In Response To: Re: Lucy Holmes, Creek Freedmen ()
I'm looking for any information. More specifically i'm trying to find out more about Chloe Barnett and Scipio Barnett Who is Mary's Grandparents and Jincy's parents. I know Scipio had a farm and maybe a store too. Also, in 1865: Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws, Osages, Seminoles, Senecas, Senecas and Shawnees, and Quapaws all sent Delegates to Scipio's farm to negotiate a treaty some times referred as the Indian Treaty of 1865. Scipio also signed the treaty along with the delegates from the tribes and 4 other black creeks.
My wife is of Scipio's blood line and we are trying to research, record, and catalog both of our family's history (I'm a Cherokee/Choctaw freedmen) so we can pass our history to our children.
