To bring one’s material to a strictly historical and classified order is almost an impossibility when dealing with a subject so diversified as that of the Red Race of the North American Continent. But I have sought, found and brought together an amount of information concerning that peculiar people that has never before been published; having been born of parents who were missionaries to the Choctaws in 1820, and having been reared among them and intimately acquainted with them during the vicissitudes of a life extending to nearly four score of years. I well know that the Indian race has oft been the subject of the pen, and still continues to be, but only in short details, thus leaving the reader in bewilderment, though historical truths were to be found in abundance among them wherever one turned truths one can never forget; scenes and events which have an imperishable memory.

Finally I decided to research Choctaw and Chickasaw. I’ve heard that I am related. Since my grandparents and parents are all gone. I only have name of my great great uncle, great great grandmother, grandfather, and grandmother. I’m very interested in researching these 2 tribes that I was told as a child that my blood is of theirs. My mother, siblings, and parents resided in Wiggins, Mississippi and Gulfport
