>About a mile and a half directly south of the Wilson school is the homestead land of Mary Elizabeth McCreary. She was a school teacher, who went on from the Nation to Ohio for her teaching education. She also was Cherokee and the daughter of Nannie Hildebrand and Granddaughter of John Hildebrand SR and Susannah WomanCatcher, a Full Blood Cherokee. Mary E. married James DAniel (born 1838) in 1860-61, and they had 2 daughters. Their oldest was Martha J. Daniel. Martha married Lewis Wilson, son of George Wilson, Jr. and Grandson of George and Ruthy Wilson, the ones mentioned below. Mary's second husband was James Alcorn. So Mary E. was a Teacher and lived on the neighboring farm to George and Ruth Wilson and the Wilson's had a school, ( would it be possible she was the teacher there??) and Mary's daughter, Martha, married George and Ruth's grandson, Lewis. Gee---I wonder how they met??? Oh yeah, after Arch and Becky left the Wilson homestead, George Jr moved in and lived one!

>I am a full-blood Western Cherokee Indian, could not talk the English language until I was fifteen years old. When only a mere lad, a Mr. Alexander D. WILSON (son of George and Ruthy Wilson) came after me up in the Saline District, and brought me to his farm on McClain Creek on Maynard Bayou, east of Fort Gibson. This was in the year 1856. Alex's father and mother died in 1850 and 1851 and were buried on this farm. George was sixty-four years of age when he died and Ruthy was about two years younger. The Wilsons were Cherokees. Alex, the one who came after me, died in 1858. He belonged to the Masonic order. His wife's name (Alex's wife) was Beckie, and within a year Alex's brother, Arch Wilson, married Alex's widow.

>It was while I was with Alex these two years that I attended school. This was the Wilson school and was on the Wilson farm located about one mile east of the house. It was an old log schoolhouse and the ___ is there no longer.

>Arch Wilson and his wife, Beckie, and I moved from the Wilson farm down on the Illinois River in what is known as the Linder Bend District. (The Lewis ROGERS farm today was the Wilson farm.)
