Re: Creek Land for Sale in 1903
In Response To: Re: Creek Land for Sale in 1903 ()
I was trying to determine when my ancestor died and when his land was sold. On one document he is indicated being dead and his land was being sold. In another document he is selling his land in 1910 with his signature (an "x"). So, I am trying to figure out how his land was sold, under what circumstances.
In the process of trying to understand what happened in 1903 and 1904, it seems that all freedmen land was up for grabs. Like what was point of even getting land if it was going to be taken from them so quickly.
I have given this puzzle a rest for now. But, will probably go to Tulsa County one day and do a search for understanding.
Also what are the other family members connected to Rena Murrell and Nancy Murrell? You stated that you are related.
