Re: Family Ties - Blueye

Surnames: Blue Eye, Baptiste (Baptiste)
I too have been looking for information on Blue Eyes (Blueye, Blueeye, etc). My ggg-grandfather was Isaac J. Blue Eye, his son was Amos Blue Eye, he went to Oklahoma & enrolled himself & two of his 3 children (that i have verified) as Missippi Choctaw...his wife Celeste / Celestine didn't survive the trip. My great-grandma Ida Blue Eye was only 3 and her brother Adolphe was about 7. Other than a few small pieces of incomplete information I have been able to find next to nothing out about them. What happened to them, who they were descended from, etc. Talk about Elusive !

Anyone who has informatino on any of the Mississippi Choctaw / Choctaw Blue Eyes, any spelling please fill me in. I will happily share what little I have been able to verify. I have a bucketful of hunches and leads I'm trying to follow up on but not much is panning out. Unfortunately most of that branch of the family tree died young or disappeared entirely so there's no one left around who has any concrete information.

There a handful of Blue Eye's who are on the 1880 & 1900 Census from the same areas as Isaac's descendants but I have been unable to verify if they are related, or any additional source information for them.

My thanks in advance.

Oh, one last tidbit...Amos's mother was not Liney but a woman named Easter or Esther that it sounds like Isaac married after Liney (Liney was considerably older than Isaac). Her Choctaw name was Fil-e-ta-ho-na and Isaac's was Mon-tubbi. Easter had previously been married to a man named Baptiste, no English 1st name but Choctaw name is Hai-yak-et-ubbi. They had at least 1 child while married, Joseph Baptiste (MCR5132)...Amos's 1/2 brother. (MCR5133).
