Very interested in your work, what is the title of your DocuVid, first and second book?
Fascinated and curious about the sheer number of African-Native family clusters who were born in both TX and "old Mexico," via the mass exodus from the old Nations in the Southeast, I began tracking them - - some of which eventually resettled in IT, but usually weren't enrolled by Dawes.
Are you familiar w/ Gordon's? Though born in old Mexico, they lived in Bracketsville during the 1870s and 80s a few doors from the Bruners and Julys. Several of their descendants completed the trek to IT and settled among the Choctaw, Seminole and Creeks; maintaining ties w/ Brunertown and Wewoka.
I've not been able to locate several of the ppl linked to these families. Perhaps, you can point me in the right direction.
