Yes, 262. Eli - son of Mariah Ponds, slave of Ben Marshall.
Martha - his wife - daughter of Matilda Canard, slave of Ben Marshall.
Sometimes on these cards, both parents are not mentioned. I guess the Dawes Commission just put enough information on the cards to determine which roll, freedmen or by blood.
