Family tradition is that my g-grandfather Charles Newton Pitcher (born 1870 in Benton Harbor, MI in Berrien Co. to Harmon Jones (Doc) Pitcher and Hannah Jane Baird/Tine/Jennings), had some Indian blood. Harmon was the son of Truman D. Pitcher.My research has uncovered the following: 1) Horace G. Pitcher (born ca 1862) and George Pitcher (born ca 1859) are found in the Deleware Indian District of the 1880 census as adopted Shawnee, an area that is now NE Oklahoma or NW Arkansas.Parents of Horace G. & George is unknown. 2) Horace G. Pitcher married Perlina Parks Jan 10, 1889 in Prairie City, OK and the marriage was reported in the Indian Chieftan newspaper. 3) After his death, on Jan 10, 1889,she applied for land on behalf of her five children.The Dawes Commission report of Cherokee Indians residing east of the Mississippi shows that friends of Horace's testified that he was 1/4 Shawnee and according to one person, "he looked it".The children were Viola D. Pitcher (born ca 1891), George B. Pitcher (born ca 1894), Ida P. Pitcher (born ca 1896), Charles P. Pitcher (born ca 1897), and Horace G. Pitcher, (born ca 1900).They recieved a land grant because of their Indian blood. 4) Records in Michigan show that Legrand Edward Pitcher, born ca 1850 to Horace Truman Pitcher and Margaret Van Camp or Margaret Kann, moved to Mason Co., MI after his parents death and attended an Indian school there.Horace was the son of Truman D. Pitcher and Betsy Jones. 5) When Cora Lynn Pitcher married in 1898 her marriage was reported in the Indian Chieftan newspaper in OK.She was born in 1869 to Henry Pitcher, son of Burret Isaah Pitcher, and was a grand-daughter of Truman D. Pitcher. 6) In 1910 there was a legal effort to determine the children of Truman D. Pitcher because of their linage from their great-grandmother Mary Worth.Purpose unknown to me at this time. If anyone knows of any Indian connections in the Pitcher family, please share them.
