Hi, I'm new to the forum. My hunka brother referred me. My great great grandfather, John H. Maththews is on the 1910 Siloam Springs Arkansas census as "mixed". My great grandpa, William H., and my grandma, Lula are on there as "mixed, Indian". It says that John H.'s dad was from Nebraska and his mom was from Iowa. He was from Iowa as well. I understand that at the time his parent would have been born, Nebraska and Iowa wouldn't have even been states yet. It was called Unorganized, or Indian Territory. I can't find anything past my great great grandpa. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! This looks like a great resource!
it took some searching but I found the census you mentioned. John H.maththews was born 1849 in Ia.His father was born in NE,Mother b. Ia. Mary E. was John H's wife.she was b. 1852 in IA, her parents were b. Ind. others in household were Charlie maththews and Arthur H. maththews. William H. maththews,son of John H. and mary E. maththews was born 1878 in MO, his wife Bessie A. was white,b. 1882 NC,her Parents b. NC children: Arthur 11 b. Texas George W age 9 b. Ark. Joseph H. b Okcharlie A. 6 yrs. b. Ark. clyde F., 8yrs, Marion C. age 2, and Lula M. age 1 were b. Ark. You may have to be satisfied with what you found on your grgrgranther,as there aren't any censuses for Unorganized ,and Iowa Territory in the 1830's,but there may be something for Iowa in the laate 1840's and 1850's. do you know if your gr.gr.grandpa was in the US civil War? does anyone of your older relatives have a family bible? do you know when and where your gr gr.grandparents died? check with your relatives and find out what you can about your ancestors. I am guessing that your gr.gr.g.r.grandfather may have been a Ponca Indian.
it appears your grgrgrandfather's father was Indian, his mother was white.

Thanks for your reply. I don't have any info on my great great grandfather. I did, however, find a Henry (Two Legs) Matthews born in 1832-34 on several censuses. He was on the Omaha Reservation. This would have been around the time my great great great grandfather would have been born, and the reservation extends to Iowa. Why do you think Ponca?
davage: great. prior to 1866,what is now Nebraska, the Poncas were inhabitants,as well as other tribes,ie. the Omaha Sioux,etc. the Sioux were predominant from upper Minnesota down through Iowa, Nebraska and the the Dakotas,as well as Wyoming.the Great Sioux nation extended from the west side of the red river all the way west into Montana. Was hebry two legs listed as a full blood or mixed?Remember,you posted that his son John H. was listed as a mixed blood,as was his son William H.if he was a full blood ththen his wife would have to havwe been non indian.
I didn't see where it says full blood or not. On the original it just says no., Indian name, english name, sex, relation and age. I only have 2 living cousins that I know of, and one of them I can't get in touch with. The other, well I think I've given him more information than he knew
The reason i asked,is the surname Maththews is not his spouse was I can only guess that either he himself was a mixed blood,or he took his spouse's surname. if he did the latter, than it would indicate that she was non-indian and he was a full blood.
