About Our Family Research

Starting a family tree in search of the origins of my greatgrandfather John Page, born in Choctaws Nation (Mississippi) on 20 October 1822. 'Adapted' by a Methodist Minister famioy at age of 14 years and sent to Choctaw Academy in Kentucky. He was given the Christian name of John and according to Indian customs took the name of Page because he used many pages of paper to learn to read and write. Moved to Indian territory no Oklahoma, ordained as a Methodist Minister. Taught Indians o stay out of the civil war because it was not the indian affair. Union 'civilians' attacked and jdestoryed his home and kiled a family member. He then joined Confederate Army as a Major in the Choctaw cavalry. Died of a heart attack on 10 April 1876 in Howe Indian Territory. Sat on Choctaws Tribal Supreme Court as a Judge. Represented the Choctaws and Chjckasaws in Washington DC om retrieving the assets taken from the tribes for particpating in the Confederate Army. Direct descendants were engineers, attorneys, medical doctors, educators, and good ordinary people
