Grant Jackson, Creek Freedmen
I am posting about Grant, but also because he is the half brother of Clinton Jackson, Creek freedmen, cc#1340.
Grant is a mixed blood (age 5) on the Creek freedmen roll, cc#449 and his grandmother, Rose Thompson, is a Creek by blood, cc#1822.
I don't understand the Dawes Commission's reasoning for placing Grant on the freedmen roll (his mother dead) when he had a relative on the by blood roll.
