As she was lost in the land rush and found by the Indians, she wasn’t in the census’. Anywho, do you know anything about that? Do you know which relative picked her up or found her. I heard it was Rosa or Priscilla Belle, but I don’t know how accurate that is. I would sure be interested to know what her life was like with the Indians or more details of JWIII losing her daughter. Found any journals or pictures of this family?
