Re: Wilton Williams, Chickasaw Freedmen
In Response To: Re: Wilton Williams, Chickasaw Freedmen ()
Sallie was never on a by blood roll or any roll. So, to give her family a chance at enrollment, they were placed on the Chickasaw freedmen roll with their father (Wilton Williams), a recognized Chickasaw freedmen with a roll number.
Sallie's descendants cannot apply for Chickasaw by blood enrollment. She has no roll number.
To me if anybody is at fault in regards to Sallie it should be her mother. Sallie's mother should have placed Sallie on the by blood roll and apparently she did not. The Dawes Commission from what I understand is they look for previous rolls to determine their final enrollment decision.
