David. I'd like to learn more about Robert Wiles. Can you point me to sources? Does this come from from the Alice Robertson Papers?
Ann Eliza Worcester Robertson was the daughter of Samuel Worcester, a famous missionary to the Cherokee who was imprisoned in Georgia for refusing to leave Cherokee lands and later came west with the Cherokee over the Trail of Tears. Ann was teaching at Park Hill, Cherokee Nation when she met and married Robertson, a missionary to the Muscogee (Creek) at Tulluhassee in the Muscogee Nation. She was the first woman in the US to recieve an honorary PhD and her daughter, Alice Robertson, was the second woman in history to serve in the US Congress.
The mission school was near the little town of Tullahassee, across the Arkansas just north of present Muskogee. In the late 1800s, Tullahassee became a Freedman school.
