In Response To: Re: Candidate Silas JEFFERSON ()
Silas JEFFERSON is mentioned in same breath with McNACS. I'm confident Alec is the son of Wallace McNAC. At the very least they appear to have been political allies. The kinship link may not be far away.
Special to The News.
Muskogee, I.

Councilmen: Edward Gooden. Town Chief: Sam Bruner, Town Chief: Oches Harjo, Town Chief: Hulputta Fixico.
