Census work for Emily and her family 1920-1900:

1920-TX-Falls-Justice Precinct 4-ED 78-Sheet 11A-Page 194:

Polk, Emily Head F W 61 WD KY US US
Bone, Virginia E. Dau F W 27 WD
J. T. G-Son-M W 4 TX
Polk, Thomas A. Son M W 18 TX

1910-TX-Falls-Justice Precinct 4-ED 63(?)-Page 235(spellings are as shown)

Palk, Nelson Head M W 43 M 25 IL IL IL
Emmay Wife F W 50 M 28 8-5 KY KY KY
James Son M W 18 TX
Virgina Dau F W 16 TX
Thomas Son M W 14 TX

1900-TX-Lamar-Precinct 2-ED 72- Sheet 31 B-Line 60:

Polk, N. E. Head WM Apr 1862 28 M17 IL KY IL
Emily Wife WF May 1859 41 M17 KY KY KY
Susie Dau WF Feb 1889 10 TX
Jas Son WM Oct 1891 8 TX
Echo Dau WF June 1894 5 TX

Emily and Nelson m. ca. 1883 (M17). Emily, by 1910, had given birth to 8 children and 5 are alive in 1910 (8-5). Iím wondering, given their age difference, if Emily might have had a brief marriage prior to Nelson?

In 1900 Emily is living in the wrong area to have been included on the Dawes Commission Final Rolls for any of the Five Civilized Tribes. Thatís not to imply she was not Indian, just that she was not living in an area where she would have been enumerated as Cherokee or Choctaw.

Nelson POLKíS family, 1900-1860:

1900-Arkansas-Newton-Van Buren Township-ED 96-Sheet 9A-Page 133 or 183: (extremely hard to read):

Polk, James Head WM Jan 1839 61
Franklin M. Son 31
Millie D In-Law 41 AL
???, Blanche G-Dau ????

Same page:

Polk, James R. Jan 1875 25 M2 MO KY IL
Savanna Wife Sept 1884 15 M2 0-0 AL AL AL

1880-MO-Newton County-Dayton Township-T9-0705-Page 433A:

James R. Polk Head M Male W 43 KY Blacksmith KY KY
Mary A Wife M Female W 39 NC Keeping House NC NC
Nixon O. Son S Male W 18 IL At Home
Nelson E. Son S Male W 16 IL
Frank Son S Male W 10 IL
Nettie Dau S Female W 8 KS
Ellis Son S Male W 7 KS
James Son S Male W 6 Ks
Mary Ann Dau S Female W 2 MO

1870-Kansas-Woodson-Neosho Falls-Page 30-Line 19:

Polk, James 32 MW Farm KY
Mary A 30 FW IL
Nixon MW 9 IL
Nelson 7 IL
Franklin 2 IL
George R 1/12 KS

1860-Illinois-Clark Melrose:
James K. Polk 22 IL
Mary A. 19 IL

Migration pattern: Arrive in Kansas, ca 1870, from Illinois. Arrive in Missouri, ca. 1878, from Kansas. Arrive in Arkansas from Missouri, year unknown. Nelson may very well have gone to Arkansas prior to 1900.

I hope this is new and useful information.
Preston
