Unknown Full-Blood Indian and Minor Son.
Choctaws by blood. Files: Statement of Mr. T. M. Humphrey, made November 10, 1908, at office of district agent, Atoka, Okla. See Part I, Exhibit F. report March 3, 1909. According to Mr. Humphrey’s statement this old Indian was a full-blood Choctaw who at one time employed him to represent the case before the Dawes Commission. Mr. Humphrey says that he could prove by old Indians he knew and who knew him that he had resided in the Choctaw Nation for a number of years, and that in all probability he came to the Indian Territory among the early settlers from Mississippi, after the “Dancing Rabbit” treaty that his enrollment was refused for the reason that his name did not appear on the tribal rolls. Mr. Humphrey stated further that he refused to consider these cases after finding that the act of May 31, 1900, seemed to apply to them, and that he advised them that their case was hopeless, and that the Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes would not receive their application for the reason that their names did not appear upon the roll of citizens prepared by the tribal authorities; that these Indians resided near Legal, Okla., and that Mr. D. A. Lawrence, at Non, Okla., can give some information relative to them. Number of claimants in this memorandum, 2.
