Hi, looking for information on my ggrandmother, Ellen Huff Shepler, who lived in Collins, MO from 1905-1909-10. Her husband, James Shepler, died in Illinois in 1905 and she moved to Missouri with some of her children and lived with or near her brother-in-law, Smith Shepler. She moved back to Illinois around 1909 and died in 1910. It has been rumored in all of our family history that she was of Indian descent, possibly Cherokee, and that she applied for registration sometime between 1905 and 1909, probably while living in Missouri. She is orginally from Virginia.Can anyone help me with this? If she did apply, does anyone have a clue as to where she would have applied in Missouri?
Any information would be appreciated.
