Heard this week about two "groups" of Native Americans from Rapides or nearby. The first groups is identified as "Flatwoods"--or their area was called Flatwood--and today I heard of the Clifton Choctaws--from the same area. Please let me know if you find anything on Native Americans of that area. shirleyroot2@yahoo.com

If you do find any information, would you please e-mail me also. I am looking for information on John Wesley Brown (either Choctaw or Cherokee)m Martha Elizabeth (maiden name unknown--Choctaw or Cherokee)--Married a Curry and had Lee Sabine Curry, then married John Wesley Brown and had my grandmother --Ollie May Brown, Glover Cleveland, John W. Jr, Delie Brown, Bertha Olivia Brown. Martha E. died as a Yorke/Yorka/Yorbe/York/. From what I understand, they shipped Ggrandfather Brown to some where on the Red River in LA where he was buried. No one seems to know where or why! Grandmother Ollie passed away when Mom was 3 yrs old, and Mama passed in December 1990. No other information is known. If you or someone could help, I would deeply appreciate it.

Choctaw settled specifically in that area you inquire about, of Hineston-Gardner and farther west. They were remnants of Mississippi Choctaw who fled the Wars with their cousins, the Creek tribe. King Brandy was the last known Chief of that tribe, he lived with a MARLER family late in life and was last located on the 1910 Indian Schedules of the U. S. Census for Rapides Parish and was over 100 years old when he died. He had many daughters, so names vary, and then there were many illegitimate births, in and outside tribal members.
The Clifton Choctaw may have some members descended from that group, for the Choctaw lived farther to the South of the Clifton's present location.
Other primary tribes who settled in the larger Rapides area were other Eastern Tribes: Appalache, Mobile, Alibama, Tensas, Pascagoula, Biloxi. These all came to the Rapide Post earlier than the Choctaw.

Earlene,

There is a tribe between Mora, La. and the Gardner Hwy. in which this road comes out to that Hwy. And the Clifton-Chotaw Indians live between there. Call my sister Joyce Rister and she can tell you about that. She lives at Mora, La.

Surnames: TYLER/CLIFTON
Since yours was the last message on this site, I will reply to you. I think that I have made a discovery in one of my VA families that could impact your geneology. You will need to check out the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 census records of Rapides Parish. Look for Rachel/Rachael Clifton and Edward W. Tyler. I have read that Rachael's husband was Daniel; however, she continued to use the name of Clifton even though she is living with Edward W. Tyler and she has several sons with the last name of Tyler. If you have ancestry, it's easy to check these census records.
In the census records, Rachel Clifton is listed as M as well as her children. In most census records, an M stands for Mullato, but it could probably be anyone with mixed race ancestry. Let me know if anyone would like to check into what I have found. If I am correct, this man would be the son of Edmund Tyler and Sarah Calthrope who was the daughter of Charles Calthrope and Eleanor Clifton. As you will see, the names run in the Calthrope/Tyler families. Edward had a brother named Jeremiah Tyler.
