Mamie Teel with schoolgirls and
Teacher at Tishimingo, Indian Territory
Teacher is facing students and has her back to us in picture.
Mamie TEEL (later married Jeff STUART) is in the
middle of the picture.
Not a real good picture, but it's one of the few
that we have of her in the Chickasaw Nation.
We are proudly descended from
Choctaw/Chickasaw/Cherokee lines. Mamie's
grandchildren recall that she still spoke
some Choctaw in her older age.
atDNA testing has further proven
that our family carries
Native American Indian DNA.
I estimate this picture to be taken ca. 1906, when
Mamie would have been about 14 years old.
By 1909, when youngest sister Bertha was born,
Mamie's father had brought them to Fisher Co. TX
and they were living at Clayton .
Mamie was my great-grandmother.
