Yes, I know about the line. A lot of my relatives are card carrying direct descendant choctaw. I believe it comes from Betsy or Elizabeth McLaughlin (?) that what a legal document approved by the Choctaw nation legalizing Elizabeth and Curtis' children. Not sure why they would need to do that. However; marriages in the Nation weren't always well documented. Don't necessarily go by the percentage of blood on the Dawes an older relative told me that they probably lied about the percentage because during that time full blood indians were not treated well. So truth be known John was probably 1/4. It really doesn't matter the percentage mine is very small but I can trace it directly back to the Dawes roll and that is what the Choctaw nation recognizes.
