Know this is an old posting so will make my message short:
My great grandfather was Thomas Foreman Wagnon 1851-1911, married Lucinda Marie Sixkiller about 1871, both were Cherokee.They raised tjeir family in Adair County OK.Am curious if the Adair Co History book contains any information on this couple.
In 1900, Thomas Wagnon is listed as a "Officer in Charge", as occupation, he and his family are listed on ths census along with 13 Inmats; 9 Indians, 2 Blacks and 2 Whites, all in the same household... My guess is he was running a Jail of some sort?
This was about 6 years before Adair became a county, the census only shows, Twp 16 North, Range 22 East, I can only say this was probably in Going Snake District, and maybe the future area where Adair was carved out of???
