I am trying to verify information I got while doing some research. The actual story is true.

"George Adams had been rounded up and put in a stockade at Mulberry, Arkansas, Indian Territory in 1880. He was shot and killed while trying to get away from the white guards at the time that the government was rounding up all the blooded Indians, 10% and above, and herding them to the Indian territory located in Oklahoma. His wife, Amelia Reed was Cherokee or Choctaw."

We think she may have been Choctaw.

Amelia is Amelia Ann Reed, my 2nd great grandmother. She was born 8 Feb 1853 in Glaize Township, Miller, Missouri. The George in the story is her first husband, George M Adams, born 1847 in Perry County, Tennessee. I have checked the Dawes records, but could find neither there.

I would like to find out if there is anywhere that records were kept that might be able to show if Amelia was in fact Indian. Any information would be appreciated.
