My 2nd Great Grandmother was named Vesta Bootes. She was born in 1881 in Hunt, TX. The Federal census of 1900 places her in South McAlester, Choctaw Nation with her husband Adolphus Clift. Vesta passed away in 1939 while living in Long Beach, CA. I know Vesta’s mother’s name was Dora Gray, born 1860 in Lawrence Illinois, but my family has no knowledge of Vesta’s father except that he was Native American. My family swears Dora and the father of Vesta were definitely married, but eventually divorced. Dora later remarried; a man named William Jessie Bethea. I have checked the Dawes Roll and found a female “boots,” but no male. I am a member of ancestry.com and have looked at many documents without luck. If anyone can help locate this mystery man in my family, I would be ever so very grateful! Thank you.

the trail of tears didn’t go through TX, although many natives left the reservation unofficially and migrated after the 1830’s. often these natives are referred to as mississippi choctaw. be sure and check the texas tribes in this post also. it is very unlikely that she would have been on the dawes roll but she probably didn’t qualify for enrollment.

maybe vesta knew who her parents were. social security came into effect 1/1/1937 and people had to submit birth certificates or delayed birth certificates to show proof of age. if you don’t have her obituary, you can probably get a copy through your local public library/interlibrary loan. she is likely to have had a death certificate in CA also.

i am wondering if this was her marriage license:

j. a. is a butcher.
vesta had 2 children but only 1 survives.
they were married 11 years and rent a house. this is another indication that she was not enrolled as she probably didn’t receive an allotment.

is this the son, perry? maybe with the grandparents?

i am having trouble finding vesta and adolphus in the 1920 census.

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.

start with what you know, gather documentation, then you can go backward in time. so get your birth certificate, your parents’ birth certificates and marriage license and then you can start on your grandparents. if someone passed away after 1/1/1937, they probably have a social security application on file. if you ask a government for a birth certificate, and they were born before 1929, they might have sumitted a delayed birth certificate. death certificates, cemetery information and obituaries are helpful. you can usually get a copy of an obituary, newspaper mentions such as birth of a child or marriage, through the interlibrary loan program – see your local public library for this. i usually start with the death and work toward the person’s birth. military records and pension records can be helpful. census records can tell you where they were at particular times. the census records up to 1930 are available, although the 1890 census was largely destroyed. the 1940 census will be public information in 2012.

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.

2 ways to search:
http://www.accessgenealogy.com/native/finalroll.php
this will let you enter partial names to get card#. click on the card# in the card column and you can see other names in that family.
other resources on the left and at the bottom of this webpage. native census records and databases are especially useful.

http://www.okhistory.org/research/dawes/index.php
this will give you card# (family group) and enrollment #. they have some native marriage records too. other oklahoma records listed at left.
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.

types of records available for native americans:
pages 366-369 in particular although the entire native american chapter is helpful.
The Genealogist’s Companion and Sourcebook:
Guide to the Resources You Need for Unpuzzling Your Past
Emily Anne Croom
you can ask for these particular pages from your local public library. if they don’t have the book, you can get the pages through the interlibrary loan program.
native american records are discussed in pages 352-386.

Tracing ancestors among the Five Civilized Tribes: Southeastern Indians …
By Rachal Mills Lennon
this book could be accessed through the interlibary loan program also.

always find the state archives. some records are online, some records are not. but many times you can find a record not found in other places. you want to see also about newspaper mentions for obituaries, births, marriages in particular.

check courts for probate, civil and criminal cases, marriage records.

if your ancestors lived on a reservation, they might not appear on a federal census because they were not taxed.

this book is a good read about the dawes roll and how they implemented it.
The Dawes Commission and the allotment of the Five Civilized Tribes, 1893-1914
By Kent Carter

good advice about native research:
http://jenniferhsrn2.homestead.com/research2.html

if your relatives came from a different geographic location or belonged to a different tribe, try searching google for the state and tribes. you might find a contact for a state-recognized tribe or a federal recognized tribe.

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.
