I have copied some information that I found by searching the above link.
Native American census rolls 1885-1940-The following are from 1903
Although countiing Native Americans began in 1860, the
1890 Census was the first one to attempt to count all Native Americans throughout the country.
Found an Emmett Garry who attended the Carlisle Indian School in Rosebud South Dakota in
1916 click links below
I hope that you find these helpful...I am still searching.
Found more for you,
I think that's about all of my finds, tried to find Ida's parents No Luck
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:76V7-LPZM Ida's age transcribed wrong on this one
The following page you can find the date of birth of some of Ida and Henry's children.
https://www.familysearch.org/search/family-trees/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3Aida~%20%2Bsurname%3Agary~%20%2Bbi… this information on this previous page suggest that Ida was only 10 when she married Henry 24.and she had her first child, Dinah, at the age of 11
Thanks so much, Alice! I can't tell you how much I appreciate the research help. I've wondered, given Ida's very young age at Dinah's birth whether Dinah was one of Henry's children from another marriage. Given the fact that the paternity of her daughter, Ida, was openly acknowledged to be CC Cooley and not Henry, I've speculated that she married Henry after Ida Cooley's birth. All of this is very complicated and very difficult to untangle. Thanks again for helping me piece together my family's story.

Thank you so much for this lead! It's a challenging family story to try to put together, and I appreciate your help in guiding me where to look. Thank oyu!
Robert - I, too, have been researching this family. My brother-in-law is the grandson of Maude Sidner Eckland. Her mother was Ida Bear and her bio father was C.C. (Charles) Cooley. I’m trying to find info on Ida’s family and C.C.‘s family. I have a picture of Maude and C.C., given to me by Nancy Eckland Bell, who I just realize is probably your wife! Lol.
