Am seeking descendants of James Monroe MOORE, b. 14 Feb 1877, Logan, Arkansas, d. 16 Nov 1924, son of Joseph MOORE and Lucy_______. James is buried in the Cherokee National Cemetery, Fort Gibson.
James married m. Peggy HILDERBRAND on 4 Aug 1906. Peggy was b. 18 Dec 1888, in Cherokee Nation West (now Oklahoma), the daughter of Stephen HILDERBRAND and Mary Jane MESENHEIMER. Peggy d. 22 Jan 1916. Peggy was Cherokee Indian by blood. I’m not sure of James’ ancestry.
James and Peggy had the following children:
Leslie Isaac m. Dora ALEXANDER Margaret Oral m. Mert RUTHERFORD Garland Emmettm. Gertrude Anna GRASZ Mamie Etta m. Luther MCWHIRTER Ophelia Lee m. Wiley MATTHEWS
My interest centers around gaining information on Stephen HILDERBRAND, Cherokee Indian, b. 1833-d. 1899. Stephen’s family was slave owners and he parented a child, my gggrandmother, (Frances) with HILDERBRAND slave Susannah (Susie). Am seeking confirmation beyond Frances’ Dawes Commission Cherokee Freedman census card #63.
