Re: Creek Freedmen William and Monday Durant
In Response To: Re: Creek Freedmen William and Monday Durant ()
My grandfather passed away recently passed away in April 2013. His name was Oatmer (Bush) Reed (birthplace Muskogee, Oklahoma) His mother whom we all loved and called "Mama Bert" was the daughter of Monday Durant. Her real name was Alberty Durant.
After my grandfather's death, my aunt shared with me some official documents that my grandaddy was holding about my great grandmother's freedom being bought when she was only 7 months old, and her father (Monday) paid for her her freedom. She also shared info and documents supporting that they were of Creek Indian decent.
I am the oldest grandchild of Oatmer, and I am pretty computer savvy, so my family and I just wanted to know if there was any other helpful information that you could help us with.
