    Court Document regarding my great-grandfather.

    Becky Meziere Newbie

      I am searching for a court document for the time frame between 1906-1908 Rapides Parish, Louisiana for a Paul Allen Thomas. The document is when he applied for land in Indian Country but was denied because he did mot meet the time frame. I think the attorney he used was Scarborough. I have checked our courthouse where i once found the document but it is not there now.


      Paul was born between 1868 to 1874 born supposedly in Louisiana or Oklahoma he is buried in our family Cemetery called Neal Cemetery. I know he is Choctaw Indian and I know some of his family because I visit them in Oklahoma every year.  Also, I am trying to figure out who his parents were. Family lure states he changed his name at some point prior to marrying my great-grandmother any help would be greatly appreciated. Surnames associated with his family are; Brandy, Maytubby, Feilicatubby, Battise, Baptiste, Sockey, Noah etc... these are all Choctaw family names.
