Looking for information on Betsey Lena. She is full blood creek according to the Dawes Rolls. Her father was Willie Lena. John Yarbrough was awarded guardianship of her and a boy named Thomas (Harjo). On a document from Dept. of the Interior, dated Nov. 10, 1899 she was 18 years old and listed as the daughter of John Yarbrough. Apparently her and Thomas took the name of Yarbrough. Thomas was listed as 9 years old, on a document from the Dept. of Interior, and listed as the son of John Yarbrough. Document dated March 19, 1901. Don't know why they took his name (Yarbrough). They lived in Arbeka, OK. His statement says he belonged to the town of Arbeka but his post office address is Wewoka,Seminole county, Ok. Don't understand that one either because Arbeka was suppose to have a post office. Would appreciate any help.
