Surnames: KING
Hiram King is described as a grandson of Moshulatubbee by Ted Byron Hall in his book, "Oklahoma Indian Territory." Hall says Hiram was the brother of James Madison King and concluded these two men were sons of James M. King (born abt 1812). [Ted Byron Hall, "Oklahoma Indian Territory." (Fort Worth: American Reference Publishers, 1971.)]

The Dawes Census card (4665) for Hiram King (born 1854) shows his father as Jefferson King. The Dawes Census card (4522) for William King (also born abt 1854) shows his father as Jeff King. There is little doubt Hiram and Jefferson were the same person.

The James Madison King referred to by Hall is actually James M. King who has been proven to be a son of McKee King (Letter, San Bois County, [Choctaw Nation] I. T., 24 Feb 1878 by Green McCurtain to Editors of "Star Vindicator." McCurtain writes of conversation with Hon. James King (member of last council); King is quoted, "I did not go to council last fall in company of my father, Senator McKee KingÂ…") [Litton Papers, Choctaw Volume, 1872-1937, pages 247-248. Archives and Manuscripts Division, Oklahoma Historical Society.]

James Madison King (son of Moshulatubbee) is deceased by 17 Dec 1855 in a entry for military bounty land under the act of 3 Mar 1855 which lists "Anderson, age 17" as heir of James M. King in "Abstract List of Indian Applicants for Military Bounty Lands, Books A and B with Index for Book A." This was for James M. King's service from 27 Oct-12 Nov 1837 in the Seminole War. He served under Captain Adam Fulsom. [NARA Microfilm, Record Group 75, Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, The National Archives, National Archives and Records Service, General Services Administration. Washington: 1982.]

McKee King, also a son of Moshulatubbee, was born abt 1818 and, is listed as a surviving heir of the Chief in an 1875 claim for removal expenses. His name appears on a claim for military bounty land and his age in 1855 is listed as 37 years. He is also listed as guardian of the Chief's young son, Tecumseh, in an 1852 bounty land application.
