I seem to have hit a dead end. I traced my lineage to my great great grandfather, but can’t find his father’s name or a birth record for him. Do Cherokee babies born on the reservation get a birth certificate issued?
*My grandfather was Larry Gene Hill (1937 – 2001) Born in (Beckham County) Sayre, Oklahoma Died in Council Bluffs Iowa.
*Larry’s father (my great grandfather) was Adrian Hill (1913 – 1974) Born in Oklahoma Died in (Beckham County) Delhi, Oklahoma.
*Adrian’s father (my great great grandfather) was Archie L. Hill (1889 – 1974) Born in Oklahoma (possibly on the Tahlequah Reservation ) in Oklahoma. Spouse Annie J Hill (1891 – 1974) both died in (Beckham County) Delhi, Oklahoma.
I was unable to locate Archie’s name on the 1900 Dawes Roll. (He would have only been a baby/toddler.) I can’t seem to find a link to his father’s name. That is the one that would most likely be on the roll. Being in the Oklahoma territory, I would think that the possibility of his name being on the roll is pretty high.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
