I have been attempting to use Fold3 to identify the parents of Virgie Walton, however the quality of the photocopies are very poor.  Virgie is on Dawes Enrollment card 165.  It is assumed that her father was was Simon Walton on card 166, however there is a reference to Joe Walton in the Dawes Packets.Joe was the father of Josiah S. Walton card 188.  I cannot make out who the mother is as shown on this card.  Joe Walton was on card 50 but deleted due to death.  Card 50 indicates his wife was Salina Walton, again the card copy is of poor quality and I cannot make out any other information.  In the Dawes Packets Simon Walton and Virgie Walton obtained land which had improvements that belonged to Salina Walton.  Could someone help with legible cards?  I do not have access to Ancestry.

Card 165 for. Rogers Stick lists Virgie as a 7 month old granddaugter, father Sinion Walton of Pontotoc.  The card says that Minnie Stick is identified as the wife of Simon Walton, Card #166.  A letter is attached to the application which says "... Virgie Walton, infant daughter of Simon and Minne Walton, born March 7, 1902.....  the mother of the child was listed for enrollment under the name Minnie Stick daughter of Rogers and Lucy Stick; that she was married subsequent to the time she was listed for enrollment to Simon Walton."   There is a complete birth affidavit for Virgie also attached, attested to by Sarah Richardson, Midwife.

166 app says Malinda Walton was the mother of three children, Simon and Wisdom Walton and Sukey Williams.  Wisdom died in 1898.  Malinda, Simon, and Sukey appear together on a 1902 payroll.  

Application 188 deals with Josiah Walton and several relatives.  He was married to a woman named Emily and stated that he was 37 years old and the son of Joe Walton.  

Joe Walton was the husband of Salina Colbert.  .Perhaps they were the parents of both Josiah and Malinda, and grandparents of Simon and his brother?  The packet for Joe Walton says his heirs wanted to know if he was eligible for an allotment.  He wasn't - he died too early.
Thank you to everyone that helped.
Malinda Walton's parents were Chickasaw -  Esh-so-no and Cha-ta-ne-cha according to card 166.
