Re: Addt'l Info. - Monday Durant & Family
In Response To: Re: Addt'l Info. - Monday Durant & Family ()
It is wonderful to see some descendants of Monday Durant showing up! There were two men by that name, whom I believe were either grandfather and grandson, or uncle and nephew.
The first Monday Durant was born about 1812 and died in 1889. (Buried in the Durant Family Cemetery in Muskogee)
The elder Monday Durant was a major leader and interpreter among Creek Freedmen and a dynamic leader. (It is said that the cemetery rests on part of the old Durant land allotment.)
