Inquiry, Widow and Children of Tick-String

Fort Gibson, Indian Territory, February 9, 1871.

MADAM: At suggestion of Rev. J. B. Jones, Indian agent for Cherokees, I have to request that you will inform us, so far as you can, whether the widow of Tick-String has remarried, or died, (since the death of said soldier, formerly a private of Company B, Second Indian Home Guards,) and if either, at what date; also if he left any children under sixteen at the time of his death; if so, the dates of their births, and, if any of them are dead, the dates of their deaths. Also please say to your husband that we much desire his aid in correcting errors in the papers of widows of soldiers formerly of his company, and hope will find time to visit us here soon.

Respectfully, yours,
Special Agent United States Pension-Office.
Tahlequah, Cherokee Nation.
