A37. Major Ridge and Oo-wa-tie, or The Ancient, were full blood Cherokees of the Deer clan. They were full brothers and born in Hiwassee town. Susie Wickett was a half blood English Cherokee and Susannah Reese was a half blood Welch-Cherokee. Ridge was a Major of the Cherokee allies of the United States soldiers in the war of 1814. He was killed at about ten o’clock a. m. on June 22, 1839.

All of Oo-wa-tie’s children were known as Watie’s the first Oo, being dropped, except in the case of his second son Killikeenah or Buck, who out of gratitude for benefactions, adopted the name of Elias Boudinot and his descent have always been known as Boudinots instead of Waties.

A38. Stand Watie was born December 12, 1806 and died September 9, 1871.
