We've searched the Dawes Rolls--No finds of yet.
Mary Elizabeth Mathews or Bettie was born ca-1849-TN
Married George Henry Brazell--Born TN--No marriage license found.
Nettie Mathews married WIlliam M Mitchell ca 1879-Have marriage record. Nettie born ca-1858-TN. All were found in the 1900 Chickasaw Nation Territory. We have William"s death certificate from California-list's Mother Bettie Mathis-Mother--Father George Brazell.
WE have all the boy's marriage license and death.
Have found all the girl's stones in Oklahoma. We just can't link Nettie and Bettie as sister's in any census.
Clum was a hobo. We can't find too much on him--He never married. Have no idea of where Clum was born--but he is remembered of being in Oklahoma. No mother of Nettie and Bettie has been found. Only on Netties death cerficate is listed James Mathis--No Mother. Kellie Goode messages state that the women spoke notheing but Indian--No english--WIllie Brazell is still alive-living in California. Bettie spoke no English at all. Nettie Mitchell died 1911 in Oklahoma.So what we have on the family is very extensive. We just need to know--WHO was James Mathis married to--AND WHO were their Mother??? WE have to link them together and we are blocked -blocked-!!! I have been checking every state for a James Mathis.I can't find any archives which list him. He may have had more children?? I have found George Brazell and Betty brazell +William Mitchell wife Nettie-both-1880 Dist 16-Prect-8-Grayson county, Texas
Sorry for such a long message.
Thank you God bless
