Society of Mississippi Choctaw 1916

A sharp distinction is to be drawn between the Indians in Mississippi and the so-called Mississippi Choctaw “claimants.” The former are few in numbers and easily ascertainable, while the latter are numerous and scattered from Bayou Labatre, Alabama on the east to Mesa City, Arizona on the west. A number of these claimants are banded together in an organization known as “Society of Mississippi Choctaws.”

    Looking for my Byrd (Bird)Line, George Washington Bird 1809 married Lucy (Lucinda) Barker Byrd 1807. Both are buried in Atmore at Head of Perdido cemetery.
    A son John A Bird (Byrd) 1841 Married Margarett . Shows she is Choctaw on census .
    Would you have any information on this line of Byrds(Birds)? Thank you for any information you may have on this family.
