In Reply to: Ned and Daniel Girty by Jim Sellars of 181

Jim,
I think you may have some misinformation. According to the documented information that I have, I offer the following corrections to your message:

Son of Ned Girty: Tommie Girty, born Dec 11 1898
Mother: Lillie Girty White (deceased)
CORRECTION: Lillie Girty's race was white (her last name is not White)The Supplemental Application for Minor Children reads:"His mother's name was Lillie Girty white (dec)."
Additional documentation would be that she is buried in the Snake Girty Cemetery (south of Webbers Falls, OK)as Lillie Girty, Wife of Ed Girty, 1978-1899 (Ed is AKA: Ned)

Ned Girty guardian for Ah-goo-yah his insane epileptic sister.
CORRECTION:DAN Girty was the guardian for Ah-goo-yah his insane epileptic sister, as stated in a letter to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs dated April 2, 1907 and signed by Dan (X) Girty. Just for general info, I have seen her Indian name spelled two ways: 1880 Cherokee Census and Application made by her father, Snake: Ah-coo-yah and the aforementioned: Ah-goo-yah. Her English name is Martha as shown on her Census Card #7994.

Children of Daniel Girty:

Oscar 7-30-1892

Susie 1-25-1895 What is your source?
CORRECTION?? Susie's tombstone shows she was born Feb 6, 1895 and died 12-28-1928. She is buried in the Garden of Memories, Vian, OK. (I had your date, but I have no idea where I got it as I did not cite a source; however, after visiting her grave, I have changed her birthdate.)

McKinley 11-7-1896

Nora 3-4-1898 What is your source?
CORRECTION: Nora was born 11-18-1903
Documentation: Tombstone located in Garden of Memories, Vian, OK; Census Card #M3501; Agent Funeral Home Records, Sallisaw, OK; and Social Security Death Index as Nora Mize.

Nettie 2-21-1900 What is your source?
CORRECTION: Nettie was born 2-21-1901 Documentation:Birth affidavit in Daniel's Dawes Application; Agent Funeral Home Records, Sallisaw, OK; and Social Security Death Index as Nettie Payne.

Additional Info: During a visit with my great-aunt, Nora Girty Mize, several years ago, she told me there was another child of Daniel and Mattie Skaggs Girty:

Noah: Born 3-1-1899 and died 7-7-1900

I would be very interested in your sources for the info you posted.
