Kansas, Oklahoma

Locust Grove, Indian Territory December 11th, 1907.

Hon. Guion Miller:

Washington D. C.

Dear Sir:

In answer to your of November 19--. My father Indian name is Ah-gah-loo-ga(ya), the English is Whirlwind. My mother's Indian name is Chu-go-na-le, her English name Nellie. They both drew emigrant money in 1851 in Either Delaware or Saline District. I am not sure which-I am on Saline District (?) Roll as Susie Car-car-wee-1894 and Final Cherokee Roll by the Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes as Susie Davis nee Car-car-wee. My sister, Annie Ridge, is your application # 5606 & 1573- Mrs. Love Youngdeer and Nancy Saw-la-fee, both near Oaks, Oklahoma knew my people and came from Cherokee Nation East with them.

Respectfully,

Susie Davis

a.. TRANSCRIBER NOTES

b.. In the book 'Cherokee by Blood', volume 2, pg. 34, it states that Susie Davis is sister to Miller application # 1573, which is Henry Muskrat, who is actually Susie's sister, Annie Ridge's, son. So Susie is Aunt to Miller Application # 1573. Anyone with Henry's miller application, I would love to make sure of this connection. (I've yet to obtain his or his mothers.)

c.. I've yet to figure out exactly who the grandparents are that are mention in the attached letter,

"I claim on the share of both father and mother side."

My father's brother- Dar-gir-yah Died 1856

My grandmother- Gar-der-yer-e Died 1867

My grandmother- Wee-gih-ni Died 1858

Grandfather-Su-chi Died 1898

If anyone has any idea's how they fit in, I would appreciate a bit of help on them. Thanks
