Thank you for your comments, they are fantastic and informative. I bumped heads with the whole Dawes ROLL "fraud", Census record "fraud", and Indian Census cover-up. Finally, I found my correct ancestors through much intense research and discovered the maze created by a complex organization called the Department of Interior aka the bureau of Indian Affairs. This entity has destroyed the federal census records of 1890 that had both Indian and american names which made it easy to Identify your bloodline. They also destroyed the military records in 1979 so many Native/Dark skinned people could not make connection to their benefits nor their ancestry which was included in the military records. I would like to talk more about this with you privately. Can you contact me on Hangouts???
