Charles (or Jackson), Sallie.
Choctaw by blood. Files: Memorandum of statements by Mr. Charles Knapp. district agent, Hugo; and Mr. T. C. Humphrey, Ardmore, Okla. Part I. Exhibit F, report March 3, 1900; also statement of William Charley, made November 30, 1908, at Idabel, Okla.. with Part III of said exhibit. From the above sources of information it appears that this woman is about 80 years of age; that she is a full-blood Choctaw, residing from 4 to 5 miles south of Garvin, Okla.; arid that her failure to secure enrollment was due to the fact that she was sick at the time when the commission was receiving applications in that vicinity. Mr. Hunter, ex-candidate for governor of the Choctaw Nation, says that he heard that the woman went to Garfin to be enrolled; that she stayed there several days without being able to get any attention from the enrollment officers; that other claimants and intermarried whites, being more persistent, crowded her away from the officers: and that, being sick, she returned to her home and gave up all efforts toward securing enrollment. Mr. Knapp, district agent, states that this woman has five children and that all of them have been enrolled. Similar information was obtained from her son, William Charles, November 30, 1908.

Creek by blood. Files: Part III, report March 3, 1909. This child Is about 11 or 12 years of age. Her parents are full-blood Creeks. Both have been enrolled. Her failure to secure enrollment is chargeable to the fact that her parents affiliated with the “Snake faction,” which opposed enrollment. The examiner who Investigated this case says: “Both the parents of this child appear to be, as their enrollment with undoubtedly show, full-blood Creeks, and their daughter Susie, for whom application Is made for enrollment, is undoubtedly. In my opinion,, a full-blood Creek. She Is apparently between 10 and 11 years of age.” Number of claimants In this memorandum. 1.

Crowder, Mary A. (Memorandum 279), Roswell, Okla.
Choctaw by marriage. Files: Part I of report of March 3, 1909. “This applicant claims as intermarried Choctaw through marriage to Green Crowder, finally enrolled Choctaw by blood. He had been married and divorced prior to his marriage to Mary A. Crowder, but the divorce having been granted in the Choctaw tribal court, and those records having been all sent to Tuskahoma and piled into the vault therein in an indiscriminate mass, and there being nobody in charge thereof to get a copy of the record from, we had to resort to secondary evidence to prove this divorce, and the commissioner denied applicant on February 26, 1907, because no certified copy of the decree of divorce had been filed. Secondary evidence may be introduced if the’ records are destroyed, and these records were as good as destroyed, owing to their condition incident to the breaking up of the tribal government which was to have taken place March 4, 1906. The commission’s decision denying applicant was affirmed March 4, 1907. but it is believed that the same reached the department at so late a date that it could not have proper consideration. Hundreds of persons have been enrolled on evidence less than was submitted in this case. In all justice Mary A. Crowder should be enrolled.

Crutchfield, George Washington (minor).
Ritter, David (minor).
Choctaws by blood. Indian Office files, Land 75115-1009. Department flies, 5-51; D-8008. These children are cousins, the former being the son of Ida Crutchfield, and the latter the son of Ella Ritter, deceased. These women were sisters. Ella Ritter died too early to be enrolled, but the name of Ida Crutchfield was placed upon the final rolls approved by the Secretary. Subsequently her name was stricken from those rolls in supposed compliance with an opinion rendered February 19, 1907, by the Attorney General of the United States. Later her name was restored to the rolls, following the decision of the Supreme Court of November 30, 1908, in the Goldsby case (211 U. S., 249). The two children named above have the same natural right to enrollment that Ida Crutchfield has, but they were simply denied enrollment, without prior favorable action, by reason of said opinion.
