Welcome to History Hub
Is this your Robert B Flesher, wife's name Lucinda
Hi Alice, Thanks for responding. Yes. We have all the Cherokee records and US census records. We're looking for any records on his time in Dakota and Montana territories, 1870-80s. Thank you!!!
Dear Kelly Hallman,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Reports of Persons and Articles Hired, 1818 - 1905 in the Records of the Office of the Quartermaster General (Record Group 92) that may have a record of him. This series is partially indexed by Index to Scouts Mentioned in Reports of Persons and Articles Hired, 1861 - 1891 in Record Group 92, which despite its title, does not cover only scouts but includes additional types of hired persons. A freighter may have been listed as a teamster. For more information, please email the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at Archives1reference@nara.gov.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Dear Jason, Sorry for the belated response. Thank you so very much for providing me with this reference. I'll check it out. Regards, Kelly
