[NOTE: the "other transcriber" was David Siler's book "The Eastern Cherokee 1851"

[NOTE: The first Miller App. Reference beside Sam Owl's name apparently was questionable to Miller - App. 6206 was for Suate Owl, of Cherokee, NC, which says he was enrolled at Chapman #216 [see earlier this roll].

The second app. number reference is a correct one for the above family-jwj]
