Notes from the past…

Yes, but was Dovie an American Indian?

Still don’t know. What led me to contact RAOGK to get the Hall/McBurnett marriage document was finding their names listed in the Chickasaw Nation Marriage Index. I assumed that since they were listed in this index, that one or both were Chickasaw Indian. Not necessarily so. Being in the Chickasaw Nation database just means that they were married in Indian Territory, what would later become the state of Oklahoma.

Never assume anything….
