Re: Does Blood Really Matter?
In Response To: Re: Does Blood Really Matter? ()

Posters after doing a lot of research, I feel no need to mention all the names of the Creek families I have searched that were mixed bloods, maybe a few, because it really didn't matter during the Dawes Commission period because the rule was the children of a married couple followed the mother whether she be a slave or an Indan.

Usually the freedmen husband or wife was placed on the freedmen roll especially if the Indian parent was dead.

All were citizens of the Creek nation and all were entitled to land. The problem that the Commisson created was the separate rolls identifying families freedmen or by bloods causing a separation of families and a problem with citizenship today.

Alex Williams, Creek freedmen cc#1272
Jane Williams - wife Creek by blood cc#348

Frank Henry - Creek by blood cc#1204
Jane Henry - Creek freedmen cc#1313

James Haynes - Creek by blood cc#1871
by Paulina Marshall - Creek freedmen cc#1346. Paulina's mother was Amy Marshall

Jack Howard, Creek freedmen cc#1078
Rebecca - wife - Creek freedmen same cc.
Rebecca's father was Jake Beams, Creek by blood c#1222.

Simon Peters - Creek by blood cc#907
Lucinda Peters - wife -Creek freedmen cc#194.

Wallace McNac - Creek by blood cc#1806
Fred McNac - his son Creek freedmen cc#1337

And of course the Graysons, Childers, etc. So many!!
