I am trying to find information on the family of Thomas P. Harris. His family claims to be from the Pitchlynn hertiage, but they were denied enrollment into the Choctaw Nation. If anyone has information on this family, please post it on the Pitchlynn web site.
Thomas Harris (probably a minor)
Choctaw by blood. Files: Records of Dawes Commission; also statement of Major John Farr, made November 13, 1908, at office district Indian Agent, Antlers, OK. This claimant is said to be the illegitimate child of Thomas Pitchlin (or, possibly, Pritchler or Pitchlynn). The boy's father was undoubtedly a citizen. He lived in the Apukshmubbee region. The claimant's grandfather was a brother of Colonel Thomas Pitchlynn. Major Farr knows the facts of this case because he is a member of the same family by marriage. It is understood that Major Farr was at one time assistant district agent at Antlers.
