  1. Cornelius Hart, husband of Elsie “Little Blue Hen” Beams, Roebuck was killed before 1840 when he was thrown from his wagon while delivering supplies to the agency. Elsie and Cornelius were early settlers of Doaksville near Fort Towson in the Choctaw Nation. Would he have been a member of the agency? If so, what agency? I am in front of a brick wall trying to find Cornelius Hart.
