I am looking for any information that anyone can give me about some of my family. I am going to post some names of family and if anyone on here recognizes any of these names, please respond by post or by email. I am, at this point, about 95% positive that I am a descendant of the Freedmen. My family is Littlejohn and Banks. I found, on the Dawes Rolls both of these names. Littlejohn is Choctaw and Banks is Creek. This is all from my maternal grandfathers side. My mother told me that my grandfather's mother looked pure Indian. She is not sure if she was, but Her maiden name was littlejohn. Now on my maternal grandmother's side, her mother also appeared to be pure Indian. My family is of white skin, colored eyes and straight black hair. But I don't know who is who or who came from where, but I believe back in the days of Freedmen, they were classified as "Mulatto." Anyway, I could go on and on because this is so interesting to me. I am of African American descent, but I would love to find out the Indian descent also. Here are the names that I have. if anyone recognizes any of them, please respond. Thanks......
Lavasse Littlejohn (Banks, Simmons)
Louis (Lewis) Banks, Lavasse's 2nd husband
Christine Noffa (Given Name) Taylor (Stepfather's Name)
Nellie Bell Davis Noffa (Taylor)Born Jan. 11 or 15 of 1910 in Arkansas or Missouri
Fannie Littlejohn or (Banks)
I have a lot more names, I just need to find them. Thanks in advance for any information on these names. By the way, my family's from Oklahoma. Okmulgee, Muskogee, and Tulsa. Probably other areas of Oklahoma, but that is all I know at this point.
