Re: Need information on Jane Colbert, Creek Freedm

Hi Stephanie,

It would appear Jane died bef. enrollment. However, her children's enrollment and subsequent census data lend some clues.

According to Israel's 1900 census data,
both parents (Edmund and Jane) were born in MS.

In her WPA Indian Pioneer's testimony (transcribed by Terry Smith, ggNephew), Anna Colbert (dau of Edmund and Jane Colbert)stated that she was 17 yrs. old when "freed." They (her parents) were in the removal from Mississippi. Jane's mistress was Sina Colbert.

Have you ordered any of the enrollment files for Edmund and Jane's children; accessed the WPA Indian Pioneer Interview's online or searched the IT/OK census? Terry Smith has posted on this forum - - use the search option to locate them. I've his eMail address in one of notebooks. EMail me, and let me know if you'd like to contact him or need additional assistance.
