WOW....I'm excited to hear from someone. It has been a long time since there has been anything posted on this. Here is my family line as I have found it. I am at a brick wall at John listed as white My family is GGGrandfather John Guynes and Amanda (Manda)Choctaw Guynes They had two children that I know of Henry Guynes born 1864? and died Dec 6, 1902 in Okla Indian Territory. He had a brother William GuynesDOB 1863. We are Choctaw Henry and William were 1/4th Choctaw. My GGrandfather was Henry he married Sarah Odgen Guynes somewhere in Texas and they moved to Okla Indian Territory sometime in the mid 1880's. They have 7 children. I have all roll numbers of Final Dawes Rolls if needed of children and of Henry and Sarah. If you have any info on this line I would love some info.
