From: Dennis Ward

Dear Fellow Tyner Researchers The information listed below was provided to me by a friend.[They would have to be a friend to do all this work.] When you find a mistake, please post it to the list and not to me and refer to this listing so we all know what is our reference point.

What I would like to see come of this is the sharing of information. For example, if you already have a Dawes Census card on a Tyner that you would put that card out on the Tyner List for all to see. Basically, what I like is the sharing of data [like our friend Jeanne Spain did] so that we don't have to reinvent the wheel with research that someone already has. Also I would think that this list might be expanded to include with another name (ie the female line) since these sometimes yield more data.

Hope to see some results on the Tyner list. Dennis Ward

Family name : Page #:



DAWES ROLL / GUION MILLER ROLLS 1898- 1914 The final roll for allotting the land and terminating the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. Senator Henry L. Dawes was the commission's Chairman, and consequently, the name Dawes is associated with the final roll. The roll turned out to not be as final as it was expected to be. Upon the reorganization of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma in the 1970's, the Dawes Roll became the only means of certifying membership.
