From the article on this site about the Indian "Experiment" at Beloit, it states-
"VINES P. MITCHELL Vines P. Mitchell, a 3/4 Dakota, entered the Academy as a member of the English and Business class on October 17, 1883. He attended the Academy for one year. He was 24, the oldest of the four students sent to Beloit. In a later issue of the Word Carrier, there is mention of his marriage, but the date is unknown. Neither is the date of his death known."
Here is his marriage license-
Vines and Eliza had at least the following children- Albert c. 1886 Nellie c. 1887 Johnnie c. 1889 Minnie c. 1891 Cora c. 1896 Irene c. 1898
the Greeks like to prty too. I'll never forget my brother's wedding in 1962. My other brother had brought down a professor and some foriegn exchange students from the U. of South Dakota, as guest sto the wedding. anyway, we had also invited them to a private party along with others of our friends and family to a small club owned by yet another of my borthers's friends. the party broke up sometime after dan the next morning. Two days later we got a call from the University of South Dakota wnting to know if we had seen the Professor friend my brother had brought down, and we told the caller s no. tTe poor man , we learned later from my brother, woke up the evening following the wedding, ina motel in South Sioux City with the biggest hangover he had erver had from drinking Ouzo, Greece's answer to "White Lightning", not knowing how he got to the motel, let alone where he was. Luckily my brother found him and brooought him to our house where my dad brewed up some of his "hnagoveir remedy, namely a pot of hot turkish coffee, and we got the professort to drink some of this stuff. It is so potent that one cup make s your hair go stuiff and you get such a jolt, you sit up straight in your chair.. My brother took him back to Vermillion and he called in sick to the school the following f aternoon.

Hermin, I think you and I have had this conversation about Turkish coffee! While I was at Mayo clinic in Rochester one of my Dr.'s was from Jordan and her husband also a Dr...(a nuclear physicist, no less) was from Egypt. They had invited us to attend church with them..Greek Orthodox...and have lunch. Church was so beautiful and the icons were gorgeous. I don't think a stranger will ever enter that church because they are the most welcoming congregation I have ever been privelaged to meet. Anyway after lunch my Dr. said that she had a surprise...guess what? TURKISH COFFEE and I was so very glad I could reply that I was not a coffee drinker but my husband had no excuse so he drank the coffee. I was so proud of him because he drank it all. She had told him there was a surprise at the bottom which was chocolate. When we left he told me they could use the coffee as paint stripper. He was pretty wired and I think it took a couple of days to recover. By the way what is the name of the pasta they serve? It looks like thick spaghetti and it was wonderful. Okay now I'm hungry so I better go to bed.
transcripts for 1863 Red Lake & Pembina Treaty: www.maquah.net/Historical/1863/1863-1864_treaty-INDEX.html ... this one happened to be published, but transcripts for almost all of the treaty negotiations are at the National Archives (at least one is still in the original 19th-century shorthand, never transcribed... kinda interesting, the parts of the stenographer's book that got crossed out)
santee1961: Re. the pasta you mentioned, I remember many years ago, My mom would send me to the store and tell me to tell the grocer, in our neighborhood, who was Greek, that she wanted a so many pound s of Macaroni. He would get it from an import house in Chicago Illinois. My mom would have to brak it up into smaller pieces for cooking. It came in long strnands back then. Now it comes in smaller pieces, I would guess about 2 inches long, But I don't know wht they call it now.
I found this interesting document today. It is part of the 1880 U.S. Federal Census, but it is the Mortality Schedule. It lists all of the Indians who died at the Santee Reservation in 1879-1880, unfortunately it does not give their names. I thought it was interesting anyway.
I'm still searching for my family Wakanmani and hopestincistinna (amanda Third Bird) I don't know if this is really her name. But I'm getting close. I went and looked up sitting bulls biography on amazon.com and guess what!. I found a book named through Dakota eyes. It let me look at the index and I found Wakanmani , Loud voice cloud and Jacob Grayfoot there. I know they had a daughter named Harriett Anpowin Daylight . Boy!!! don't think I didn't hoop and hollar. I ordered it . So if anyone has more information I would greatly appreciate it. There is alot more names in the index. I will continue to search until all my family is found. It's just great to get online and read all information . thanks Toni
tonilew: We would be more than glad to help you if you would provide us with information on your family tree, and some vital dates for each person that you have information on. We are here to heelp you.
tonilew: Wakanmani is Spirit Walker, and Marpiyahotanka is Big Voice(d) Cloud. Hapistinnacistinna is litltle third born daughter, I believe. I would suggest, in re. to Daylight , the name could be in reference to one of the Wapasha descendents.

Sisco, From the front page it says she was Yankton ,died Mar4'1901 at the age of 66.Was married to a John White Eyes. I think I ended up with this because one of the census's I have has Thomas Rising Cloud and Mary Pretty Feather's mother as a woman Named Canoin. James and Fannie Mad Bull have the same woman listed as their mother. this probate has Nagikoyakewin's father as Wanbdikuwa, mother is Canwiyawa. Brother Owancayasna,brother Hapstin, sister Tatipasnawin. There is a testimony by John Smith. A testimony by John White Eyes. Edward Blacksmith says the father is wakaninihanku mother canwinyawa. Her father had the following brothers and sisters wakankaskanskan hihakahowaste wanmdiwakanwin tiyoduta wakanhdidan piyaiyotkewin anpe akicitanajin kazicewin
There are 26 pages . It says Canwiyana was married to a Wapasha or Wabasha and had six children the only one living was Nepoleon.also mentions John and William Wabasha. So much for the condensed version, let me know if you see anything.
