    I do know a few Choctaws, mostly elderly, who might know something – but one needs to know names – otherwise, wht you have is an anecdote well known to many Native Americans … also, if you know anything about their mother – her name, for example, there’s the Dawes Roll.
    The sad reality, is, sometimes one never knows –
    Hopefully, someone’ll be able to help you find out for sure.
