Biographical Sketches of the Chickasaw and Other Tribes

What follows is a listing of the biographies featured in the Chickasaw and a few other tribes sections of the book “Leaders and Leading Men of the Indian Territory” by H. F. O’Beirne. 

As in my earlier post, I apologize that the names are not in alphabetical order. However, you can do a search by pressing ”Ctl-F” to have the search box appear  and then just type the last name that you want to find.

Remember that just because the name and biography are in the list DOES NOT mean that a person is of Native American Heritage. 

At the bottom of the Chickasaw listing you will find a few sketches of the Kiowa, Comanche, Wichita, Caddo and Otoe Tribes. 

This completes the listing of the all the biographical sketches listed in this book.

  Good luck with your search!

Surname List-Leaders and Leading Men of the Indian Territory

What follows is a listing of the biographies  featured in the Choctaw section of the book “Leaders and Leading Men of the Indian Territory” by H. F. O’Beirne.

My hope is this information will be of help to others. The book is no longer in print and obtaining a copy can be very expensive, if you can find one. I was fortunate to obtain a copy many years ago as a reprint.

I apologize that the names are not in alphabetical order. However, you can do a search by pressing “Ctl-F” to have the search box appear  and then just type the last name that you want to find.

Remember that just because the name and biography are in the Choctaw section DOES NOT mean that person is Choctaw or for that matter of Native American Heritage. In fact, while typing this list I did notice that several people were listed as Cherokee and Chickasaw.

I will post the  Chickasaw list in the near future.  Good luck with your search!

William Talley-Chickasaw

William Talley was born in 1850 in Charleston, South Carolina. He moved to St. Paul’s Valley in the Chickasaw Nation in 1872.  After arriving to St. Paul’s Valley, he worked in the freighting business, which was very profitable. William was employed by the U.S. government carrying goods from Caddo, Indian Territory, to the Indian Reservation at Fort Sill. William drove cattle in 1877 from Erin Springs to Colorado and Wyoming, remaining in the territory for two years. In 1879, William settled on the Washita River, Indian Territory and secured his Indian right by Marrying Agnes Chigley. She was the daughter of Senator Nelson Chigley, one of the most progressive of the full-blood Chickasaws. William and Agnes had four children: Fannie, William, Nelson, TomPerry and Suda Bell, the oldest being eight years and the youngest three years. Agnes died February 16, 1888 at the age of twenty-six.  William had eight hundred acres under fence.

Biographical Sketches

A lot of my family research has been focused in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolina’s. I have become very interested in the Native American history of those areas and have wondered if I could have Native American heritage somewhere in my ancestors. The more I research in the early and mid 1800’s, the more I think it could be possible. No proof yet, but still looking.

I was fortunate to find a reprint of a book called “Leaders and Leading Men of the Indian Territory” by H. F. O’Beirne. It contains a brief history of the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes, their laws, customs, and religious beliefs, along with some biographical sketches of the people. 

As I read the book and time permits, I will post summaries of some of the biographical sketches of some of the people. I hope you find them interesting too!
