Funny how these documents break things down by sex and race, then. Did you even read them?I agree that it would be good to see the marriage document that the certified geneologist relied on. It would also be good to see the census documents that the hobbyist geneologist relied on.
Because, FYI, the early censuses didn't even ASK what the race was of specific members of the household. WTF?!
Yeah, champ. The census forms mentioned were from Tennessee, not Oklahoma.Now you might still surmise SOMETHING from that sort of data, if you made a bunch of unfounded assumptions, but WTF?! Oklahoma wasn't even a STATE until 1907, so it wasn't included in the census!
Now, hold on -- just a few sentences above, you said they didn't ask for race on those census forms.Well, maybe she was living in Tennessee as the hobbyist claims? Problem is, it appears that in the early census, members of assimilated indian tribes were listed as WHITE.
You have no idea what you're posting from sentence to sentence.
This is what you're relying on?Where did I get that piece of info.? From the link in the hobbyist's own article.

"Comments" of what? Like, internet poster comments? Oh, hey, THERE'S an unimpeachable source. Hey, I'm going to use DP posts as evidence from now on; you're estopped from objecting.The census records are only a valid proof if the census taker had the option to put Indian down for race. One of the comments states that assimilated Indians were listed as white at the time.
For some reason, whatever he linked to originally is inaccessible at the link currently (it won't scroll down); what you're referring to was posted days after his article.
I notice, too, that you ignored the links which show the purported claim by the son might not even exist, because no one can seem to find it.
