Today I found a website that listed the names of Choctaw people who had received government scrip in lieu of land after the Treaty of Dancing Creek.
To be exact, the statement is as follows:
"List of Mississippi Choctaw Indians in whose behalf scrip was issued under the provisions of the act of Congress of August 23, 1842 (5 Stat. L., 513), in lieu of land to which they were entitled under article 14 of the treaty of September 27, 1830 (Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek) (7 Stat. L., 333-335)."
The website is http://theusgenweb.org/ms/carroll/choctaw/choctawscripOR.htm
One of the names is a name in my family tree, Pusk-co-chubbee.
Does anyone know more of the Pusk-co-chubbee family in Mississippi?
The names of my ancestors were Frank Pusk-co-chubbee and his wife, Kitty Maytubbe.
Frank's mother was a Huntubbe. Kitty had relatives who were Turnbulls.
All of what I know of them I have gleaned through testimony given by my ggggrandmother, Polly Mary Pusk-co-chubbee (aka Polly Mary Puscochummy, aka Mary Huffman), when she testified before the Choctaw citizenship court in Oklahoma.
Thank you for any help you can give.
Blessings on your searches.
