Mary Big Prairie/Nancy Sala or Soutus/Chenno
Posted by: R Williams (ID *****4389) Date: February 20, 2004 at 23:44:54

Mary Big Prairie was an allottee of the Hoopa Valley Reservation holding Allotment No. 124-T which she took in 1898. Mary was her English name and Big Prairie was a married name when she married a man named Charlie Big Prairie our of Klamath. She had a sister named Chenno and a daughter named Nancy Sala or Soutus who was born in 1849 who later married a Samuel Wilson in Big Flat in Del Norte County in 1861 at age 12. We believe Mary was in the Orleans and Weitchpec area during the 1860's and beyond. She died in 1905 somewhere in Humboldt County, possibly on her allotment. There was a probate hearing but I am unable to find out anything. She is my great, great, great grandmother and I'm looking for any information on her or any relatives of hers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
