Burris Native American Heritage 1800's
Posted by: vida Murphy (ID *****4363) Date: August 27, 2008 at 11:01:45

My late husband was half Chickasaw Indian, his father was Callen Calvin Burris, born in 1925 died 2001, he was raised around the Filmore/Tishomingo/Johnston County area in Oklahoma, I found on the Daws Roll that his fathers name was Mack Burris (abt. 1887) at one time Mack was married to Ida Ayakatubby (1885-1964) but he left her and she re-married when Callen was a very young child, to a Tecumseh John.
I also found on the Rolls that Mack's parents were Bob Burris (abt. 1851) and Amy Underwood (abt. 1857, I also know that Bob Burris might have left Amy Underwood when Mack Burris was very small, because a lot of these children were raised by their grandparents, as it is listed on the Rolls.
Amy Underwoods parents were Weel Underwood and a Liney, I have no dates for either of them.
Callen Burris was full-blood Chickasaw, Both parents were full-Blood, but Callen was unable to provide a birth certificate so he was only listed as half-Chickasaw,
and his seven children all but two is living, are listed as 1/4th.
Ida Ayakatubby was raised by her grandparents as listed on the American Indian Census.
Ida's parents: Esia Ayakatubby and Patsey Immotichey (1856)
Patsey Imotichey's parents were Robert Immotichey and Moliean Wall (1836).
Roberts parents were: Labon Immotichey and Betsy (no dates)

Moliean Wall's parents: Alexander Wall, and E-la-hok-te (1816)

So if anyone has any interest or knowledge of this line of people please let me know, I am putting together my children a family book, and would love to have any input.
My children's dad died when he was only 35 and our children were only 7 and 9, so they have limited memories of their dad, that is why I am trying to put together a book for them and thier generations that follow.
Thank You in advance
