I'm looking for any information about my GGgrandmother, AMERICA (MICKY) BAGLEY, born abt. 1850 TX, who married William Johnson Elliott in 1864 OK. Her parents are listed as MARY BAGLEY, born abt. 1828 KY, and WILLIAM JOHN, born abt. 1823 KY.
America's maiden name is listed in various sources as Bagley, John, Johns, and St. John. (In a family bible as America Bagley.) So, it's possible William John and Mary Bagley were not married?
William Johnson Elliott, America, and their children are listed in the 1870 Lampassas County, TX census, but I cannot find any other information about her (other than birthdates of children--mostly in Oklahoma).
The family believes she is Choctaw, although an aunt thinks she might have been Cherokee. The Kentucky birthplaces of her parents *seem* to indicate Cherokee? Given America's "Texas" birthplace, I wonder if her parents were part of the Trail of Tears?
