Surnames: Kills A Hundred, Yellow Robe
I have an Authentic Sioux doll that was given to me by my grandmother....The Sioux Indian woman who made the doll whose name is "Little Thunder" Her name was "Susie Kills A Hundred" My grandmother told me that she was the daughter of Chief Yellow Robe. "Susie Kills A Hundred" was a member of the Rosebud District Sioux Nation, Shannon, South Dakota. I was wondering if anybody knows anything about her or her family.

For several years I have been searching for information regarding a Sioux Indian Girl, Anna Laura Shooting Cat (possibly my Grandmother) who attended the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania. While perusing their book,ISBN: 0-9638923-0-4, I noticed that Chief Chauncey Yellow Robe is listed among the Indian Chiefs who visited the School between 1879 and 1913. Perhaps if you made contact with the Cumberland County Historical Society you may learn more about the doll. I have heard some very sad stories about those Indian children whose brothers and sisters died en route to "school" in Carlisle from the Rosebud Reservation. I hope "Little Thunder's" story has a happy ending!! Let me know if this helps.

Is Anna Laura Shooting Cat also in this census record which you used for Chauncey? Are her parents listed?

Thanks for Anna Shooting Cat info.

I'm not clear on it's meaning however. If in 1930 she was 68, then her birth year would have been 1862? This does not match up with the 1879 Carlisle School opening with Annie L (or Nancy) being one of the first students at age four or five.

I don't think this 1930 census record is about my Annie L.
