i know there are several compelube relatives around because there have been a few inquiries for these people.
you give no dates, locations, children in this post. you’re using hyphens in the surnames and i don’t know exactly what this means. is it a maiden name? a married name?
i’m guessing:
columbus compelube>nicholas compelube m. ethel mae pace>audrey ida compelube m. ? gann.

genealogists use names, dates, locations, children and spouses to match records. if you have a common surname, you need to give more information rather than less. if you post about women, it is helpful to include the maiden name and the married name and designate which one is the maiden name.

first of all, heritage and tribal enrollment are two different things. many times natives didn’t apply for enrollment because 1) they didn’t qualify, 2) they were philosophically opposed to enrollment, 3) they didn’t have documentation, or 4) they were mississippi choctaw and their ancestor had accepted land or benefits in lieu of tribal enrollment.

the dawes roll was taken 1896-1906, so you should trace your ancestors down to that time period. mostly, they had to be living in oklahoma by that time and agree to live there permanently.

if the name is common, you may find too many possible records.

the tribe has an excellent information to help you. it is found under genealogy advocacy.

i have collected many resources over the years. if you want to write to me, shamlet76@gmail.com and request the choctaw resource list, i will be glad to send it to you.

i am just a volunteer that wants to empower people to learn how to do genealogy.

Thank you for your help. and yes the names after the hyphens are their married names. I recognize quite a few of the names on the stuff u added. i live in pittsburg co, okla. and thats where they were also. My great gma Audrey was born in 1927 and died in 1993. She’s the only one i knew anything about.

if you go to ancestry.com and look on the family trees, there are 12 public trees with christopher columbus compelube married to nancy pusley with pictures.
if you don’t have access to ancestry.com, go to your local public library. they probably have a subscription.

genealogists usually enjoy hearing from cousins, exchanging information.

My great grandfather was John Leflore Sr. AKA John Compellebee. I believe this is a different spelling to your compellube or it was given to me mispelled. I am trying to find out why he would have two last names, He married Josephine Baker, any info would be greatly appreciated. One of his son’s went by otis Compellebee spelled this way.

maybe you should correspond with the tribe directly. i don’t know why your ancestor might have two surnames.

go to the services tab, then the enrollment department. they might know.
