Thank you Suzanne.
Sorry for the poor grammer. Yes, William Goins married Ada Baker and settled in Stigler. William and Adas’ children were; Roy, Elizabeth, James Harry (my grand father), Ed, Taze, and George. William has a role number and is captured on the Dawes role. Ada was of German decent. James Harry married Gladys Cooper, also Choctaw, and they had a son Billy James Goins, my father, and I am Billy James Goins II. I am a tribal member with a CDIB. I know that my great grandfather was not Walla Tonka because he died years after the execution of Walla Tonka of tuberculosis and is I believe buried in San Bois cemetary. The challenge is connecting the Goins name to anyone in that imediate area durring that era. Thank you for your advice and assistance.

the goins surname is a challenge. there were some in texas too. goings, goins, going, many possible variations.

do you have the enrollment application,, census card and testimony for both william and ada?

no year in the post. this is making it difficult to search because these names are common. we use county names rather than city names because records are usually at the county level.

you can correct the ancestry name index so that others can find your family. if you don’t have access to ancestry.com, you can go to your local public library. they probably have a subscription to ancestry and/or heritage quest, another genealogy database.

guy baker lives next door.

william owns the farm, b. ~1876 OK, parents b. OK

they have been married 12 years, ada had 9 children but only 3 survive.
he’s a farmer, owns the farm free and clear.

you can see that there is no positive consensus on place of birth for william, nor parents names. some of the people may have documents.

the other family trees didn’t have this census record. one of them had a different record with a william in the family but the dates were not correct for him.

this census record gives his place of birth as arkansas but the family tree says TN. anyway, you should write to others who have family trees and find out what documentation they have,, trade facts and stories.

Wondering if we might be related in any way. My great grandmother was Elizabeth Goins. She had a brother that is on the Dawes Roll at the same time as she registered that was named Hampton.
