Charles H. Davis died too early to be on the Dawes or Miller Rolls, I think. He is on the Old Settler Roll.. Saline District family group 103 with Albert, Elizabeth, Amanda, Neosho, and he was survived by Son John Davis and daughter Nannie Wafford, both of whom probably lived at Fort Gibson. In 1851 the family looked like this: Mother Elizabeth Davis with children (probably children) Neosho, Amanda, and Albert. Elizabeth had one grandchild named George Beaver who I can'tsee the parent's name for and who was living as of 1870 who didn't show up in the Saline District Family Group as of 1851-- I presume that sibling of Charles H. Davis was out of the home by 1851 and deceased by 1896.

This information was taken out of David Keith Hampton's CHEROKEE OLD SETTLERS: The 1896 Old Settler Payroll and the 1851 Old Settler Payroll, which was obtained thru One Feather Books (They have an online website). It is self-published and not widely available, thus the reason for the access info.

By the way, does anyone know whether Fort Gibson will be having a candlelight tour this Christmas?
