Your story by Mr. Gideon Lincecum is just part of the Pitchlynn family history. Gideon was a cousin of Major John Pitchlynn Sr. and he stated that Mr. Pitchlynn was a good friend of the Indian people. He also lived very close to Major John before he died. Without the help of Major John Pitchlynn the government would have been more aggressive in over taking the lands in Mississippi. The Indians called Major Pitchlynn their friend and he was most influential in all the treaties and dealings with the government. In fact, most of the early papers complain about the mix-breeds being the ones who kept the agents from getting what they wanted from the tribe. In most cases, it was the full bloods who wanted to give everything away. The full bloods didn't understand the value of what they had. Mr. Gideon wrote very little about the Pitchlynn family. You can find much more at the Oklahoma University Western history Library in Norman, Oklahoma. I have Mr. Gideon's book and that first statement is no where in it about the mix breeds, etc......
