Looking for an Alice Hice

Alice Hice was married to Henry Ray Teague and then to a Lewis or Louis Mantooth.  Both lived in Arkansas and moved to Oklahoma.  At least this is the story we are hearing.  Alice was supposedly 100% Cherokee and her father's name was Dan or Daniel Hice.  She died in 1906 during childbirth to a child named Doria Mantooth.  She has dropped off the face of the earth other than a family picture we received showing Alice and her children.

Here is an L Mantooth marrying Alice Teague 14 May 1903 in Franklin County, Arkansas.

"Arkansas Marriages, 1837-1944," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F7MW-8ZQ : 10 February 2018), L. Mantooth and Alice Teague, 14 May 1903; citing , Franklin, Ark; FHL microfilm 1,034,245.

Same thing, with an image.  It looks to me like it says 'Miss Alice Teague.'

"Arkansas, County Marriages, 1837-1957," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N978-3J8 : 10 February 2018), L Mautract and Alice Teague, 14 May 1903; citing , Franklin, Arkansas, United States, county offices, Arkansas; FHL microfilm 1,034,245.

Widow Alice Teague, Franklin County, Arkansas, 1900, with five children including Albert:

"United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M3FM-PQP : accessed 2 August 2018), Alice Teague, Hurricane Township, Franklin, Arkansas, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 192, sheet 1B, family 10, NARA microfilm publication T623 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1972.); FHL microfilm 1,240,058.

Note Sub Rosa, the town listed as both parties' residence on the marriage record above, lies within Hurricane Township.

I haven't found any records about Alice Hice.  Maybe by tracing these five children, one of them has a marriage or death certificate showing mother's maiden name.

Thanks!  We got the name from her great-granddaughter, but all she knew was that she might be 100% Cherokee, she got remarried and died in childbirth.

The women on my father's side are the most difficult to track.
And looking at the actual marriage certificate, I can see where people might have seen it as Mantooth, not Mautract.
You're welcome, A!  After seeing the marriage license image, I have no idea what his name really was.  At least it gives a direction for further searching.  Good luck!

Thanks for the star, Pip!  smiley
