Mr. Prime:

I have recently been told that my 2 fr grfth. and his family, who were
Louisiana Choctaws were living on "a reservation" in NW La. "close to the
Ark. border" in about 1865-1870, going from there to Bright Star, Miller
Co., Ark.  I have never heard of any sort of indian community this far north
in La. at that time, and was wondering if you had come across mention of
this in your Caddo Parish research. Any leads would certainly be
appreciated.  Thanks.

Hi,

I am searching for information on Joseph DeGraffenried and Rose Mae 
Thomas DeGraffenried.  Specifically if you have the time to look for 
a census record for them.  I have no ages for them only their names.

They should have been residing at Shreveport ca 1901 as my Grandmother, 
Marie Jacqueline DeGraffenried was born July 4, 1901 at Shreveport.  I
 have never found them on any census nor is a birth certificate for 
her on file.  There were 4 other siblings but I don't have their birth 
dates, except for a brother:

Joseph DeGraffenried Jr
Sarah DeGraffenfried
Ivy "
Lafete or Lafayette born ca 1890.

Any help or suggestions appreciated.  I have never found them on any 
census, just know they settled in Oklahoma and died in the 1918-1919 
flu epidemic (the children survived).

Thank you!
