About Shemotichicha McClish

Her name is listed in documentation on Dawes cards as Shim-o-te-cha and She-mo-ti-ci-cha, possibly the Choctaw word "shemachechi" which would make the name mean "she decorates it." A second alternative was offered by Dillon Moore. It could be "ish im oti cha" which would mean "starts a fire for them."

Documented spellings:

  • Shim-o-te-cha
  • She-mo-ti-chi-cha
  • Sho-mo-tic-cha
  • She-mo-tic-cha

Elsey ( Emma) McLish's mother was my the sister of his GGGG Grandmother not real sure if I will get the names spelled right But here is a try Pal-e-ya was his GGGG Grandmother is this the right family ? I have Elsey ( Emma)McLish"s parents as Sho-mo-tici-cka ( Mother)and Greorge as her (father) she was part chickasaw right ?

I have been looking over emails and files on my husbands family and it leads me to this name as some of the relation to some Folsom's . I am still looking for a Thomas Folsom and Jenny (?
