after recent look into my family history we discovered that my great grandmother was a member of the choctaw nation. between our own investigation & the assistance of the tribe we keep running across the last name of humes. my great grandmothers last name was sally francis humes. my mother remembers as a child living in arizona (1950’s) that several native people came to her home looking for my great grandmother. my great grandmother became upset and refused to see them. shortly after she destroyed all documents of her history. i hope that this information can help in finding some lost relatives. thanks.
