Bounty Declaration of OCTI-AH-CHEE-HARJO

Show some words

Office Of Creek Agent,
Creek Agency, Indian Territory, August 4, 1870.

Some time since an application was made to Judge Wright by one POK-HEE for the back pay and bounty of her brother, whose name was OCTI-AH-CHEE-HARJO, and a private in Company G, First Indian Regiment, who died near Fort Scott, Kansas, about two years after his enlistment. Some Regiment, after the application the money arrived at Gibson, but in the mean time the girl Pok-kee had died, since which time a brother of the deceased soldier has applied repeatedly for the money, but he has been unable to get it. He now applies to me to know where the money is, so that he may make the proper application for it.

I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
F. A. FIELD, Captain, United States Army, Agent.
Hon. E. S. PARKER,
Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Washington D. C.
