Preface I have long been curious about my Native roots. Who were all these people called Kansas Delaware? I knew my grandmother had been around them, as was her mother and all her cousins, but who was there then, and why? I reviewed the land allotments and saw so many common last names. I knew the Delaware had traveled many miles on foot and horseback from the east coast, Pennsylvania, Ohio and other areas before ending up in Kansas, but who was in the group, and why did these common names always appear? I thought they must be connected. Maybe not family, but certainly as a community. I thought the best way to do my research was review the 1862 allotment list and layout of the land. I knew my relations ran the ferry boat that moved goods to and from this region. I thought the listing of lots and inclusion of names on those plots might reveal family's and relationships to show how all these people were related. My attempt here in this project is to place the people in their family units, so we could see how interconnected they all were. Did their working relationship's through the decades, evolve into family's uniting?

Goal

The goal of this project is to add a tag to destinguish individual profiles within WikiTree. All the original individuals who were listed as DELAWARE INDIANS WHO ELECTED TO DISSOLVE THEIR TRIBAL RELATIONS AND BECOME CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES Under Treaty of July 4, 1866 "Kansas Delaware".

Documentation

This information was gathered from the writing by Chief Thomas Swiftwater Hahn via the link: http://lenapedelawarehistory.net/mirror/kansasdelaware.htm

The following is a listing of Delaware Indians Who Elected to Dissolve Their Tribal Relations and Become Citizens of the United States in 1866. They remained in Kansas when the main body of the Delaware went to Indian Territory (later Oklahoma) and became known as the "Kansas (Citizen) Delaware". The basic list of the Delaware and their minor children who chose to remain in Kansas is in Record Group 21, Subgroup: Kansas (Topeka), Record of Indian Naturalizations, National Archives (Kansas City, MO), was compiled by the Reverend John G. Pratt. Pratt based his list on the third article of the Treaty of 4 July 1866, between the Delaware and the United States at Sarcoxieville, in which it was stated that, "It shall be the duty of the Secretary of the Interior to give each of the Delaware Indians who have received their proportion of land in severalty an opportunity, free from all restraint, to elect whether they will dissolve their relations with the tribe and become citizens of the United States: and the lands of all such Indians as may elect so to become citizens, together with those of their minor children. held for them in severalty, shall be reserved from the sale hereinbefore provided for." (Kappler, Treaties, 937- 942.) The basic listing, which is in the public domain, can be found in Microfilm Roll No. 5. at the University of Kansas and and at the Wyandotte County Historical Museum at Bonner Springs, Kansas. Pratt's listing can also be found in Fay Louise Smith Arellano's Delaware Trails: Some Tribal Records 1842-1907, p. 185 in which it is entitled DELAWARE INDIANS WHO ELECTED TO DISSOLVE THEIR TRIBAL RELATIONS AND BECOME CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES Under Treaty of July 4, 1866. There is a listing of heads of family only in C. A. Weslager, The Delaware Indians: A History, Appendix 10, "List of Delawares on Reservation in Kansas Who Decided to Become American Citizens." Weslager's Listing provides a list of the nineteen heads of families only. See the Bibliography Section on this site for the ordering data and additional details of both of the latter two titles. Several of these persons later went to Indian Territory to live on Cherokee Land with the main body of the Delaware called "Registered Delaware " or the "Eastern Oklahoma Delaware Tribe of Indians" or the "Delaware Tribe of Indians," as they call themselves today. Accordingly, such persons are no longer considered to be members of the Kansas Delaware Tribe of Indians or "Citizen Delaware." Those persons generally can be distinguished by being on the 1898 Dawes Commission Roll and in the 1904 Cherokee Census. Though most of the Delaware who went to Indian Territory were considered to be Cherokee by the Cherokee Nation, they never really lost their Delaware connection. This has only been affirmed in recent court and Bureau of Indian Affairs decisions, but the matter remains in contention. To add to the confusion, the Delaware Tribe of Indians sometimes called the Delaware who elected to stay in Kansas-- but later went to Oklahoma-- "Kansas Delaware," a term sometimes used to denote members of the Kansas Delaware Tribe of Indians." For convenience we have three listings of the Delaware who remained in Kansas. The first is alphabetical. It includes the 1862 Allotment Numbers. The second is organized by 1862 Allotment Numbers. The third is an annotated listing by Allotment Numbers.

Dawes

https://classroom.synonym.com/the-life-of-a-homesteader-12079419.html

The Dawes Act By the 1880s, much of the western "frontier" had been settled, but thousands of people were still interested in migrating west for new opportunities. At the same time, Native American reservations, which dominated Oklahoma and much of the northern Rocky Mountain west, were viewed as corrupt, unsanitary and untenable disasters. Congress devised a solution to both the "Indian problem" and settlers' continued desire for land through the Dawes Severalty Act of 1887. The Dawes Act, which fit into the larger government goal of assimilating Native Americans into mainstream society, divided existing reservations into individual allotments of 40 to 160 acres of land. Native American male heads of household were assigned these allotments in trust. If they farmed their land successfully, they would gain complete ownership and U.S. citizenship after 25 years. Land that went unassigned was sold to land-hungry whites. Life Under the Dawes Act The lands allotted to Native American men were typically unsuitable for farming, arid and too small for raising livestock, especially for people unaccustomed to independent agriculture. Thus, Native people struggled to build successful lives on their new allotments. By 1891, the law was amended to allow Native Americans to lease their lands, and by 1907 they could sell them -- which many frustrated or cash-strapped Native Americans did. Moreover, in 1909, the U.S. government passed additional legislation that required government agents to determine Native American "competency" before turning over the 25-year trust -- often, agents simply reclaimed the land. All of these factors coalesced to strip Native people of their lands: While Native American held 155 million acres in 1881, they held just 77 million in 1900, and a mere 48 million by 1934.

HELP

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Kirt Fetterling.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Sorting through a copy of this list and sorting via last name, First, Allotment number. We need to know how this person attaches to our tree.
  • Creation of non existent profiles adding this to the top of the profile before BIOGRAPHY.
  • Researching of individuals to attach them to our ONE TREE in WikiTree.

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!

Kirt, very nice work! I can tell this is a passion project for you. Well done!
posted by Ronald Prentice
Following your progress. This is a great project but I find the length of this particular page and the duplicate sections cumbersome and am not sure how to USE it.

I can't help but wonder if -- for the lists -- a single spreadsheet would be easier to use, allowing sorting by either allotment or surname or ... but that would suggest a google doc/spreadsheet. Not sure how you feel about that.

I find I also want to see a section entitled Suggested Family Units. (If this was a spreadsheet that could be a column that when sorted would display the individuals in groups.)

You also say you want involvement by others. No one (but me?) knows you're doing this amazing work. You might want to post to g2g, perhaps: Seeking descendants and researchers of Kansas Delaware [Indians?].

This is an amazing project. Just challenging in terms of how best to organize its display...

How else can I help you?

Thank you Jillaine, I have been busy trying to recruit one of my cousins who went with the tribe to Oklahoma. This is a large project and I want to make sure I do this justice. I agree that the profile page needs to be reduced and duplicate records removed. At this point I am keeping the duplication so that others know this is not my work but the work of may people over quite a few years. The records are important for discovery. Once I'm certain that the family units are correct, I will reduce the duplication, and yes perhaps put in a spreadsheet to better fit within the profile page. Thank you so much for following this project. I will also consider a G2G posting once I'm certain the project is ready for more input. It's important to keep the initial project small and directed to who, where, when, and yes WHY! Vickie Peach has promised me some of her and Chief Tomas Swiftwater 's documentation, and once I have it documented and redundancy's reduced, I will certainly post to G2G. Thank you again; Kirt Fetterling

Kirt, because of the privacy settings, I can't edit this page. Are you okay opening it up? If not, add to top of profile, in double square brackets, "Category:Delaware_Nation" without the quotation marks. On the Privacy tab, change Native Americans Project to be profile manager, and that will achieve co-management. You can then delete both of these comments.

Kirt, this looks like a great page, and it would be good to get it more visibility. A couple of things:

1. Could you please add [email address removed] to the Trusted List so project volunteers can follow along? (We're also happy to co-manage, but that's up to you.)

2. Consider adding categories like Delaware_Nation so that folks interested in the Delaware people might find this.

Nice work!

Update 11/14/19

I am sorting through all the allotment ID's listed on the Thomas Swiftwater Hahn link. I'm 80% done researching the conflicting numbers where individuals numbers were a few digits off. The errors are mostly within the same family. I will put up my revised list above the original data it was comprised from. The revised listing to be available prior to Thanksgiving 2019.

The next phase is to see if I can get help from our current tribal rolls administrator, and have them assist in filling parents for unknown persons in preparation of adding them ALL to WikiTree.

I'll see also if I can improve this page, and insert a few maps of the area and allotment.

If you read this, drop me a line..
