August H. Tankersly and 4 children, pryor Creek, Okla. make their claims through his mother, whose maiden name was Sarah Mahala Satterfield or Sarah narcissa or Mary Satterfield.Her mother's maiden name was Lucy Ward, who was a half-blood Cherokee Indian.In this report the applicant's mother will be referred to as Mary Moss.She had a full brother by the name of Edly Satterfield.After applicant was born his father and mother separated and his mother married a man by the name of Moss.mary moss was enrolled by Chapman in 1851 #2037.She was enrolled by Hester #2521.Edly Satterfield, uncle of applicant, was enrolled by Chapman in 1851 #2048.John Satterfield, the grandfather of applicant, was enrolled by Chapman in 1851 #2069.John Satterfield's first wife's name was Lucy Ward.She was a half-blood Cherokee.After she died he married a woman by the name of Adalphia Ann Trammel who was a full white woman.Chapman shows that in 1851 Mary Moss was 26 years old and her brother, Edly Satterfield was 22.Then they were both living in 1835.John Satterfield was enrolled in 1835 (see page 45, 1835 roll) at the head of a family of 2, 1 half-blood Indian and 1 white person associated by marriage.The half-blood was a male and under 1 years of age.This must have been Edly Satterfield, as it could not have been John Satterfield, for Chapman shows him to have been 56 years old in 1851.Then he was 40 years old in 1835 and the white person referred to on the 35 roll must have been John Satterfield himslf.After his first wife died and he married Adelphia Ann Trammel he had a son born in 1843 by the name of William Henry Satterfield, who from the deductions heretofore made must have been a full-blooded white person.The said William Henry Satterfield has filed an application #17521.He was not enrolled in 1851, although his half-brother and sister were.He not being a Cherokee by blood and not being enrolled in 1851, his claim is rejected.All the other applicants in this group being Cherokee by blood and claiming through ancestors enrolled by Chapman in 1851 are admitted.
