Looking for any information Nat Fulsom and Susan Impson, both were deceased at the time their daughter Lucinda filled out the Dawes Rolls information.

Thank You,

Suzanne, I have received the packet from Choctaw genealogy, great information in it. What are you referring to when you say testimony? Nothing in the packet like that except the testimony of Thomas Bay Napier when he was applying to be enrolled by marriage to Lucinda.

Thanks for you help

Richard

i noticed that some of the testimony is in a book. i noticed that footnote.com were photoing more than just the application itself and testimony might be in the NARA file at fort worth or footnote or oklahoma historical society. i just wanted to tell you that there is more than just the application in the file. you can tell if footnote has scanned the documents for your family by looking at the access genealogy website for the dawes roll.

at present, this is what it says about whether the documents are scanned to footnote: Dawes Footnote

Footnote.com is presently scanning these records into their website. Unfortunately, this card has not been completed yet – please try back again in another week.

this book might be helpful. you can download it from google books:

you can search for names or locations with the search function on google books.
i strongly urge you to try to search for your family with this book because the heritage information available here is excellent.
reading pages 1-13 about tribal membership requirements.
