Claude D. Davis
Query: My grandmother was carried on the 1910 Love co., Ok., federal census as 1/8th Cherokee and being born in Texas. Her name was Nora Bell Winningham and was born in the mid 1890'in Texas. She married my grandfather, Oscar Leroy Davis, in Cooke co., Texas in 1904. I think her father was Robert (perhaps Richard) Winningham who, according to the 1900 Cooke co., Texas census was born about 1850 in Arkansas. The 1900 federal census showed that he was married to a Ollie Burton. He was probably married previously judging from the ages of the children shown in the census. Their names were Tooge Winningham, George Winningham and Cora Bell Winningham. I think there were others. Nora Bell may have lived in McLennan county, Texas. Nora Bell died in Healdton, Ok. about 1917-18. Would appreciate hearing from anyone on this matter.

William G. Bates
Query: I am researching my families genealogies and have been told we have Seminole ancestry. In my research I have discovered that the only places this could be, so far, is with one of my original ancesters immigrating into South Carolina then marrying several years later however we do not have her full name. What is fastinating is that some places show her name as Edna, some others as Edney, and a couple of others as Ednay/Ednoy. While these last three are definitely not of English extraction I was wondering if there is a name in any of the Cree languages approximating this pronunciation. There is also on my grandmothers side her grandfathers with having the name of Oceola Weeks. While the Weeks name is possible considered common the name Oceola definitely is of Semanole/Cree deravation. We have little information on her as well other that she was from Alabama in the mid/late 1800's. Can anyone help with any of these.
