Greetings, fellow searchers - and re-searchers -
Can anyone help me with my elusive ( hopefully not missing ) link?
I'm looking for a branch of the Starbuck tree that resided between the years of 1895 and 190something in the Vera/McFalls/Ramona area of Cherokee Nation.
Specifically - with a son named James or Jim, born around 1880 or so, that attended what was known as the Bivins school in 1896.I have a class picture of the school from that year showing Jim Starbuck, with teacher Retta (or Rita) Houser, and classmates including Myers, Holland, Duncan, Pelsue, Harmon and others. The school was later known as Eastlake.
On my great grandmother's interview before the Dawes Commission, dated Oct 10, 1900, she claims that she married a James Starbuck around May of 1898 or 99, and that he was the father of her son. I also have a birth affadavit signed by a Sarah Beffy that attended his birth.
On the 1900 census, I find my great grandmother in the Fredman home in Ramona, listed as divorced.
By 1905, she was living in Chanute, Kansas, had married a Harkness, and divorced again by 1910.
I know of Milton's family - that lived in Neosho county, Kansas and Ottawa county, Oklahoma -
I know of Isaac and Rachel's family - who populated portions of Kansas and Oklahoma -
and I know of Abram and Mary's family - from McLain county, Oklahoma.
All are good possibilities, but so are the branches from just over in Arkansas, Missouri, and Kansas.
Please, can anyone claim my James?
