I am looking for information about my Great Grandmother Edna Ross. She was a full blooded Choctaw. She was born somewhere around 1890-1900. Her father’s name was Sam Ross. She resided in Oklahoma. She married Eugene Staples, who was half Indian, possibly Choctaw. She had 6 children, Thomas Lee Staples, my grand dad Jimmie Wilburt Staples, born August 20, 1914 on a reservation in Okemulgee Oklahoma, Frank Staples, Sampson Staples and Gertrude Staples. Edna passed during Childbirth. I believe all of her children were born on a reservation. Eugene Staples was born somewhere around 1865 in Louisanna. Eventually they moved to Arkanas.
