Information from which to determine the child’s right to enrollment appears not to have been received by the commissioner until March 4, 1907, when Mr. Bixby telegraphed the department and recommended that the name of. said child be placed upon the approved roll of minor Choctaw freedmen. The telegram appears to have not been received until March 5. l907. too late for said child to be enrolled.

Emma Harris claims to be more than half-blood Choctaw. The Indian interpreter at Hugo says she looks to be a three-fourths blood Choctaw. She is also partly of African descent. She has some knowledge of the Choctaw language. She claims to be the daughter of Nuby Folsom, a full-blood Choctaw, and Martha Jackson, who was of mixed Choctaw and Negro blood. Daisy Borshe is a full sister of Emma Harris. Both are now enrolled as Choctaw freedmen.

Harris, Thomas. (Probably a minor.)
Choctaw by blood. Files: Records of Dawes Commission; also statement of Maj. John Farr, made November 13, 1908, at office of district Indian agent, Antlers, Okla., Part I, Exhibit F, report March 3, 1909. This claimant is said to be the illegitimate child of Thomas Pitchin (or, possibly, Pritchler or Pitchlynn). The boy’s father was undoubtedly a citizen. He lived in the Apukshmubbee region. The claimant’s grandfather was a brother of Col. Thomas Pritchler. Maj. Farr knows the facts in this case, because he is a member of the same family by marriage. It is understood that Maj. Farr was at one time assistant district agent at Antlers.

Harrison, Carl.
Harrison, Brille.

Choctaw freedmen, new born. Files: Report of November 15, 1907, from Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes. It appears that applications were filed with the Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes on March 5, 1900, for the enrollment of Carl and Brillie Harrison. They are the children of Brigham Y. and Mary Harrison, whose names appear opposite Nos. 1953 and 3489 respectively, upon the approved roll of Choctaw freedmen. They are minors, aged about 4 and 3 years respectively, and were living March 4, 1906. Sufficient information was not obtained until March 4, 1907, to determine the right of these children to enrollment, and on that day Commissioner Bixby wired the department and recommended that their names be placed upon the approved roll of minor Choctaw freedmen; but the telegram appears to have not been received until March 5, 1907, too late for said children to be enrolled.

Choctaws by blood and intermarriage. Indian Office flies: Land 14387-1907. 21353-1907, 15812-1907. The majority of applicants named above claiming enrollment as citizens by blood were found to be entitled to enrollment as such in a decision rendered by the Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes, January 10, 1907, March 2, 1907 (326 p. c. book 372). the Secretary reversed the favorable decision theretofore rendered by Mr. Bixby. This adverse action was taken in supposed but mistaken compliance with the opinion of the Attorney General of the United States, dated February 19.1907. Said opinion had no application to these persons.
Number of claimants in this memorandum, approximately, 10.

Hodges, Melissa (minor).
Choctaw by blood. Files: See letter of January 13. 1909, from Charles Knapp, district agent, Hugo, Okla., and affidavit of Agues Stephen, transmitted therewith, on file in Indian Office. From the above it appears that this claimant is a full-blood Choctaw. Her mother was Sarah Pisuchubbi, roll No. 3471, approved roll. At the time of enrollment this child was with her grandfather, Solomon Jones, who thought that Sarah Jones would enroll her, whereas Sarah Jones thought Solomon Jones would take charge of the matter. In this way the child was left off the rolls. Her parents separated some time ago and her mother is now dead.

Chickasaws by blood, Indian Office flies: Land 76206-1906, Dept. I. T. I). 233SO-1906. The record in this woman’s case shows that she claims to be half-blood Chickasaw. It appears that her application for the enrollment of herself and children was refused because the names of the applicants could not be identified on the rolls theretofore prepared by the tribal authorities. It is probable that the applicants would have been found entitled to enrollment if the Dawes Commission had had jurisdiction to entertain their case upon its merits. The commission was compelled, however, to refuse the application for the reason that the act of May 31, 1900, limited the jurisdiction of that tribunal to persons duly enrolled or admitted as members of the tribes.
Number of claimants in this memorandum, 9.

Note.—The following cases are listed by name only to save time. The claimants fall within the usual classes and their cases, so far as investigation has thus tar disclosed, deserve further consideration for the reason that they have not been fully considered heretofore, or, if examined, disposed of on technical and jurisdictional grounds. (Files for all: Part I, report Mar. 3, 1900)

Howard, Isaac W., et al.

Howell, Charles.
Cherokee by blood and Cherokee freedman. Files: Part III, report March 3, 1909. The person named above is not an applicant for enrollment. On December 7, 1908, he made formal statement at the office of the district agent, at Vinita, Okla., to a representative of the Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes, that he had made investigation under the direction of the district agent, of persons who were entitled to enrollment, but who had failed to secure their rights, and that he had found a number of such. He then stated that he had found 5 full-blood Cherokees and 1 mixed-blood Cherokee, and that he had heard of 4 or 5 others that he did not have time to go see, these children being entitled to enrollment as new born. They reside near Braggs, or Draggs, Okla., about 8 miles northwest of Rose. Mr. Howell also stated that he had found “some Cherokees” close to Ketchum post office. There were probably 4 of these people. The reason these people failed to secure enrollment is found in the fact that their parents were members of the “Snake faction,” which opposed enrollment. Some of them received their deeds, but returned them to the Commissioner to Five Civilized Tribes. The names of these children were not furnished by the Indian policeman, but doubtless can be obtained by inquiry at the office of the district agent.
Number of claimants in this memorandum, approximately, 15.

Huffman, Mary. et al.
Choctaws by blood or Mississippi Choctaws. Files: Part I. Exhibit F. report March 3, 1909. Also records of Indian Office and Commissioner of the Five Civilized Tribes. Mary Huffman alleges that she is a half-blood Indian, claiming that she is the daughter of Frank and Kiltie Puscachumy, and that the former was a half-blood Choctaw, and the latter a half-blood Chickasaw. She says her mother’s name was Kittie Maytubbee. Mrs. Huffman alleges she was born in the Choctaw Nation and resided there eight years; that she then went to Texas, where she reared a family: and that she returned to the Indian Territory and has resided there for the past 18 or 20 years. The other claimants are related lineally and collaterally to Mrs. Huffman.
Number of claimants in this memorandum, 12.

Hyden, Eva Marguerite (minor).
Choctaw by Blood. Indian Office flies: Land 21075-1909. Department flies: D-7205: 5-51. This claimant is the child of Frank Hyden, whose name appears on the final roll of Choctaws by blood approved by the Secretary of the Interior, March 26, 1904. Her mother, Georgie Hyden, was restored to the final rolls by order of the Secretary of August 9, 1909, her name having been stricken there from without notice. The mother’s enrollment was by virtue of intermarriage with the said Frank Hyden. November 17, 1906. this child was adjudged entitled to enrollment, but being a “new born” her name was placed on a separate schedule from those containing the names of her parents. On jurisdictional grounds, and in supposed compliance with the opinion of the Attorney General, of February 19, 1907, this schedule was disapproved by the Secretary March 4, 1907, without notice or opportunity for hearing. Query: Did the decision of the Secretary of November 17, 1906, adjudging her entitled to enrollment constitute. In legal contemplation, an enrollment which she could not be deprived of without due process of law? At any rate she should have the same rights as her parents. Number of claimants, 1.
