JOHN CLARKE SELF

J ohn Clarke Self was born in the Old Creek Nation in 1827. He was the fourth child born to John and Catherine T. (Berryhill) Self. He was just an infant when his parents moved to the Western Creek Lands with the first Party of McIntosh Creeks. When John Clarke was ten years old, in 1837, his parents moved to Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana.

His parents had stopped in Texas before going on to Louisiana.

John C. Self grew up in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. Sometime after 1850, he went to Rusk County, Texas, to visit his uncle William Berryhill, who had moved to Rusk County, Texas, from Tallapoosa County, Alabama. John fell in love with and married his first cousin, America M. Sophronia Berryhill. America was born in Randolph County, Alabama, in 1836. Her parents were William and Elizabeth (Nixon) Berryhill. Her father was a brother to John Clark Self's mother, Catherine (Berryhill) Self. Nathan Berryhill, who gave statements in the Creek Nation for the Self and Berryhill cousins, was America's brother. Georgianna (Berryhill) Wills was a sister to America. On some papers she is referred to as "America" and on some "Sophronia". She also had a cousin, Clarinda Sophronia (Berryhill) Self, who had married John Clarke Self's brother, Samuel C. Self. Clarinda was also sometimes called "Sophronia". This can be confusing on the Creek Indian records.

See Chapter Six for the parents of America M. Sophronia Berryhill.

Following is a copy of John Clarke Self's and America Berryhill's marriage license:

----*** <*> ***----

The State of Texas - County of Rusk - To any Judge of a Court of Record, Justice of the Peace, or regularly ordained Minister of the Gospel - GREETING: You are hereby authorized to solemnize the rites of Matrimony between JOHN C SELF and AMERICA M S BERRYHILL the consent of all parties interested having been made known to me, in conformity to the law, and make due return known, within sixty days from the date of this License, with your endorsement, showing how you have executed the same. Given under my hand and Seal of the County Court at office in Henderson this 24th day of Jan A D 1853 J L Swan - Clerk Endorsed Solemnized the rites of Matrimony between the above named parties Jan 25th A D 1853 Ben Smithers - J P Returned and filed Jan 26th 1853 J L Swan CCC Rusk Co.

----*** <*> ***----

After their marriage John and America settled in Rusk County, Texas. In about 1859 they met John's parents in Livingston, Polk County, Texas. John and Catherine Self had returned from the Creek Nation where Catherine had collected the Old Settlers Creek Money for herself, her children and grandchildren. John C. and America Self stayed in Polk County for a while, then, before 1862, they went to Sabine Parish, Louisiana. John and America Self settled in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, until after 1874. John Clarke Self either died in Sabine Parish, or he and America moved to Wood County, Texas, and John died there. America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self was living in Wood County, Texas, with her children in 1880. America was a widow. In the Fall of 1881, America and her children went to the Creek Nation and settled near Eufaula. They went to the Creek Nation with America's sister, Georgianna (Berryhill) Wills and John Clarke Self's brother, Eli Alfred Self.

America and her children applied for citizenship into the Creek Nation. Eli Alfred Self acted as their spokesperson in their citizenship case. America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self died in the Eufaula area, Creek Nation, Indian Territory, in the late 1880s. The children of John Clark and America Self were granted citizenship and are on the Final Rolls of the Creek Nation. Since both America and John had Creek Indian blood, their children inherited Indian blood from both parents.

John Clark and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self's children were:

1. John Robert Self was born in 1854, married first Jennie Hittler, and second, Sarah E.

2. Mary "Mollie" Self was born in 1858, married William H. Province.

3. William J. Self was born in 1860, married first Lou Katy, second, Deliliah, and third, Ivy Brown.

4. Martha "Mattie" Self was born in 1862, never married.

5. America Ann Self was born in 1864, married William H. Stewart.

6. Amanda Self was born in 1868, either married and stayed in Texas or died there.

7. Minnie Self was born in 1872, may have died in Texas before the Fall of 1881.

8. Samuel Clark Self was born in 1874, married Florence.

Following is a document concerning the Creek Nation citizenship of John Clarke and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self's children:

Muskogee, I.T. Nov 7, 1891 Department of the Interior Washington, D.C. Dear Sirs:--- I am requested to write concerning the following named persons who claim to be on the Creek Rolls, but who are refused the privileges and benefits of the Per Capita Payment by the Town Chief. The parties live in Sapulpa, Creek Nation, Indian Territory, and their names are: John Self, William Self, Clark Self, Mattie Self, Annie Self, Moses J. Self, America Steward, Amanda Steward, Mary Province, Burt Province and Mathew Province. These people claim I believe, that the Town Chief refuses in some way to have them enrolled for their Per Capita Payment for reasons of political nature. I respectfully submit the matter to you on their request, that you may give the case such attention as you deem proper.

Yours Respectfully M. M. Edmiston

John Clark and America M. Sophronia (Berryhill) Self's children:

JOHN ROBERT SELF

J ohn Robert Self was born in Rusk County, Texas, in November 1854. He was the first child born to John Clarke and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. John's parents were in Polk County, Texas, in 1860. Before 1862 his parents had moved to Sabine Parish, Louisiana, where John grew up. In 1880, John Robert Self was in Wood County, Texas, with his widowed mother. In the Fall of 1881, John moved with his mother to the Creek Nation. They settled in Eufaula, Indian Territory, after arriving in the Creek Nation. John R. Self, with his brothers and sisters, moved to Sapulpa, Indian Territory, by 1891.

John Robert Self married Jennie Hittler in Muskogee, Indian Territory, in 1894. Following is their marriage license:

I believe that Jennie died not long after their marriage. If there was a child I don't believe it lived. John Robert Self gave testimony in Okmulgee, Creek Nation, Indian Territory, for his cousin, Mary "Mollie" (Wills) Sutton, for her Citizenship into the Creek Nation. Molly was the daughter of John's mother's sister, Georgianna (Berryhill) Wills. Following is a copy of this testimony:

1896

My name is JOHN SELF. I know MOLLIE SUTTON. She is my first cousin. She was in a trial there with myself. There were three families and Z. T. Berryhill and Wills represented at the Court House. She was Mollie Wills and was duly recognized in the trial and was acknowledged in the District Court as a citizen by blood about 1887 or 1888. The trial was moved to the Supreme Court here. Rolly McIntosh was our attorney. The Supreme Court affirmed the District Court decision of the case. After the trial was over, in the Supreme Court, our attorney, Rolly McIntosh taken JOHN SELF, E. A. SELF, T. J. SELF, Z. T. BERRYHILL went before the Chief to have our names placed on the Roll and certificate of Citizenship granted us. The Chief said we were not entitled to them having our names placed on the Rolls was Certificate of Citizenship, that we have proved our rights by blood, not by adoption, that the Roll and Certificates were intended for adopted citizens and not Citizens by Blood. That is the reason why our names were not placed on the Rolls. Q. How many children has Mollie? Three. When were you admitted as citizen? 1883. Who was Justice? George Freeman. Who was Chief of the Court? Charles Smith. G. W. Stidham and Jackson Doyle was our witnesses. What was the cause of your case being brought before the Supreme Court? Myself, I moved from Eufaula District to over here and my sisters got married to white men and they were trying to make them pay permits was the reason. I got an affidavit from Charles Smith and he said it would be best for the Supreme Court to decide the case. Is MOLLIE SUTTON sister to JACK WILLS? Yes sir. You say Mollie Sutton is your cousin? On what side? On my mother's, HER MOTHER and MINE WERE SISTERS.

MARY "MOLLIE" SELF Mary "Mollie" (Self) Province

M ary "Mollie" Self was born in Rusk or Polk County, Texas, in 1858. She was the second child born to John Clarke and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. Mary spent part of her childhood growing up in Sabine Parish, Louisiana. She was living with her widowed mother in Wood County, Texas, in 180. In the fall of 1881, Mary went with her mother and brothers and sisters to the Creek Nation. They settled in Eufaula and Mary Self married William H. Province there early in 1882. William and Mary Province settled near Eufaula. Sometime between the time that Mary's mother, America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self, died in the late 1880s, and in 1891, William and Mary moved to Sapulpa, Indian Territory.

Mary "Mollie" (Self) Province and her children are on the 1891 Omitted Creek Roll and the 1895 Creek Roll. Following are the listing from these Rolls.

NOTE: Mary "Mollie" (Self) Province should have been enrolled as 1/4 degree of Creek Indian blood, as both of her parents were considered 1/4. TNC.

I didn't find William and Mollie Province in Creek County, Oklahoma, in 1910. They may have been missed on the Census, or, they may have moved elsewhere.

WILLIAM J. SELF

W illiam J. Self was born in Polk County, Texas, in 1860. He was the third child born to John Clark and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. By the time William was two years old, his parents, John Clark and America Self, had moved to Sabine Parish, Louisiana. William grew up in Louisiana and moved with his mother to Wood County, Texas. In the Fall of 1881, he moved to the Creek Nation with his mother, brothers and sisters. They settled near Eufaula, Indian Territory.

William married Lou Katy about 1882. Lou Katy Self died before 1891. William and Lou Katy had a daughter, Anna, and I believe a son, Moses J. Self.

Sometime before 1891, William J. Self moved to Sapulpa, Indian Territory. William married Deliliah (-?-), probably in Muskogee. William and his children were placed on the 1895 Creek Roll by William's brother, John R. Self. Following is the listing from this Roll:

MARTHA "MATTIE" SELF

M artha "Mattie" Self was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in June 1872. She was the fourth child born to John Clarke and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. Mattie spent much of her childhood in Sabine Parish. She was with her widowed mother, America Sophronia Self, in Wood County, Texas, in 1880. In the Fall of 1881, Mattie went with her mother, and brothers and sisters to the Creek Nation, Indian Territory. Mattie stayed in Eufaula, Indian Territory, until about 1890, then moved with her brothers and sisters to Sapulpa, Indian Territory. Mattie Self never married, but lived most of her adult life with her sister America Ann (Self) Stewart. Her nieces and nephews called her "Aunt Mat". In 1910 Mattie was in Jefferson County, Texas, with her sister, America Stewart and America's family. I believe she later moved back to the State of Oklahoma. Martha "Mattie" Self died in Oklahoma in 1933 and is buried in the Twin Mounds Cemetery at Glenpool, Oklahoma.

AMERICA ANN SELF America Ann (Self) Stewart

A merica Ann Self was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, 22 May 1864. She was the fifth child born to John Clarke and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. In 1880, America was in Wood County, Texas, with her widowed mother, America Sophronia Self. In the Fall of 1881, she went to the Creek Nation with her mother, and brothers and sisters. America Ann Self married William H. Stewart in Eufaula, Indian Territory, in 1887. William was born in Arkansas in 1858. Sometime before 1891, William and America Ann moved to Sapulpa, Indian Territory. America and her children were placed on the 1895 Creek Rolls by her brother, John R. Self. Following is this listing from the roll:

America and William H. Stewart lived in Mounds until just before 1910. They were living in Jefferson County, Texas, in 1910, in "the Village of Nederland." I believe they returned to Oklahoma later and lived there the rest of their lives. I don't know when William H. Stewart died. America Ann (Self) Stewart died in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, 25 February 1951. She is buried in the Twin Mounds Cemetery at Glenpool, Oklahoma. The inscription on her Headstone reads:

America Stewart died Feb 25, 1951 aged 85 yrs 11 mo 9 days

William H. and America Ann (Self) Stewart's children:

1. Martha "Mattie" Stewart was born in Eufaula, Indian Territory, 26 July 1888. Mattie died in Mounds, Indian Territory, and is buried in the Old Mounds Cemetery.

2. America "Ammie" Ann Stewart was born in Sapulpa, Indian Territory, in July 1893.

AMANDA SELF

A manda Self was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in 1868. She was the sixth child born to John Clarke and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. In 1880, she was with her widowed mother, America Sophronia Self, in Wood County, Texas. Amanda may have died in Wood County before her family went to the Creek Nation in 1881. I find no record of her in the Creek Nation.

MINNIE SELF

M innie Self was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in 1872. She was the seventh child born to John Clarke and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. In 1880 she was with her widowed mother in Wood County, Texas. Minnie probably died in Wood County, Texas, before her family went to the Creek Nation.

SAMUEL CLARK SELF

S amuel Clark Self was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in February 1874. He was the eighth and last child born to John Clarke and America Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. He was called "Clark Self." He moved with his family to Wood County, Texas, then in the Fall of 1881, he went with his mother, brothers and sisters to the Creek Nation.

Samuel Clark Self was granted citizenship into the Creek Nation and is on the Final Rolls of that Nation. Following is his Creek Census Card:

Dawes Name age sex DIB Father Mother No. Card No. 1106 P.O. Mounds 8 Nov 1899 3584 Self, Samuel C. 25 M 1/8 John C. Self Sophronia

NOTE: On the 1891 Omitted Roll and 1895 Roll, he is listed as Clark Self.

Samuel Clark Self married Florence (-?-) in Oklahoma in 1908. On the 1910 Census of Oklahoma, Clark and Florence Self had a newborn son, who had not been named at that time. They were living in Beggs, Okmulgee County.

SAMUEL C. SELF

S amuel C. Self was born in 1830, in the Creek Lands West of Arkansas Territory, in the area between the forks of the Arkansas and Verdigris Rivers. He was the fifth child born to John and Catherine (Berryhill) Self and the first child born to them after their move to the Western Creek Lands. Samuel was a young child when his grandparents, John and Elizabeth (Derrisaw) Berryhill, died. He spent his early years living near his aunts and uncles, and his creek Indian cousins.

Samuel was about seven years old when his parents left the Creek Nation and went to Nacogdoches County, Texas. They traveled with Samuel's Aunt Susanna and Uncle Baxter Self, and his mother's cousin, Thomas Berryhill and his wife Elizabeth. Thomas Berryhill settled in Nacogdoches County, Texas, the part that became Rusk County. Samuel's parents, and his Aunt Susanna and Uncle Baxter only stayed in Nacogdoches County a short time, then moved on and settled in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, where Samuel grew to manhood.

In 1851 Samuel C. Self went to Rusk County, Texas, to visit his mother's brother, William Berryhill and their cousin, Thomas Berryhill and his wife Elizabeth. Rusk County had been made from Nacogdoches County, Texas, in the 1840s. While there, Sam fell in love with his cousin, Clarinda Sophronia Berryhill, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth. Both Thomas and Elizabeth Berryhill had Creek Indian blood and were born in the Old Creek Nation in Georgia. I believe Elizabeth's maiden name was Grace. She and Thomas had married in the Creek Lands West.

Following is a copy of the marriage license for Samuel C. Self and Clarinda Sophronia Berryhill:

Samuel and Clarinda Settled in Rusk County, Texas, at first, then moved to Cherokee County, which had been made from Nacogdoches County in 1846. In 1857 they were living in Louisiana, according to the Old Settlers Creek Roll. In about 1859, they joined Samuel's parents, and brothers and sisters in Polk County, Texas. Samuel and Clarinda left Polk County, after 1860, and moved to Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. I believe they lived the rest of their lives there, although they were missed on the 1870 and 1880 Louisiana Census.

Children of Samuel C. and Clarinda Sophronia (Berryhill) Self:

1. Catherine Elizabeth Self, married James Thomas Izgate.

2. Martha Ann Self, married Hamp Vowell.

3. James Buchanan Self.

4. Thomas J. Self.

There may have been other children, but they aren't on the Creek Indian records and with the lack of information on the Federal Census, I have no record of them. Nathan Berryhill, in a letter to the Indian Department, speaks of two sisters of Catherine Elizabeth Self, but I have been able to determine only one, Martha (Self) Vowell.

Samuel and Clarinda, in about 1890, decided to return to the Creek Nation, Indian Territory, with their children and re-establish their Creek Nation Citizenship, and make their home there. They stopped by Vowells Mill, where their daughter Martha Ann and her husband Hamp Vowell owned the mill. Hamp and Martha Ann were to go with them. While at Vowells Mill, Samuel C. Self suffered a heart attack and died. They buried Samuel in the family cemetery behind Vowells Mill. Hamp and Martha Ann Vowell, and Samuel's widow, Clarinda, decided that they would go ahead with their plans to go to the Creek Nation. The night before they were to leave early in the morning, Clarinda went to visit Sam's grave. When she hadn't returned in a reasonable time the family went in search of her. They found Clarinda laying across Sam's grave, where she had died of a heart attack. The family buried Clarinda next to her husband. This cemetery, I believe, is what is now known as the Manasco Cemetery, at Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana.

Two of Samuel's and Clarinda's sons went to the Creek Nation in 1881 and applied for citizenship into the Creek Nation in about 1883. The Vowells followed later in the 1890s.

Samuel C. and Clarinda Sophronia (Berryhill) Self's children:

CATHERINE ELIZABETH SELF Catherine Elizabeth (Self) Izgate

C atherine Elizabeth Self was born in Rusk County, Texas, in 1853. She was the first child born to Samuel C. and Clarinda Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. She was in Polk County, Texas, with her parents in 1860. After 1860 her parents moved to Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. Catherine married James Thomas Izgate in 1874. Following is a copy of their marriage license:

NOTE: I am sure Catherine E. Self could read and write as all of the Self children were educated, so I am sure she could sign her name. TNC

James Thomas Izgate was the son of the Widow Mary A. Izgate. I don't know who his father was. James was born in Louisiana in April 1852. He and Catherine had settled in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, by 1880. Catherine's cousin, Nathan Berryhill, stated in a letter dated 10 April 1892, to the Secretary of the Interior, that Catherine Self, daughter of Samuel, had arrived in the Creek Nation on the 5th of April two years before (1890?) and applied for and received her Creek Nation citizenship. I don't believe Catherine E. (Self) Izgate stayed in the Creek Nation, but returned to Sabine Parish, Louisiana, and died there before 1900. I find James Thomas Izgate in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in 1900, with his and Catherine's children and a wife named "Ella", born in 1867 and several years younger than Catherine (Self) Izgate.

James Thomas and Catherine Elizabeth (Self) Izgate's children:

1. Calla Izgate was born in Louisiana in October 1874.

2. Nettie Izgate was born in Louisiana in November 1878.

3. A son (not named on census) was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in April 1881.

4. Lottie Izgate was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in April 1888.

5. Rosa Izgate was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, in November 1888(89?).

MARTHA ANN SELF Martha Ann (Self) Vowell

M artha Ann Self was born in Rusk County, Texas, 27 December 1855. She was the second child born to Samuel C. and Clarinda Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. Martha Ann was with her parents, Samuel and Clarinda Self, in Polk County, Texas, in 1860. After 1860, her parents moved to Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana.

Martha Ann Self grew up in Natchitoches Parish and in 1873 she married Hamilton "Hamp" Garmany Vowell. Following is a copy of their marriage license:

We, H G VOWELL and MARTHA ANN SELF, do hereby certify that we were joined together in the estate of Matrimony by the undersigning authority, in presence of the undersigned witnesses on the 20th day of February A D 1873. Whereof we hereunto affix our names (Signed) H G VOWELL - MARTHA ANN SELF - Attest A B Murray; W M Lynch. I do hereby certify that the above is correct this 20th day of February 1873 - Joseph Martin, Justice of the Peace

----*** <*> ***---

Hamp G. Vowell was born in Georgia 3 July 1837. He had served in the Civil War in the Louisiana Infantry in Company "C".

Hamp and Martha Ann settled in Natchitoches Parish. Hamp was a miller by trade. He owned a piece of property on Chori Creek and he traded it for a piece of property that Martha Jane's cousin, William Manasco, owned across the creek, on which William had a small mill. Hamp built a Grist mill and this was known as Vowells Mill. A community built up around the mill and today it is still known as Vowells Mill, Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. Although there isn't much there today, "Vowells Mill" still appears on the map.

In 1885 and 1887, Hamp and his brother, William Vowell, purchased land in Natchitoches Parish from Martha Ann's cousins: William Baxter "Buck" Self, John B Self and Lucinda (Self) Bridges, the surviving children of Baxter and Susanna (Berryhill) Self. This was land left to their children by Baxter and Susanna Self and in 1885 only the three were living. Hamp Vowell also purchased another piece of land from John B. Self. (See Chapter Eleven for a copy of these land transactions.)

Hamp and Martha Ann stayed in Louisiana, after Samuel and Clarinda Self's death, until about 1892, then they moved to the Creek Nation. Martha Ann (Self) Vowell's brother, Thomas J. Self, had gone to the Creek Nation in the Fall of 1881, with his uncle, Eli Alfred Self. Thomas filed an application for his Creek Nation citizenship and also filed an application for his sister, Martha Vowell, and her children. When Martha and Hamp arrived in the Creek Nation in 1882, they thought Martha's citizenship had been approved but they found that citizenship hadn't been granted for Martha and her children. Martha Vowell went to the courts to prove her Creek Indian lineage. Following are documents concerning her application for citizenship:

I was left off myself. When Martha Vowell came to this Country did she try to enroll her name in her town? Yes sir. Is she enrolled in Broken Arrow Town? She may be I have never seen the Town Roll for two years or more. There was once a Commission of three created who set her case aside. Was you a witness in her case before the Agent?

NATIONAL WITNESS - TESTIMONY OF ROLEY MCINTOSH [II]: There was a Commission of 3 appointed and I was on the Commission but did not know this lady but when investigating we learned who she was. I had witnesses in the case and I took the affidavit of Charley Smith he SAID THAT THE SELFS HAD PROVEN UP THEIR RIGHTS before Judge Freeman but this woman was not with them and I asked Chas Smith if this woman had proven up her rights and he said he did not know if she had. I took the affidavit of Chas Smith and Will Franklin and they said that this woman was not in the application and the papers that I had are in the Agent's office. And Will stated that this applicant's husband was a whiteman and she was also doubtful citizen and wanted to buy a place thinking they would prove up their rights. What did Will get for his place? He did not sell the place himself his wife sold the place as the bill of sale reads that way. He said I sold him the place on these terms with the understanding that they would prove their rights so the bill of sale was made in the name of her brother Tom Self. I remember the third person that was in the case. It was Geo Hall who wrote the bill of sale and Sam Logan wrote the note as well as I can remember. I saw the bill of sales given by Will in Tom Self's name. I asked him all about it and had them before the Agent. Will got me to collect the ballance due him on the place and this woman's husband brought the money and paid it to me himself is the reason I think Will's statement is alright. You say you took their case before the Agent. Did he say they were intruders, and notify them to leave? Yes by Wiley McIntosh an officer. You say the Agent said they were intruders? Did he say they did not have Indian blood? No it was based on Alien Act. It is said that I was an attorney in their case, I can tell you when Old man Self employed me it was done through Col D N McIntosh & McCombs as we were partners in the practice of law and I made a talk before the Council and they said go to the Dist Court Judge so they returned to the Dist Judge and I was not there at that time and some years after that case was referred back to the Dist Court OLD MAN SELF, TOM SELF AND GEN BERRYHILL were admitted and the Supreme Court decided that the action of the Dist Court was in accordance with law and after the Supreme Court Old man Self wanted to get certificate of citizenship from the Chief but the Chief would not give them certificates on the grounds that they were not adopted Citizens but recognized Citizens and told me to tell them about it but I told him I could not talk English and he told them so I guess he did, I could not understand what he said. Who appointed them Commissioners? Council.

  • NOTE! "Old man Self" was Eli Alfred Self, uncle to Martha (Self) Vowell. TNC.

All of Tulsa. 7th of April 1914.

William Lee and Mary Elizabeth (Vowell) Gilcrease's children:

A. William "Thomas" Gilcrease was born at Vowells Mill, Louisiana, 8 February 1890. He was the first child born to William Lee and Mary Elizabeth (Vowell) Gilcrease. When Thomas was two years old, his parents moved to the Creek Nation and settled near Eufaula. When Thomas was old enough for school he was taught by his cousin, Alex Posey, in a one-room schoolhouse. Alex Posey was the well-known Creek Indian poet and educator.

Thomas Gilcrease's Creek Indian Land allotment lay in the heart of the Glen Pool Oil Strike. When Thomas was fourteen, oil was found on his land. Thomas attended school at the Bacone Indian School from 1907 to 1908 and the State Teachers College in Emporia, Kansas. By 1910 he owned thirty-two oil wells. Tom started visiting museums and Libraries in his travels around the world and collected art and rare books. He educated himself in History and art. He lead a very clean life and didn't drink or smoke.

Tom Gilcrease married first, Bell Howell, a part Osage girl. After two children they divorced. By 1912, Thomas Gilcrease was a twenty-two year old millionaire.

Thomas Gilcrease married a second time. In 1928 he married Norma Des Cygne Smallwood. Norma was born in Bristow, Oklahoma, in 1909, the daughter of Edward M. and Mary Smallwood. Thomas gave Norma a four and a half carat diamond ring valued at $7,000. Norma Smallwood had been named "Miss America of 1926".

Thomas and Norma settled in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Thomas had a home built. They had a child and were happy for a few years, until Norma's mother moved in. From the time that Norma's mother moved in to the home with them there was trouble in their marriage. Thomas filed for a divorce in 1933. This was a very bitter divorce. Thomas got custody of their daughter and gave Norma a settlement.

Thomas Gilcrease spent the rest of his life with his business and collecting art and rare documents. His home in Tulsa is now the well-known "Thomas Gilcrease Institute of Art and History" in Tulsa, Oklahoma. William Thomas Gilcrease died in Tulsa 6 May 1962. He is buried on the grounds of Gilcrease Institute.

THOMAS JEFFERSON SELF

T homas Jefferson Self was born in Limestone County, Texas, in 1860. He was the fourth child born to Samuel C. and Clarinda Sophronia (Berryhill) Self. Sometime after 1860, Thomas' parents moved to Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, where Tom grew up. He married his cousin, Mary Jane (Self) Vowell, in Wood County, Texas, 15 December 1879. They were married by S. W. Jones, a Methodist Minister. Mary Jane (Self) Vowell was born in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, the daughter of Eli Alfred Self and his first wife, Minerva.

In 1881 Tom and Mary Jane went to the Creek Nation with Mary Jane's father, Eli Alfred Self, who was also Tom's uncle. They arrived in the Fall of 1881 and settled in Eufaula. Thomas and Mary Jane applied for citizenship into the Creek Nation. Both were of Creek Indian blood. Mary Jane's father was of Creek Indian blood and both of Thomas Self's parents had Creek Indian blood.

Tom and Mary Jane were admitted to Creek Nation Citizenship and they and their children are on the 1890, 1891 Omitted Creek Roll and the 1895 Creek Roll.

Thomas Jefferson Self died in Indian Territory about 1897. Mary Jane Self and her children are on the Final Rolls of the Creek Nation. Following is Mary Jane's Creek Census Card for herself and her unmarried children:

I don't know if Mary Jane (Self) Vowell, Self remarried or when she died.

Thomas Jefferson and Mary Jane (Self) Vowell, Self's children:

1. Clara Self was born in Texas in 1880. She was an infant when her parents moved to the Creek Nation. Clara married William F. Givens in Muskogee, Indian Territory, in 1894. Clara (Self) Givens died in the Creek Nation at the birth of their child. Following is the Creek Census for Clara's child:

2. Callie M. Self was born in Eufaula, Indian Territory, in December 1882.

3. Homer J. Self was born in Eufaula, Indian Territory, in April 1886.

4. Roxanna Self was born in Eufaula, Indian Territory, in March 1888.

5. Catherine "Katy" Self was born in Eufaula, Indian Territory, in February 1891.

6. Grover Cleveland Self was born in Eufaula, Indian Territory, in February 1893.

These four, Catherine Elizabeth (Self) Izgate, Martha Ann (Self) Vowell, James Buchanan Self and Thomas Jefferson Self, are the only children of Samuel C. and Clarinda Sophronia (Berryhill) Self, that I have found, but there may have been another daughter. Since Samuel and Clarinda Self, with their children, weren't on the Federal Census of Louisiana, I don't recognize any Selfs, who showed up later in the Census or Marriage Records, to be their children.

WILLIAM D. SELF

W illiam D. Self was born in the Creek Lands West of Arkansas Territory in 1832. He was the sixth child born to John and Catherine (Berryhill) Self. John and Catherine were living in the fork between the Arkansas and Verdigris Rivers, near the Old Creek Agency. William was about five years old when his parents moved to Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. William went with his parents to the Creek Nation in 1856 for the Old Settlers Creek payments. About 1858, they left the Creek Nation and stopped in Livingston, Polk County, Texas. William stayed in Polk County, after his brothers and sisters left there. William may have first married Mary Davis, who was living in his household in 1860. If so, I don't know if this marriage ended in a divorce or if Mary died.

William D. Self married Mrs. Callie M. Thompson in Polk County, Texas, on 14 October 1866. Callie was born in 1840 in Alabama. By 1880 William and Callie and their two children had moved to Navarrio County, Texas. Callie probably died in Navarrio County between 1880 and 1900. I don't know when William D. Self died. He was living alone in Limestone County, Texas, in 1900 and 1910.

William D. and Mrs. Callie Thompson, Self's children:

WILLIAM C. SELF

W illiam C. Self was born in Texas in July 1867. He married Ida (-?-) about 1895. They were living in Dallas County, Texas, in 1900. In 1910 they were living in Dallas City, Texas. William C. and Ida Self had one child:

1. Roy (Ray?) Self was born in Dallas, Texas, in March 1896.

IRA C. SELF

I ra C. Self was born in Texas in March 1874. Ira married Fanny (-?-) about 1896. Fanny was born in Texas in January 1877. Ira C. and Fanny were living with Ira's brother, William C. Self, in Dallas County, Texas, in 1900. They were living in Pala Pinto County, Texas, in 1910.

Ira C. and Fanny Self's children:

1. Leslie Self was born in Dallas County, Texas, in 1897.

2. Estelle Self was born in Dallas County, Texas, in November 1899.

3. William Self was born in Texas in 1902.

4. Meda Self was born in Texas in 1904.

5. Edna Self was born in Texas in 1907.

6. Ernest Self was born in Texas in 1909.

ALEXANDER MARION SELF

A lexander Marion Self was born in the Creek Lands West of Arkansas Territory in 1835. He was the seventh child born to John and Catherine (Berryhill) Self. His parents had moved across the Arkansas River at what is now known as Muskogee, Oklahoma. Marion was a small child when his parents moved and settled in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. I believe Marion stayed in Louisiana when his parents returned to the Creek Nation for the Old Settlers Creek Payments. He married Elizabeth Pantallion in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, on 4 February 1859. Marion and Elizabeth traveled to Polk County, Texas, where Marion's parents had stopped on the way back from the Creek Nation. They were there in 1860. Sometime after 1860, Elizabeth and Marion returned to Louisiana. Marion enlisted in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Following is the only Civil War record that I have been able to find for him:

Either Alexander Marion Self was killed or was sick and died at the beginning of the war. I have found no more information on him, his wife, or his children.

Alexander Marion and Elizabeth (Pantallion) Self's children:

1. William Self was born in 1859.

2. James Self was born in Polk County, Texas, in 1860.

TABITHA "BITHA" ANN SELF Tabitha "Bitha" Ann (Self) Lee

T abitha Ann Self was born in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, in 1838. She was the eighth child born to John and Catherine (Berryhill) Self. She was born soon after her parents had moved from the Creek Nation.

Tabitha Self grew up in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. She married Willis S. Lee in 1854. Following is a copy of their Marriage Certificate:

----*** <*> ***----

THIS IS TO CERTIFY THAT WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THIS STATE BY R. B. GOURLIE, MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL, IN NATCHITOCHES PARISH LOUISIANA, MARCH 5 1854.

WILLIS S. LEE his X mark - TABITHA SELF her X mark ALFRED SELF - WM. FOX - ROBERT B. GOURLIE

----*** <*> ***----

NOTE: Alfred Self is Tabitha's brother, Eli Alfred Self. TNC.

Tabitha and her two children were with Tabitha's parents in Polk County, Texas, in 1860. I don't know if she went to the Creek Nation with her parents for the Old Settlers Payments, or if she met them in Polk County, Texas, after they left the Creek Nation in 1858. I haven't found any record of Tabitha or Willis Lee since the 1860 Polk County, Texas, Census. Family information is that Willis S. Lee was shot and killed, but I haven't been able to get any information on this, or when and where it happened. Descendants of Willis and Tabitha say that Tabitha lived to be at least in her fifties and that she is buried in the Manasco Cemetery in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana.

Willis S. and Tabitha Ann (Self) Lee's children:

MELISSA ANN LEE

M elissa Ann Lee was born in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, in April 1855. Melissa is listed on the Old Settlers Creek Payment with her mother, Bitha Lee, in 1857. She was in Polk County, Texas, with her mother and grandparents, John and Catherine (Berryhill) Self, in 1860. I have found no record of her since that date.

AARON M. LEE

A aron M. Lee was born in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, in April 1856. Aaron is listed on the Old Creek Settlers Payment, with his mother, Bitha Lee, in 1857. He was with his mother and grandparents, John and Catherine (Berryhill) Self, in Polk County, Texas, in 1860. I have found no information of where he grew up, as he and his parents aren't on the 1870 or 1880 Census of Louisiana. Some of the other members of Tabitha Ann Lee's family were missed on the Census for those years. The next record that I have found of Aaron M. Lee is in 1900, where he, his wife and their children appeared on the 1900 Census of Natchitoches Parish, living next door to Aaron's aunt, Dorinda (Self) Manasco, Tabitha Ann (Self) Lee's sister.

Aaron M. Lee married Mrs. Mary (Wiley) Morgan in 1881. They settled in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana.

Aaron M. and Mary (Wiley) Morgan, Lee's children:

1. Martha E. Lee was born in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, in May 1885. She married Sidney Asberry.

2. Katy Elizabeth Lee was born in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, in February 1888. Katy married (-?-) Mobley. Their son, Charles Mobley, lives in Oak Grove, Louisiana.

6. James M. Lee was born in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, in December 1898.

DOCTOR F. LEE

D octor F. Lee was born in Louisiana 17 February 1862. The descendants of the Lee family living in Louisiana tell me that Doctor was a son of Tabitha Ann (Self) Lee. I don't know where he grew up, but it was probably Natchitoches Parish. Doctor married Amanda Williams on 3 January 1889. Amanda was born in Mississippi in February 1862. Doctor and Amanda Lee were living in Natchitoches Parish, close to Doctor Lee's aunt, Dorinda (Self) Manasco, in 1900. They later moved to Sabine Parish, Louisiana, and were there in 1910, living close to Doctor Lee's uncle, James M. Self.

Doctor F. Lee died in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, 31 October 1924. Amanda (Williams) Lee died in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, 13 August 1933. Both are buried in the Mt. Carmel Cemetery at Sabine Parish, Louisiana.
