Hi I am great granddaughter of Miles Hagen Anderson and I am trying to just find out what Indian Tribe Miles was from. He left my great grandmother Sara Ida Cannady with 5 children one day I was never heard of again. My great aunt Leona Pearl Anderson was born in Madill, Oklahoma in 1905 but nobody talked about their Indian blood at that time due to fear of white man taking the kids from their family. They eventually headed to Canad where My grandfather George Anderson Leona’s youngest brother was born in Canada 1910. I would appreciate any help you can offer. thanks for taking the time to answer.

leona, emery, william b. MO – 1910 census

someone has done genealogy on your line. a very nice job.

sara ida cannady

Miles Hagen Anderson – born 22 Jun 1881 Stewartsville, DeKalb, MO. (i notice that this birthdate is june, not july, as on the webpage.)

with pictures.
marriage 18 Jun 1902 Denver, Arapahoe, CO

if you are looking for tribal enrollment, i don’t see miles’ name on the dawes roll. and i don’t see sarah cannady’s name there either. since miles had traveled to CO, he probably didn’t try to enroll in the choctaw tribe in oklahoma. he might have been a mississippi choctaw, a separate tribe. many mississippi choctaw did not qualify for enrollment.

oklahoma was indian territory at that time and didn’t become a state until 1907. it was predominantly native, so i don’t know what to say about the reason why people didn’t talk about being native while in oklahoma.

i don’t have a canadian database so i can’t check canada records. it appears he was in alberta, canada?

genealogists use names, dates, locations, children and spouses to match records. if you have a common surname, you need to give more information rather thann 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.

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.

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.

mississippi choctaw and choctaw tribe explained here:

i have collected many resources over the years. if you want to write to me, and request the choctaw resourcce 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.

by age, it could be his father.
but his father was in OK while his son was in MO?
i dunno.
and i don’t know if samuel=miles either.

the person who posted will have to look at the records found and see if any pertain to her relations.

Just googling and found this site. My great grandmother born 1842, was Marthan Canady/Cannady. Her daughter, my grandmother was married to Robert A Hagan. Grandmother had a sister named Ida Della Hagan.
Do these names connect with this family above at all?
