in Independence County, AR. Her name was
listed as "GATES" in the Independence County, AR Marriage book, but the
actual record clearly shows her name as YATES when you compare the writing
in the document.
It was probably the Shawnee's village you mentioned earlier. But there was
supposed to be a trading post there until the 1860-70's from my previous
research. I don't recall the indian agents name, but it wasn't WOLF, of
that I'm pretty sure. The name you mentioned as Chief does ring a bell...
just can't recall all the facts, I was out of researching for about 3 years
due to nursing school and life. It almost seems like Lewis was the one who
wrote the journals on the indians... the ones the college has.
Sorry, I don't recall more information, it's been years since I had
researched it and I have no further info at hand. If I come across it, when
I get to storage, I'll sure share it. I pretty much gave up on getting to
the college to gather info from the agents journals... and have pretty much
given up on finding the indian connection... Although the Western Cherokee
Nation of AR and MO of those who assimilated into the white community
supposedly knows it... I've never seen it.
Everyone in my family is long gone... my dad is the oldest. Chances are
slim to none on finding siblings, etc...
I know Mary Yates Hutson had a brother Jim Yates. No clue if he lived to
marry or not. He was living with them in 1860 at Wolf Bayou, Independence
Co, AR... Jim was 18, Mary was 23, James Hutson was 27. One of James &
Mary's daughters and her hubby perished in a fire in the Dallas area and
their 1 year old dau came to live with my gg grandmother Mary Ellen Hutson
Welch Holland Chambers Ellis Holland. Whew...
So my only way of finding out ANYTHING is if a descendant of Malinda or
Nancy, the other two daughters of James and Mary Hutson... or any of the
CROCKERS, descended from Rebecca would happen to know anything about the
indian connection, like indian names, etc...
In 14 years of researching... I've found little to go on.
See what youre getting intobefore you go there
