On attempting to research my grandfather's family and backwards, I've collected some rough information up to a point, but after that everything falls apart. In particular, I'm searching for information on what would be my great-great-great grandmother, Saphronia Earl Stewart (nee Nail). I know the following to be true:

She was born August 21, 1861 in an unknown location to father Joe Nail, and an un-named mother. She married a Rufe Stewart and died in Holly Creek, Oklahoma on May 18, 1935.

I'm trying to find out more information, such as her Indian roll number... I've searched as best as I can, but I've not found anything, and I'm beginning to wonder if she even registered at all. I know she was a full-blooded Choctaw, and that was considered a great embarrassment to the family. But I've also been told that she did have a three-digit roll number, somewhere around 740 according to family hearsay. However, going through any Dawes Packets, I'm not finding anything, and I'm unsure of how else to go about this... If she truly did register, then I would love to find a copy of any paperwork.


I'm also attempting to find out more about the Stewart family. I know originally they were on a farmstead, according to various sources, "below Idabel, Oklahoma, across the Red River down closer to Paris, Texas," as well as "near De Kalb, Texas." There was a murder over a poker game, which led the family traveling up across the Red River and into Oklahoma, around 1910-1915... Part of the family followed an Uncle, ____ Thacker Stewart, dropping the Stewart and taking on the surname Thacker and settling around Stillwater, Oklahoma. The other half settled around Holly Creek, Oklahoma and have been in the area ever since. I'm unsure of how to proceed past these events and find out more of the Stewart Family before the mass exodus into Oklahoma... As it stands, I might just have too little information to find anything else...

When my father had asked my great-grandfather (who would have been a child when the move happened), my great-grandfather maintained that this never happened, and instead the family traveled to Oklahoma from Kentucky. Of course, this one statement is in great contrast to the rest of the family's memories, as well as his own sister who says she remembered being woken up in the middle of the night as the men of the family were taking sheets from the bed, wrapping something in it and tossing that something in a wagon and driving off... : / It's a puzzle...

I'm sure asking my great-grandmother for information would be a great way, but... her health has been failing in a way that makes it extremely difficult to talk with her, which is really saddening... I'm making a solitary go at this, and would greatly appreciate ANY help that can be provided. : )

I think I found your Rufe in 1930 in McCurtain Co. OK. He is listed as a Steward in that census aged 83 with wife Saphronia aged 69. Next door is a Jewel Steward which I assume to be a son, aged 28. If you would like a copy of that census page let me know and I will e-mail it along to you. I don't know how accurate the Birth state are but it says Rufe was born in Tennessee and just that both parents were born in America. As to Sophronia it says she was born in Arkansas as was her mother, but her dad was born in Tennessee. Jewel was born in Texas.
