I’m looking for info on my grandfather. His name was Grover Lee Ragan. He was born March 13, 1906 in the Indian Territory of Oklahoma. His parents were Charles and Julia Ragan. I was told my grandfather was %100 Choctow. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Grover Lee Regan, born 3-13-1906 Indian Territory (Oklahoma) died 3-26-1985 Dallas, TX
Father= Charles Regan, born 1879 Mississippi
Mother= Julia Christian, born 1879 Illinois
Spouse= Zilpha Ola Walters, born 1900, died 1976 Coryell Co. TX
Daughter: Elsie Geneva Regan, born 10-20-1932 Coryell Co TX, died 11-6-2002 Waco, McLennan Co, TX

I do not find the Regan surname on any Dawes Rolls for the Five Civilized Tribes in Oklahoma. The name is not on any roster of the Mississippi Choctaw Tribe either. If Charles Regan was Indian, he did not register with any Choctaw Tribes I know of. Julia Christian was born in Illinois. There were no Choctaw Tribes from that region.
