intent to assist…
To my understanding of the matters of this discussion.

when researching,
Indians have five names ;due to many factors.

such as,
>names change during growth in maturity
>names change when married
>names change to reflect a “Status”,
amongst our historical tribe “CHOCTAW”

paying close attention is vital…

Indians were given English names to which the spelling of those names may change due to interpretation and the person to be recording the names on the related records.

Request a copy of the records
if applicable,
from our genealogy office
of the named ancestor
“MCR”[case-file-number]

searching in Ancestry.com is a good source for information.

search the Final Rolls of the Dawes commission to the Five Civilized Tribes
