About 20 years old and living November 15, 1910; half blood. Father: Barney Downing, full-blood Creek. Mother: Early Downing: white. Both father and mother died many years ago and before enrollment. It appears that application was made July 28, 19O4, for enrollment of Ambrose Downing, and denied because he was not identified on any tribal rolls of the Creek Nation and had never been admitted to citizenship by the tribal authorities. It appears from testimony taken November 15, 1910. and the further examination of the records that Ambrose Downing attended the Creek Orphan School located at Okmulgee In the year 1895. It is further shown that Ambrose Downing was recognized as a member of the Creek Tribe and paid his share of tribal payment of $200,000 by direction of the national council November 8, 1897. It is clear that Downing failed of enrollment because this record of recognition of his right by the Creek National Council was not brought to the attention of the Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes.

25. Lasley, Tobe.

About 27 years old: living November 10, 1910: male; full blood. Father: Wylie Lasley: full-blood Creek, who died prior to enrollment by the Dawes Commission. Mother: Linochee, full-blood Creek, who also died too early to be enrolled by the Dawes Commission. It appears from the testimony taken and the records of the Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes that the applicant was listed for enrollment on Creek Indian card field. No. 3071, under the name of Tobe Wylie. At the same time there appeared on the rolls of the Creek Nation another Tobe Lasley and it was determined when the Creek rolls were prepared that these two names represented one and the same person, and the name of the applicant herein was stricken from card No. 3071. It now appears that these names did not represent one and he same person, but that the applicant belongs to an entirely different family from the Tobe Lasley who is on the Creek rolls: and further that the applicant is living as a member of Oakehaye town, enrolled on the 1890 Creek roll as Tobe Willie, and on the 1895 Creek roll, a No. 77 as Toby Lasley.

28. Long, Lucy.

32. Mully, Simon.

Twenty years old at time of death in 1909; male; full blood. Jennie and Barney were present at the hearing December 13, 1910. It appears that Jennie Mully (or Chinhoker) is a full-blood Creek Indian about 60 years of age and that she is identified upon the 1890 authenticated roll of Indian citizens by blood of the Creek Nation, Ketchapatoka town, page 133, as Chimarhokee and on the 1895 roll, same town, at No. 158, as Chimhoka. It further appears that Mitchell. Barney, and Simon Mully are full-blood Creek Indians, the children of the said Jennie Mully, and one Mullie Nicco, now dead, whose name appears on the final roll of citizens by blood of the Creek Nation opposite roll No. 10107; that they are identified on the 1890 authentic roll of Indian citizens, Ketchopataka town, page 133, as “Ma-jai-la.” “Par-na,” and “Sar-ma,” and on the 1895 roll, same town, opposite Nos. 159. 160 and 161 as Mitchell Barney, and Simon, respectively. It further appears that they were listed for enrollment on Creek Indian field card. No. 3172, May 23, 1901; that Barney Mully is 29 years of age and now living; that Mitchell Mully died in 1909, about 30 years of age, and that Simon Mully died in 1909 aged 23 years. It further appears that on February 20, 1907, the Commissioner of the Five Civilized Tribes, having been unable to secure any information concerning these parties, dismissed their application (the listing of their names on the census card being considered an application) on the ground that “they died prior to April 1, 1899, or because of non-residence or because they had been enrolled under some other names.” On the list of 52.

Narchubby. See Archibald.

34. Perry, James.

About 35 years old and living November 14, 1910: probably full blood. Father: Gibson Perry, an Indian, but it is not definitely shown whether a Chickasaw or a Creek. Mother: Kunnussa, shown to be a Creek, a member of Okfuskee town, who died long prior to enrollment. James had lived substantially all his life in the Creek Nation, and testified through a Creek interpreter, not being able to speak the English language. No application appears of record. James Perry’s two wives were both Creeks, and relatives on his mother’s side are enrolled.

35. Perry, Susie.

Born November 10, 1905; living November 14, 1910; female; full blood. Father: Jim Perry, Creek-Chickasaw; not enrolled. Mother: Peggy Perry, enrolled as Peggy Henry, Creek roll, No. 8633; full blood.

This couple has on the roll two sons, Caesar and Huethlego, Nos. 7901 and 7902, and also a daughter, Sarah Proctor, No. 10003. The testimony is to the effect that this boy, Maxie, died about three years before the loyal Creek payment, which was made in 1904. It seems clear that he was living March 1, 1899, and therefore should have been enrolled. It seems this boy’s name was omitted by oversight. The father testifies that he did not select his own allotment, and that the entire family was arbitrarily allotted by the commission.

39. Raiford, Washington.

Born October 8, 1905; died December 25, 1908; male; three-eighths Indian blood, one-eighth Creek, and one-fourth Seminole. Father: Ossie Raiford, Creek roll. No. 5696; one-quarter blood.

45. Screechowl, Annie.

Thirty-five years of age; living December 13, 1910; female; full blood. It appears that this woman is married to a Cherokee and was listed on a census card with him and six of their children, but was denied enrollment in the Cherokee Nation because she was a Creek, this action of the Commissioner to the Five Tribes being approved by the Secretary of the Interior March 4, 1907, The testimony clearly shows that this woman is of Creek Indian blood. She claims both of her parents were full-blood Creeks, though some of the testimony indicates that the father was half Creek and half Cherokee. The applicant was recognized by the Creek authorities and participated in some payments of Creek money. She was denied opportunity to enroll us a Creek by reason of the late action upon her application for enrollment as a Cherokee.

46. Screechowl, Concharty Micco

The father states that he does not know who made application for his enrollment; that he did not have enough money to go, to Muskogee, and did not make any application for himself: and that he and his wife were arbitrarily allotted. This is the only explanation given for failure to apply for the children. All these children were present at the hearing.

50. Simpson, George.

About 26 years old at time of her death, December 30, 1906; female; full blood. Father: Robert Starr. Creek roll. No. 5596; full blood. Mother: Sarna Starr: full blood; died prior to enrollment. It seems that the name of Mollie Starr was listed for enrollment on Creek Indian card No. 2680; that Millie Starr, a sister, was on the same card; and that in making up the rolls these parties were considered to be one person and the name of Mollie was stricken from the card. For this reason her name was not placed upon the final rolls. The testimony shows clearly that there were two sisters of these names, and that Mollie lived until December 30, 1906. It is also shown that some of her children are enrolled.
