Pearl Lee Watie's Find-a-grave site http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=5950060

shows Tom Watie as his father.I can't find anything definite on Tom Watie. One source says a Cherokee named Tom Watie was murdered by a rival Indian Tribe. Another shows a Tom Watie rleased from jail. Still another hionts that a Tom Watie was a brother of General Stand Watie.

I need Pearl Lee's line of descent.

His WWI draft record gives his birth date and location so you might want to contact the County Clerk to see if there is a birth record.

World War I Draft Registration

IMAGE SOURCE:  https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1951-25079-5453-67?cc=1968530

Name: Lee Watie

Male White Married 1 child

Nationality: United States

There is also a Walter Watie b. 1880 in OK, who is listed as ‘Negro’ on his WWI Draft Registration, wife’s name happens to be Pearl  and father listed as Tom Watie on Walters Death Cert.   He also has applications to the five tribes.  Might be a brother of your ancestor?

Those various  records can be found here:

Pearl Lee Watie's father was Thomas Henry Crawfish Watie. Not the Tom Watie, brother of Stand Watie. Stand Watie has no living decendants.
