SAMUEL ROBERT WILSON
Samuel Robert Wilson was born near Hartford, Sebastian County.
Arkansas, on November 1, 1861. His parents, John R. Wilson and Lydia
(Sellers) Wilson, were born in Alabama and came to Arkansas from
Montgomery County, Alabama, in the early part of 1861. Besides their
son, Samuel Robert Wilson, they had a daughter, Levannah, born in Montgomery
County, Alabama, on February 10, 1851, who married John C. Crawford
near Hartford, Arkansas, in 1871. John R. Wilson was a teacher and
served as a justice of the peace and also in the Confederate Army from
-4rkansas. For a time, he worked as a carpenter on a boat which operated
between Fort Smith, Arkansas, and Memphis, Tenneasee, the principal
cargo being supplies for the army. His wife, Lydia, (Sellers) Wilson,
died in November, 1863, and three years later (1866) he married a second
time, Elizabeth Heavener. To this union were born three children: a
daughter, Ella Wilson, who married Jasper Black; and two sons, Floyd
R, Wilson, and John R. Wilson, Jr.
Samuel Robert Wilson was two years old when his mother died and
oaly eleven years old at the death of his father (1872). At the age of
sixteen (1877). the subject of this sketch removed from Arkansas to Sugar
Loaf County (now included in Le Flore County), Choctaw Nation where
he settled. He came in a wagon with an Indian trader and lived for a
while with Jerry White, a Choctaw citizen who was Judge of Sugar Loaf
County. Judge White's son, Buck White, now living at Reichert in
Le Flore County, Oklahoma, taught Samuel Robert Wilson the Choctaw

There is a Robert Sellers, 25 b. AL working next door, the only other
Sellers around."  We are wondering if MARY was Molsey's middle name or if
census taker misheard her name.

If this IS the same family, have you located them in the 1850 census?

I have some information on the family of Matthew and Sarah (KING) WILSON
(Molsey's parents) of Columbus Co., NC and Pike Co., AL, if you're
interested.

Are we talking about the Young Sellers in 1850/1860 Jackson County,
Alabama?  One of his sons later was in Sebastian County, Arkansas.  I
have often wondered if this Young Sellers is a descendant of John
Sellers, brother to Robert and James Sellers of Burke and Chatham
Counties, NC respectively.  The name Young is used in all branches of
both brother's lines.

Based on where the parents of John Haggard and Nancy Haggard were born, my
assumption was that Sarah Sellers is the mother-in-law of John Haggard
rather than mother, making hr the mother of Nancy Haggard.

SAMUEL ROBERT WILSON
Samuel Robert Wilson was born near Hartford, Sebastian County.
Arkansas, on November 1, 1861. His parents, John R. Wilson and Lydia
(Sellers) Wilson, were born in Alabama and came to Arkansas from
Montgomery County, Alabama, in the early part of 1861. Besides their
son, Samuel Robert Wilson, they had a daughter, Levannah, born in Montgomery
County, Alabama, on February 10, 1851, who married John C. Crawford
near Hartford, Arkansas, in 1871. John R. Wilson was a teacher and
served as a justice of the peace and also in the Confederate Army from
-4rkansas. For a time, he worked as a carpenter on a boat which operated
between Fort Smith, Arkansas, and Memphis, Tenneasee, the principal
cargo being supplies for the army. His wife, Lydia, (Sellers) Wilson,
died in November, 1863, and three years later (1866) he married a second
time, Elizabeth Heavener. To this union were born three children: a
daughter, Ella Wilson, who married Jasper Black; and two sons, Floyd
R, Wilson, and John R. Wilson, Jr.
Samuel Robert Wilson was two years old when his mother died and
oaly eleven years old at the death of his father (1872). At the age of
sixteen (1877). the subject of this sketch removed from Arkansas to Sugar
Loaf County (now included in Le Flore County), Choctaw Nation where
he settled. He came in a wagon with an Indian trader and lived for a
while with Jerry White, a Choctaw citizen who was Judge of Sugar Loaf
County. Judge White's son, Buck White, now living at Reichert in
Le Flore County, Oklahoma, taught Samuel Robert Wilson the Choctaw

I STAYED UP LATE FOR ME TO READ A TABLOID, CELEB MAG AND HAD TO ASK KATHI TO TYPE THE LAST TWO PARAGRAPHS IN THE OK CHOCTAW BOOK AS I'D BEEN TYPING OFF AND ON ALL DAY. IT WAS ABOUT WHY THE NATIVES DIDN'T WANT TO BE FOUND BY THE GOVERNMENT AFTER THE BOTCHED TRAIL OF TEARS AND HID IN INDIAN TERRITORY, NOW ARKANSAS. DURING THE CIVIL WAR, BUSHWHACKERS CAME TO THE SELLERS' FARM NEAR HARTFORD, STEALING CATTLE, AND FATHER OF LYDIA SELLERS WILSON WENT OUT TO SEE, AND THEY KILLED HIM. MAYBE THAT'S WHY WE DON'T KNOW WHERE HE'S BURIED.?? SHE HAD 2 CHILDREN, LAVANNAH WAS 12 AND SAMUEL R. WILSON II ABT. 2 BEFORE LYDIA DIED INSIDE FORT SMITH, 1863/64 WHERE SHE'D GONE TO ESCAPE NORTH/SOUTH BATTLES. I DON'T KNOW THE DISTANCE BETWEEN FORT SMITH AND HEAVENER, OK BUT THEY WALKED IT. LYDIA IS BURIED NEAR THE OLD COMMISSARY BLDG OUTSIDE THE FORT. FIRST SAM BECAME THE CHOCTAW COURT TRANSLATOR AFTER HE LEARNED CHOCTAW SO I'M GUESSING HE WAS WHITE.

FOUND THAT A MATHEW KING ALSO WORKED AS TRANSLATOR ON A TREATY. I'M READY TO GO OVER TO HSE PC AND SEE WHAT ELSE I CAN FIND. I KNOW THERE WERE WILSONS LIVING NEAR SELLERS IN DEKALB, BOWIE CO. IN AN OLD CENSUS. GETS ME "FIRED" UP FOR THE CHASE.

This info was from the 1981 book, "Choctaw Heritage" with the Choctaw seal that I bought from E-bay written by Betty Jeanne ? Ward Poulin. b. 1924. I said I'd pay $50, they wanted more, and I upped it to $75, When it came I'd payed $175 and was delighted. I think I told you it was "home grown" as no proper index, and it needed editing. I had to read page by page. It has all the treaties, names of chiefs, translators. The Trail of Tears was told to her by grandfather, Herbert Zach Ward or Dave Ward. When the government wanted more land in 1902, the town was named Heavener, Choctaw Nation. Joe Heavener filled out the paper requesting a post office and that's how it got its name. She said she'd worked on it for 43 yrs.

Margie Sellers Allen lives in DeKalb, Bowie Co., TX which is about 12 miles from Idabell, OK and when state lines were changed, DeKalb had been in McCurtain Co., named for Chief Green McCurtain who signed the town plats before OK was made a state, 1908 ?. My mt. grandfather was white and Cherokee, and I keep running across names that I've heard all my life when visiting in DeKalb.

I scanned John Randolph Sellers pix to Troy Pate. Haven't heard if he got it. Would you please give me the URL when he sent you the unknown pix he had? I'll just print them all as saw my JRS as a young man, looking the same as I remember him except his hair and mustache were black.

Lydia Sellers that d. at Fort Smith, 1863/4 walked with Luvannah, 12 ys and Samuel R. Wilson. II, 2 yrs old from Heavener, Choctaw Nation to the Fort. We're wondering if the old script made an "L" from an "S", misread for Suvannah.

Will get back to book or hse PC later today I hope. Use txcux@msn.com as this is just a keyboard and TV screen in my bedroom once known as pool/guest hse

LUJUANA, thanks. Will include this message.
I believe all we/I have from troy is on his page =

Please give him credit for any pictures. Haven't heard lately.

Choctaw Heritage by Betty Jeanne Ward Pouling, 1981, Heavener, OK. pg. 311: Isaac, William, Paris, 1774-1838, m. white Mary Margaret Alexander and Choctaw Phoebe Taylor=11 children with William Austin Hickman, 1805 firstborn, and #8 being first Tabitha, no date. Samuel Fraser Hickman, b.1815 and 5th child.

Ibid; pg. 312/313: Samuel Fraser Hickman, b. 1815 m. Lucy Fille mor tubbe, b. 1820=9 children, 8 b. in the Bogue Chitto Clan in Neshoba Co., MS. Choctaw Nation. Second Tabitha (b. June 29, 1852, d. June 30, 1920) m. Zachary Taylor Ward (1852-1883)= 3 children: LuVincy Ward (1874-1958); James Ward (1878-Jan 18, 1898); Dave Ward (May 10, 1880-d. May 29, 1958)

Ibid: pg. 313: James Ward (1878-1/18/1898) m. Alice Robinson (b. Oct. 12,1877, d. April 24,1970) = one child, daughter Jimmie Ward (b. Aug 8, 1898, living in 1981)

Ibid: pg. 315: Dave Ward (5/10/1880-5/29/1958) m. Mary Augusta Crawford (b. 9/13/1881-9/10/1978)=9 children--second child was Herbert Zach Ward #828, pg. 181.

Have just found she started a better way of enumerating on pg. 315- and will scan tomorrow. I made an error in spelling of Lavannah Wilson (La not Lu), and left out that John R. Wilson m. Elizabeth Heavener, sister of Joe Heavener, after Lydia Sellers Wilson died at the Fort. They had 3 children, John R. II, Ella and Floyd, before John R. Wilson was killed from a fall from his steam saw.

E-mail #1 of 1981 book by Betty Jeanne Ward Poulin pg309 e first part of our family tree will be ISAAC HICKMAN whose son, WILLIAM HICKMAN, fought in the Rev. War.  To the best of our knowledge he had a white wife named  MARY Mc PHERSON  and a CHOCTAW wife named LETTICE COLE.
 
PARIS HICKMAN, a son of WILLIAM HICKMAN m. MARY ALEXANDER also PHOEBE TAYLOR of Mississippi so we have white wives/children and CHOCTAW wives/children.  These men enrolled their children as white on the Government census as at that time, Indians had      rights, and considered the      whites as savages.
 
SAMUEL FRASER HICKMAN, a son of PARIS HICKMAN, lived in the BOGUE CHITTO CLAN  IN NESHOBA county, Mississippi.  H.S. Halbert, a noted historian of the time, tells us that no whites were allowed in the BOGUE CHITTO CLAN, and W.W. Clairborne adds that no missionaries, whites, schools, churches were allowed as the BOGUE CHITTO CLAN as it was a Clan of Warriors located in CHIEF MOSHOLATUBBEE'S district in the CHOCTAW NATION.
 
SAMUEL FRASER HICKMAN m. LUCY FILLE mor tubbee of the CHOCTAW NATION. He spoke broken English or Choctaw when he came to visit the white side of his relatives in HARRISON Co., Mississippi
FILLE mor tubbee is the current spelling.  Earlier was PHILLE moon tubbee.  TUBBEE was a title and was always put at end of his name. It meant warrior who has killed or great warrior or hunters of the tribe.
 
In the late 1600s, ISAAC HICKMAN was an early settler of Welchneck tract, close to Society Hill, eighteen to twenty miles up DeeDee from Jerrie's Creek, Pennsylvania. He served in the militia during the expedition to Fort Prince George in 1759.  ISAAC HICKMAN moved south and married ELIZABETH HICKMAN.
                                                                                        CHILDREN:
                                                                    WILLIAM HICKMAN  b. 14 March 1732;  d. 17 April 1816

WILLIAM HICKMAN, son of ISAAC, SERVED IN THE Rev. War. He vowed to oppose the British on 15 Dec 1774.  (From the DAR Records.)  WILLIAM HICKMAN held the rank of Brigade Major.  Pay voucher of 16 April 1777 for $53.00."
 
Next will be pg. 310 for the Choctaw Hickmans. I should have done this as doc., but my TIA got me first  As this was "home grown", I've cleaned up what I could.  Margie, I'm depending on you  to see this gets to Marie. Now if I can stop falling, will try to finish what I can. Best $175 I'VE ever spent.
