My Great Great Grandmother is Elizabeth Walls (1895 – 1968). Her role number is 12429. Family legend states that she was murdered by white men because of her heritage. I am looking for information to support or refute this. I am also looking for any other information on her and my ancestors.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

you should probably first look up her obituary through interlibrary loan. see your local public library for that.

then you might look at a local newspaper near her home, around the time of her death and see if you find any information. this is an interlibrary loan idea, as many newspapers are on microfilm.

there are several newspapers online also. ancestry.com has several newspapers and your local public library probably has a subscription to ancestry.com.

her death certificate might be helpful. the state office for vital records would be able to give you a copy of her death certificate.

Dawes card 4475 shows Elizabeth Walls daughter of Jesse Walls and Pink Davenport.
Jesse Walls was the son of Thomas J. Walls and Eliza.
Thomas J. Walls was the son of Jesse Wall and Delilah McKinney. Jesse Wall’s father was Noah Wall, his mother was Delilah Folsom

Delilah McKinney’s mother was Katy, and her father or Brother was Jesse McKinney. Delilah had a nephew Simon E. Lewis who was on the charge of the Dawes Commission. I read several family testimonies in the Dawes, and I am thinking my gedcom is wrong but it may not be. Jesse McKinney was Simon’s Grandfather, and Thomas J. Walls was Simon’s first cousin. There is another Thomas Walls, my kinsman, who descends from Noah Wall.

In 1856 here is Dellilah with her children, in Cedar County
257 Deliley Folsom F
Emeley C
Edwin C
Thomas C

Jesse Mckinney is here as well
86 Jessee McKinney M
Elsey F
Simon C
Andrew C
Peter C
Li-vi-ney C
Silas C
Sinai C
Anney C
Sophyia C

Katy or Catherine McKinney was the mother, Jesse is the brother, that’s right…. heirs of Catherine McKinney in 1885-1889 testimony were..
Delila WAll heir of Catherin McKinney. Elsie Frazier in these records, but it is in Choctaw.
Simon Leis’s testimony.
Delilas Wall dead, husband dead, son Edwin Wall Thomas Wall. Kids of Jessie, Siney W., Silas, Anna Underwood, Phoebe Bell, Sophia dead.
yeah, wm russell and Louisa russel… these are Simon’s Aunts kids
Now, i think it goes
Catherine McKinney (married a Cherokee and died during CW)
Children
Jesse
Delilah
Elsie
Not 100% sure about this though, it’s been awhile since I read all the dawes files. I do recall Jesse is the grandfather of Simon Lewis.

This is super interesting to me. How would I find out what Eliza’s (The Mother of Jesse J. Walls, who was Married to Pink) maiden name was?

#4475, this is my family.

My name is Tracy Walls-self
Patrick J Walls-father
Jesse D. Walls-Grandfather
Edward Walls and Ruby Minnie Sossaman Walls-Great Grand Parents
Jesse J. Walls and Pink Walls- Great Great Grand parents.
Thomas Wall(s) and Eliza are my Great, Great, Great Grandparents.

I have traced back, but it appears that Eliza died a few years after Jesse J. Walls was born, and then Thomas Wall married Elizabeth Wall and had children with her.
I want to find out if its possible to find out Eliza’s maiden name, Thomas Wall is 1/4 Choctaw, but my Great,Great Grandfather, Jesse J. Walls was 3/4 Choctaw. Wouldn’t that have to mean Eliza was full Choctaw?

so she is not choctaw. other tribes were in GA, if she was native.

they are on the federal population census and not the indian population census because they live in a majority non-native area. but they say they own the farm, so they were applicants to the tribe that had chosen an allotment.

this ancestry.com family tree says these are jesse’s parents.

Family
Parents
Thomas Jefferson Wall
1841–1913
Mary Elizabeth Riddle
1840–1883

if jesse is 3/4 choctaw, the most likely idea is that one parent passed on 1/4 choctaw, was therefore 1/2 choctaw. and one parent was fullblood. there are other possible combinations.

this is from the same family tree. i don’t have knowledge of the truth of the family tree, as there were no documents on this person.

concerns ida wall, daughter of thomas j. wall and betty.
first, testimony of her husband, poker jack mcclure. see also the bottom note on the enrollment status on the first page of poker’s testimony.
point this note out to the tribe and ask for the dawes packet.

it appears to me that emily, ida and jesse were siblings, while tom jr. was a half-brother to all of them.

bear in mind that some family trees with these people do not necessarily agree on details.
