Comments: I am searching for AGNES HARE who is my ggrandmother. Her maiden name may have been OLSON. She was born in 1898 or 1899 in the UP around Escanaba, or perhaps Marinette, WI. She gave birth to my father MARION FRANCES OLSON in 1913. She adopted my father to the BHIRDO family in 1915. She married a man named HARE. They had two daughters, DORTHY HARE (now MATHERS, living in Chicago) and ANNETTE (married NORTHRUP, then GOLDEN). My father did not know his mother, but was told by an aunt that she moved with her husband to an indian reservation, probably around 1930. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Location: Connecticut
Comments: I am enrolled Citizen Potawatomi. I am looking for family roots prior to the removals, but have gotten stuck four generations back. My great-great grandfather is David Rhodd #631 on the Kansas 1863 rolls, who was married to Julia Rhodd, also listed on the rolls as #632. They are parents to the orphaned children listed next, who were given Oklahoma land allotments # 68, 69, 70, & 71, at the Sac & Fox Agency. The children are listed on the 1887 Allottment Roll as Israel #111-age 10, Charles #218-age 4, Edward #226-age 15, Josephine #227-age 13, Alexander #554-age 24, and Henry (Harry) #639-age 22.

David and Julia were deceased somewhere between 1883 and 1887 when the allotments were made to the children via guardians. Place and date of David & Julia's deaths unknown at this time. This is why there's so little info available. The kids were absorbed by other families. Anyone have any leads on this?

I also have a copy of an Affidavit; State of Kansas, Shawnee County dated October 1, 1960, RE: Simmonds: Henry Rhodd is listed as father of Josie Ellen Simmonds. Henry's indian name is listed, but is quite blurred on the copy. I am guessing it says WES KAH. Is this name familiar to anyone? This document also confirms that Henry is son of David # 631, Kansas rolls in 1863.

The Census of 1875, Shawnee County, Kansas shows David Rhodd # 631 as being born in Iowa, and having come to Kansas from Iowa. This would put David and his parents at Council Bluffs sometime after the removal from Missouri.

The question is: Who are David's parents? Who are Julia's parents?

Hannah's father was Peter HART (born 1786, probably in New York), the first settler in the Tawas, Michigan, region.

Hannah was active in the Tawas community and was good friends with the local chief.
