I am looking for any information on Chief Littlebear, Chief Bigbear, or Fannie Littlebear. they are all from the Osage Tribe. Fanny was also known as Neona. The only information I have been able to obtain about Chief Littlebear of Chief Bigbear has been through books. I have been told that I am related to them. I do have Fannie's death certificate, but that is all I have and the handwriting is almost unreadable. It lists a birthdate of 9-6-1840 and a death date of 9-26-1923. It does list Chief Littlebear as the father, but the birthplace of father, maiden name of mother, and birthplace of mother are not known. Her name at the time of death was Fannie Emery. She married a Samuel Emery and had a son named Samuel J Emery. Any help anyone can give me on this would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to e mail me at Litabug197@yahoo.com any information you are willing to share. Thank You.

Colita, my name is Sonia and I am suppose to be the great great grand daughter of Fanny Emery, that was her married name. She was married to Simmeon Emery not Sam Emery he was her son and my great grand father. Chief littlebear was my great great great grand father, he had two names big bear and littlebear. I am very interested to know where you found out that Fanny was neona. Please email me as soon as possible , you may also be related to me! I look forward to hearing from you Sonia

Sonia, Yeah, I realized after I posted that post on the message boards that I had said Sam instead of Simon (Simmeon). Fannie was my great great great grandmother. Her son Samuel was my great great grandfather, his daughter Josephine was my great grandmother and her daughter Betty is my grandmother. As far as knowing that Fannie's name was Neona, my mother and Samuel's other daughter Elsie found out that information years ago from going to different places researching the family. So from the looks of it I would say that we are related! E-mail me at Litabug197@yahoo.com if you would like.

Hi Colita" wow we sure are related," we are probably cousins, John Reed is my father he was Josephines son. Ive never seen him though, because my step father took me up to Wa. at an early age. I never knew that Josephine had another daughter named Betty, was she from the Neff marriage? Do you mind telling me what places they went to find out that Fanny was Neona, did they find any important info.and do you know who her mother was and if she, Fanny or anyone else in the family ever got on the tribal rolls? Did they ever find any proof that Fanny was Neona ,chief Littlebears lost daughter. Did you know that the towns people in Ks. wanted to name the osage mission after Neona. Its to bad that Josephine and Sam have died, I never even got a chance to know them! It sure is neat though to find out that I have more family, take care and I hope to hear from you soon!! Sonia

Hi Sonia! My name is Beckie Neff.I've just seen this post.You may know this by now but yes, Josephine was married to my grandfather Delbert Neff and had 3 children: Leon (my father), Betty Jo (Colita's grandmother) and Gene. They were raised by Elsie though. Did you ever find out who Fanny's mother was?

Please feel free to look at my family tree if you like.
