Re: 1860: Creek Nation, Indian Lands, Arkansas

I'm sorry David, but you and others are wrong. When these individuals left their home states, Alabama and Mississippi, they did not come straight into what we know as Oklahoma Indian Territory.

In 1860, Cow Tom was a free black man, he is not listed as being Indian, just living in Indian Territory, which at that time was part of Arkansas.

EXAMPLE: Caroline (Bush) Gentry was a white woman living in Mississippi in 1850. The family left Mississippi to move into Creek Nation Indian Territory, according to the 1860 census. In the 1850 census she was not part of Creek Nation.
