Info from William Blagg Cherokee application made based on his relation to Cherokee's on his mother's side. (the following is cut and pasted from my notes so forgive any errors)
Made in 1896
William was 56.
His son John made application for himself and children Edna and Charlie.
William's two daughters' Ellen Blagg Dwyer and
Other Children are listed on wither their parents or William's own Apllication.
Mandie?? (hard to read) 10
There are two Williams so watch ages.
Several application affidavits confirm William's father as Israel Blagg and his mother as Patsy Heaton who died prior to witnesses meeting family.She was descended from Oochalah.She died no later than 1856 (George Fields affadavit, he'd known them for 40 years and she was dead when they met.-- other info has her dying in 1849 or so).
George Fields, 56, knew family 40 years.
D.D. Muskrat, 25 years old.Second Cousin of William.
J. A. Armstrong
W.C. Smith knew them 1 year.
JJ Fields, 44, knew them all his life.Second cousin, mother was "own cousin" of William.Says William resided in Indian Territory for several years prior to Civil War, then left during War, then came back and resides in I.T.
Timothy Fields, 34, knew all life. Second cousin, mother is "own cousin".
Info is on roll 37, pages 590 - 600 approximately.
Possible connections to look at:
Elizabeth Fields (daughter of Richard Jr.) m. John Blagg ukn.(Richard Fields was a cherokee chief) (also married to William Thompson)
Richard Fields (son of ezekial -- Elizabeth Fields Blagg brother) m. Elizabeth Jane Blagg -- had son richard timothy fields b. 1862.
Daniel Muskrat was married to Elizabeth Jane Blagg also. Son: Daniel Salix Muskrat jr.(Muskrat was also married to Martha Fields daughter of Ezekial, sister of Richard above)
*Also, John Monroe Blagg married one of the Richard fields sisters, Elizabeth Ann Fields. The Elizabeth Jane Blagg above might be either his sister or daughter.
If anyone has any more info on links between the Fields and Blaggs...it might help finding more about Israel's wife anme and ancestry.
