About 29 years of age and living November 16, 1910: male; half blood. This man is alleged to be the son of one More Ketcher, a full- blood Cherokee Indian, who died prior to enrollment, and a white woman, long since dead. This couple lived together only a short time. Andrew Ketcher, the applicant, is identified on Cherokee census roll of 1896 as No. 1942, being 15 years of age. Application for enrollment of Andrew was made to the Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes June 23, 1902. This application was finally “dismissed without prejudice” February 28, 1907, it being said in that decision that the Commission and the Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes “have diligently sought information which would enable them to determine whether or not said applicant was living September 1, 1902; and if so whether or not he was entitled to enrollment on that date. No information had been obtained tending to show the status of said Andrew Ketcher on September 1, 1902.” The testimony then submitted showed that Andrew Ketcher had been convicted of some crime and sentenced to imprisonment. February 21, 1907, the warden of the United States Penitentiary at Leavenworth advised the Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes: “There is no record in this penitentiary of Andrew Ketcher. One Ellis Ketcher, No. 2105, was received here from Tahlequah, Ind. T., April 29, 1900, sentenced to five years for larceny. He was discharged June 16, 1903.” These dates correspond with those given in the testimony as to the time the applicant was sentenced to imprisonment and the time of his return to the Cherokee country. The proof that the applicant was living September 1, 1902, has been supplied. It is believed this man’s case should receive favorable consideration.
