Inquiry, Widow and Children of Sitting Bear

Fort Gibson, Indian Territory, February 10, 1871. Hon. E. B. FRENCH, Second Auditor: We have been requested to inquire whether bounty has been paid on account of services of Sitting Bear, late of Company G, Third Regiment Indian Home Guards. The brother of the soldier claims to be the heir, and has never received bounty. Wright’s book shows “claim filed January, 1866, on behalf of Dutch Canoe, son of deceased,” and that $113.90 was the amount collected. There is interpolated the following remark: “Not to be paid-fraud;” but whether the amount fraudulently obtained was refunded to the Treasury by the attorney does not appear. Also if additional bounty was paid Mariah Duck, widow of John, Company F, Third Indian Home Guards. Widow died before allowance of claim. Very respectfully, yours, GEO. E. WEBSTER, Pension-Agent, and Special Agent Pension-Office. [Second Auditor responds that Wright received money and did not...

Inquiry of Bounty for Vann, Clay, Webber, and Height

Indian Territory, February 8, 1871. SIR: We have been requested to inquire of you relative to the following claims for bounty, &c. Please advise us of the amounts paid, and to whom; also whether by check, or in current money: John Vann, late of Company A, Third Regiment Indian Home Guards; Joseph Vann father and claimant, says he has not received bounty. Wright’s book shows the following: “Amount collected, $165; claim for bounty filed July, 1867; action of Department paid.” Henry Clay, private, Company B, First United States (Kansas) Colored, (perhaps discharged from Seventy-ninth United States Colored,) applied for bounty through J. W. Wright. He has never received either original or additional. He was indebted to D. H. Ross, (Ross, Ganter & Co.,) of this town, to the amount of $85, and fears his bounty was improperly assigned to the Saint Louis creditors of that firm, together with many others, though he never authorized such an assignment. Major J. A. Foreman desires to know what amount was collected, or is due as arrears of pay to William Webber, Captain Company E, Third Indian Home Guards. Fore- man says Webber was under his command, and served faithfully until killed in action; that he never received pay for his five months’ service. Widow’s name is Margaret. James Height, Company C, Second Indian Home Guards. Widow, War-le-y-roper, says she received from F....

Pension John A. Foreman

Fort Gibson, Indian Territory, January 23, 1871. SIR: In response to request of John A. Foreman, late major of the Third Regiment Indian Home Guards, who has been notified that an application for pension under No. 101123, in his behalf, is pending at the office of the Commissioner of Pensions, we have to request that he may be notified of the condition and requirements of his claim through us. The papers in said claim do not appear to have reached the Indian files, probably by reason of the civilized name of the claimant, or possibly inasmuch as he formerly served in a Kansas regiment the claim may have been so designated.
