Are there any benfits descendants of freedmen entitled to? My grandparents were Choctaw and Chickasaw freedmen. My G grandmother Susan Colbert was a half Cherokee(see Indian Pioneer Paper site: http://www.rootsweb.com/~okgenweb/pioneer/c.htm#019) My grandfather, Ollie Smith, first wife was Choctaw woman named Ida B. Miller they ended up with over 300 acres of land. They had a baby which mother and baby died between 1911-1912 around Hugo, Okla. I heard the creek freedmen are entitled to benefits for school. What about any of the other Freedmen?
