Very saddened to hear this.
It was apparently a big misunderstanding:
Be up Friday after work. Camping and hoping to do a little dancing. Leaving Sunday morning to take Mom some kinda fruit.
Will keep you in our prayers.
Hope you feel stronger and better soon.
‘Siyo Three Crows,
There’s a bank account set up for them. More details here:
Yes, some of the poorest of the poor. From the link:
“It is no secret that Buffalo County is the poorest county in the nation and that 78% of the people on our reservation live far below the poverty line; this is why we are reaching out to our Native Brothers and Sisters. Only you know the importance of retaining our land base.”
I agree that it is shameless, and feel it may be an example of poverty serving the greedy all too well.
Thank you for helping our own, here at home. Maybe none of us have the kind of money they need, but can at least help get a warm blanket or cup of coffee out there to those who make an honorable effort to stand up for Elohi. That’s how we work together.
Peace to you.

My favorite online store has some instructions for a 2 piece leather dress:
Might at least provide a starting point. They also sell patterns and leather.
Stacey is correct. That is GA-NC Collins’ site.
Actually I was wondering where you saw something about Joseph and David being called Tlostama and living in VA. Andrew who md Susan Lowery is pretty well documented. Finding their relatives in Wythe County is an interesting surprise. The family did have ties to VA, but I thought most were living in OK at the time of the 1850 census .
If I may, Roanoke is an independent city geographically located within Roanoke County. Mt. Airy, NC is in Surry County, which is adjacent to Patrick & Grayson Counties in VA. Aging Hwy 220 connects Roanoke to parts of NC. Seem to recall it being an old trade route or maybe part of the Great Wagon Road. Matrimony Creek (mentioned by Byrd) is right off 220, between Martinsville and the NC state line. In Henry County.
Shardel, am trying to catch up and jog my memory. There is a very large Ross family from VA that spread out pretty far and wide. The Anderson connection is what stands out to me. These are said to be related Scottish clans. Ross Chapell (sp) wrote a book about the first several generations of this family, which may be of help.
Shardel, here is the link to the book I mentioned:
Has an index of persons and of counties in the book. Wythe County is included, as is a John W. Ross.
Wow, Shardel. That’s a lot more than I knew about ’em. Thank you.
Yes, Turner on both sides of family. Where they came from, I do not know. But they do connect to the Ross bunch. Am only familiar with those who stayed in the Patrick/Henry/Franklin County area of VA. My gg grandpa was Thomas Turner, a Primitive Baptist minister from there. However, I do recall seeing some letters written by either a Ross or a Turner who migrated to Tenn or KY from Patrick Co.
Thank you Shardel. Would love to know who Thomas Turner’s parents were, if that’s in there. (Thomas md Matilda Daniel) Daniel Ross and Elizabeth Garth are supposed to be my ancestors. But, there are questions, because it does not match oral tradition, etc.
Anyway, something else you wrote caught my eye. You found Joshua Ross in Wythe Co. with parents Andrew Ross and Susan Lowry????? That is the oral tradition I was speaking of. Tlostama is the name handed down to us, but a cousin and I have yet to find anything linking him back to VA or our family.
Joshua’s parents went to OK, and most of the family appeared to have stayed there. One of the daughters married a VA man, though. Am very interested in looking at whatever you have found on them.
