Date: Sunday, February 19, 2012
Surnames: Bones, Tombigbee, Tensaw,
I've 3 other times to insert a lot of data here and it seems to get sent somewhere elsa or gets lost. Frustrating !! I'll try again
Daniel Bruner of 1753? son of Daniel 1729? in the Tombigbee area of Alabama, married ___ ? 1759? lived at Concharty, located not far from the Tensaw district. alleged to have been a Micco (not a chief)and resident at Concharty (Red Ground) in 1832 w/ 4 males and 4 females in the house. In 1834, he was the administrator for Redmouth, deceased in Coosa co., Al. He voted at Concharty in 1875, 1883, and 1894. Being allowed to vote indicates that he was part Creek indian. His house consisted of:
Grace 1784? a Grace was at Stone Bluff and Bixby, Ok.. another Grace was born about 1877, daughter of Daniel Bruner and Manana Pinhill #2194 1954--1906 daughter of Abner Pinehill. Manana had married Thomas WILSON (note)first and next Jim Green. Grace's half-brother is John Green #2196 1887--1907. I will note here that the name Manana would be a little difficult for Creek indians to pronounce and they usually gave nicknames that sounded like the real name, - thus "Minnie Wilson". The "Minnie Wilson" and Manana Pinehill also had the same birth year.
Sarah 1789? a Creek censes will indicate that a Sarah shared a house with Rose.
Rose 1740? another wife of Daniel 1729? was not a Creek indian name back in the early 1800s, the same for Grace. Names like Rose and Grace will come into use in nthe very late 1800s as more intermarriages took place.
James Bruner 1795 wife is Anna Bruner 1800 moved west in 1829 with a Thomas, and a William. Voted at Little River Tulsa in 1875. * NOTE: Little River Tulsa is my tribal town group and were located around Holdenville, Ok. after the Trail Of Tears. They were mainly from Tuckabatchee town but other goups joined them on the Trail and in Oklahoma. The old Alabama Ekonchatte/Concharty was located near to and south west of Tuckabatchee.
Nancy Bruner, 1805 a Cherokee of the Saline district in 1852, joined the Creeks in Trail west. Was with a Daniel and Archie Bruner.
Jacob Bruner 1812?, son of Daniel 1729? married Eliza ___ 1814 and had Richard R. 1832?, Joseph 1834?, David 1840?.
NOTE: many persons add roll numbers to their family list but do not write which Roll they are taking the numbers from, - very confusing, as I have checked a lot of numbers and they are not from the Dawes Roll of 1899?. I use only the roll numbers from the Dawes Roll. a number preceeded by "nb" indicates the New Born roll. The "mc" indicates the later "minor child" roll.
Richard R. Bruner 1832 #2007, located in Tuskeegee and Beggs,Ok married (1) Pollie ___ 1840 (2) Harriet Bones 1846 #2008; children are David 1860, Freeland 1874, Thomas 1877, Henry 1880, Pinky 1881, Eliza Jane 1883, Step-daughter was Tula Steele 1872 and step grandson was Noah Sharp 1892. Richard voted at Wokkokaye in 1875, 1883, and at Weogulka in 1894.
Lewis/Louis/ Loney/ Luney 1817/24 seems to indicate the same person according to the birth year of his children. Creek males were allowed to have as many wives as they could support or handle. All wives did not stay in the same house which depended on the wishes of the first wife as wives had the say-so about the Household. Other wives could live in other small towns nearby. The children did no belong to the father but to the wife who "owned" the children.
