JohnsonO'fields father who was called Capt. Oldfield because he was a light horseman police lead a detachment on the trail of tears. Oldfields wife died on the trail. 1842 claims show they lived at beck Creek. Anyone know where Beck Creek was? I think probally around Flint Creek and the Beck-Hildebrand Mill. My G-Gfather moved to the bend in the Grand River where his Children and part of the g-children were born including my dad. Since 1905 my family has lived on my g-ma Cherokee allotment in Washington Co.
