Roll-#8764, 1880 Authenticated Roll. Nancy married LOUIS DUNBACK
and later FRANK ZIEGLER. SAMUEL is listed on some of the INDIAN ROLLS
as "THADDEUS". I was told that SAMUEL operated a Ferry across the
ARKANSAS river and drowned in the the river. He is buried in the old SANDERS
CEMETERY near SALLISAW creek East of VIAN. The CEMETERY is located in an
old pasture. SAM does not have a headstone, just a flat rock near a pile
of rocks. Dec 97 I found the old cellar at great grandma NANCY ZIEGLER'S
old place located East of BRAGGS, East of the MUSKOGEE / CHEROKEE County
line on the CHEROKEE side. North of their place about one mile on the West
side of BIG GREENLEAF creek is where the old McCRACKEN CEMETERY was. It
was just North of McCRACKEN FORD where the old road used to cross BIG GREENLEAF
creek. I found a small grave surrounded by rocks that wasn't moved in 42
when the CEMETERY was relocated Southwest of TAHLEQUAH. The old McCRACKEN
CEMETERY was named after a man by the name of COOP McCRACKEN. He had several
hounds with which hunted fox and wolf with. I have a copy of a picture
of him on a horse on the street at BRAGGS.
This is my dad's grandmother, my great grandmother.
She was born in 1850
This is my grandfather Lewis, my dad's father.
He was a Deputy Marshall in Indian Territory. He was born in 1872 in Garfield,
