Re: Creek Old Series Cards
In Response To: Re: Creek Old Series Cards ()
The old series cards are not meant to be related to the Dunn roll.
Also, some of the old series cards will have a split family. Some family members were placed on the freedmen roll and others on the by blood roll. If the mother was a slave then the freedmen roll, and if the mother was an Indian, the by blood roll.
If a Indian was married to a slave woman, his wife and children were placed on the freedmen roll with no blood quantum. Maybe not fair, but the Dawes Commission had to abide by the laws of the nation.
