Re: Addt'l Info. - Monday Durant & Family

It is wonderful to see some descendants of Monday Durant showing up! There were two men by that name, whom I believe were either grandfather and grandson, or uncle and nephew.

The first Monday Durant was born about 1812 and died in 1889. (Buried in the Durant Family Cemetery in Muskogee)
The second Monday Durant was born about 1850 and died in 1935. (Buried in Cane Creek Cemetery in Okmulgee)

The elder Monday Durant was a major leader and interpreter among Creek Freedmen and a dynamic leader. (It is said that the cemetery rests on part of the old Durant land allotment.)
