Through all the years & all the various family branches.We all knew that Our Grandma Nancy Brown was Indian.The question was ...Was she Cherokee,Chickasaw ? The records seem to cross over quite a bit when it comes to her father James Brown.And then I found the CASE of "CHICKASAW NATION VS.SARAH PALMER " Where 29 People were taking their case to Court. All of them related to MARY MOSEBY

One of the 29 listed , my G.G.G. Uncle JONAS BROWN McCURLEY brother of my Grandma SUSAN YOUNGER.
In his RECORD of this suit ,he says that JONAS BROWN & SUSIE were his Grandparents.That JAMES BROWN was the Father of his Mother NANCY BROWN.

IKE WILLIAMS gives a sworn statement for Jonas Brown McCurley that he remembers five sons of JONAS BROWN by the names of Jonas, Jim,George,Donnelly & Henry
He goes on to say that :
GEORGE was called " Tesh-A-Humby" (Spellings from Court paper )
DONNELLY was called " Im-Ma-Ha-La-Tubby"
HENRY was called "Tul-Le-Char"
CHICKASAW JONAS was called "---------------- " ( I guess they could not read it,it is missing)

*** I have read record accounts from Books etc.of James Brown &
a "Im-Ma-Ha-La-Tubbe" (Note spelling for him from above) Both signing Chickasaw treaties. I can only guess he may have been "Donnelly" son of James Brown.

JOHN RITCHIE : gives a statement for Jonas Brown McCurley I knew JONAS BROWN at Allen,KY.I know PRISCILLA BROWN a Sister of JONAS BROWN and Aunt of Jonas Brown McCurley. ( My Grandma Susan McCurley Younger was born in Allen ,KY 1807)

About "JUDGE BROWN"
The mention of "Judge Brown" was passed down through most of our family lines as well.And somewhere I have a paper that mentions him in an article for one of my Aunts ,Daughters of Susan Younger. It was for Caroline Younger Ramge or Juliette Younger Babbit.I will have to find it. '


*I just received more documents this week from Utah ,photocopies from 1846 the information comes from Susan Younger herself and once again it clearly says McCurley...All of the old Documents etc I have say McCurley, McKerly..McCearly

This is getting long and I do not want to confuse anyone.So I will stop for now.
But I just thought I would point out some of the Highlights and share what I know.

You can see the connections of my Grandfather James Brown ,John Brown being baptized by his Cousin-,My Grandma Susan Younger in Nauvoo,Read the connections of Jonas Brown & Sons .See the McCurley Great Uncles being mentioned..Ezekiel ,Joseph etc etc..Some of the Great McCurley Uncles also had Indian wives and their children applied for or are on some of the Rolls I believe.

It is just my line that had no luck I believe.Yet it is my line that has some of the OLDEST known records available to us ,Signed treaties.,Hand written Church records etc.They were listed from the 1st known records.
But were denied Chickasaw citizenship in the end .If they only knew then...What we ,know now ! LOL :)

Bye for now,
Leni
