Dear Ms. Arnold,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Dawes Final Rolls have not changed. The Creek sections are arranged first by blood, then newborns, then minors, & then freedman. The term “Dawes Rolls” is often used to refer to all of the records the Commission created such as the census cards, the applications, enrollment packages, and the final rolls. It is possible that you may have been looking at other Dawes-related records.
We suggest that you review NARA’s Five Civilized Tribes: Dawes Records website for additional information. We also suggest that you contact the National Archives at Fort Worth (RM-FW) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the records and about your ancestors' listings.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
