Seeking information on Susan A. Merriman (Merryman) m. Charles G. Brooks 8 Feb 1868 Smith, TN. Am flailing about trying to find the family of my great-grandmother, Ida Caldonia Brooks, b. January, 1872 Tennessee, m. Alfred Pickens Seabolt (Cherokee) about 1890. 1900 Census has them listed as "Alford and Ida Sebolt" with their four sons in Indian Territory. All we know of Ida is what is contained in that census as she died in childbirth in 1903. Family "talk" lists her father as Charles and mother as Susan Merryman, as does - though I cannot verify the source used. Any help appreciated.
