Well, the Cherokee came from Eliza's Hargis grandmother. Eliza and her siblings and their children all have applications through the Guion Miller Roll. All their applications are stamped "paid," which the people at the historical society tell me means they were paid for land. It does NOT mean they had a roll number or that they even applied for a roll number. It means they were able to establish proof of Native American blood and that their ancestor was living with the tribe at a certain time period. From what I have been able to determine, Eliza and family lived in Missouri, near the corner of Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas. Her obituary was published in the Picher, OK paper so they may have been living in Oklahoma at that time. Some of her siblings came on in to Oklahoma and some stayed in the same general area where she was. As far as I am aware at this time, none of them went to Kansas, other than Picher being located close to the border between Kansas and Oklahoma. Hope this helps, Vicci
