Mr. Thomas Kerwin, thank you for your valuable information! Ray and I, his wife are so grateful because we are at a point where we are confused with all the similar names in the census. Native Americans had their names changed either on purpose or due to assimilation of Indian names to American names which poses a challenge to those seeking to find their ancesters. Sometimes is takes someone who is not related to the family to see through the numerous names and data to decifer the mystery! We will look in the places you suggested and use Mary's Weary name as a goal in cemetaries and other records. I think we are getting much closer to figuring out this enigma. Again, thank you from the bottom of our heart and God Bless You for caring......
