Connections between Blaggs, Fields, Muskrats based on Cherokee Apllication:
I think this is right but it's open to interpretation!!!
JJ Fields and Timothy Fields are sons of Elizabeth Jane Blagg and Richard Fields.
Elizabeth Jane is the daughter of John Monroe Blagg.
Richard Field's aunt Elizabeth Fields was the first wife of John Monroe Blagg.
Since Elizabeth (by relation to her sons) and William Blagg are named as cousins, this would seem to make John Monroe and Israel Blagg brothers which might help finally place Israel in the right Blagg family.
Daniel Muskrat on the application is either the son or grandson of Elizabeth and a relationship with Daniel Muskrat.This occured probably outside of marriage either before or after her marriage to Richard Fields.I am having difficulty figure exactly when out.
Richard and Elizabeth Fields are children of Ezekial Fields the son of Texas Cherokee Chief Richard Fields and Jennie Buffington.
I haven't placed George Fields yet.
Unfortuantely, known of this helps with finding more info on Israel's first wife.But the pretty good link to John Monroe and Israel being brothers I hope helps place Israel in the right family.
Rather than junk up the forum with info, I'll post updates on my blog, akansasfamily.com.
