The name my family knows my GGFAther by is Livingston John Williams. (However, it is possible that he changed his name for enlistment purposes.) According to his Army Enlistment document, he was born in Butte Center, Boyd County, NE in 1890. I have done some research on the area and found it to have been an area long occupied by Lakota people. It is suspected that he was Indian, but there is no proof yet . . . I just want to see what I need to do to find him documented there in NE prior to his enlistment. If you can help me find any documentation on him during this time, or anything about what was done with Indian/mixed-Indian children during this time and in this area, I would greatly appreciate it. (I suspect that his father may have been a soldier in the area.)

Thank you
