Black Seminole surnames recorded on the Dawes roll

13018 Views

These lists represent the surnames of freedmen from the Seminole tribe who were adopted through the Dawes Commission, between 1898 and 1916.

Note that many of these names appear in other Indian nation lists, and their appearance here does not provide proof of Black Indian Ancestry. 

In addition to these items, it is recommended that the researcher obtain as much oral history as possible on the family, and then locate the Dawes records on the family, including the names of ancestors on the Enrollment Cards and other pertinent records.

These names represent only the Seminole freedmen of Oklahoma, and not the Seminoles of Florida.
