In Reply to: James Horton/Elizabeth Hicks update by Donald Horton of 6878

This by far not my line - but since I am Native American was curious about the assertins made

Where was Reuben born - what year -
The only Reubens I have noted in the "Old Cherokee Families" were born in:
1 1845 son of James and Mary
2 1865 son of William and Elizabeth

There were none listed that I noticed at first glance in the 1880 Census - but will have to recheck my books Monday-
There should have been a
James b 1854 - d 1916 OK (adopted White)
Martha (d) b 1877

The Horton's I can find were on the Dawes none listed on the Miller - so they were:
1. Old Settlers - not entitled to Miller money
2. Freedmen - also not entitled

Dawes Notations:
Horton, John H (father - deceased)
Horton, Benjamin F 1 M AS
Horton, Nancy Alice 1 F AS
Horton, William A 4m AS
Horton, Emmett L 6 M AS
Horton, Laura M 8 F AS
Horton, Rhoda A 32 F AS

This would be Rhoda A Summers, who married 1) Barker, Laurence L - had 2 children then married John H Horton - who died prior to 1906
There were other freedmen have not noted them here

There are a few Choctaw listed but have not searched them

Not trying to ruffle any feathers but am really curious - since my family is Fields and Hicks and Bigby
