MILLER APPLICATION # 1917

Annie Ketcher nee Sawney

Washington Co., Evansville, Arkansas

*Admitted. Sister to MA # 1913, George Hilderbrand, (b. abt. 1840) and claims through the same source.

*( George Hilderbrand claims that his mother is Katie Hornet, who died about 1865 (per George Hilderbrand). Katie was married to Sawney 'Tah-lah-se-nah' De-dah-nuh-skee and after her death he married Sally Arch. However, Annie says she was born about 1850, but not listed on the Drennen, and her age is so much older than the rest of the children of Sally Arch's that I think that maybe Annie was raised as Sally's child, therefore she lists Sally as her mother, not Katie Hornet. That is the only way I can see that George Hilderbrand would list Annie as his half sister.)
