Capt James Fletcher
Looking for information on Captain James Fletcher and families. James was 3/4 Mississippi Choctaw Indian Chief. He was one of many tribal chiefs that signed the Treaty of the Dancing Rabbit Creek in 1830, which was the treaty that moved his people from Mississippi to the Indian Territory in Oklahoma. This was later to become known as “the Trail of Tears”. My husbands ggg Grandmother was Miranda/Maranda Fletcher b.abt 1831 in Mississippi who married Collier Barksdale Gates. Her parents were John Fletcher (son of Capt James) and Sally/Sarah Merchant. Miranda and Collier died in Winn Parish LA. USA. They had 10 children including Sarah Ann Gates who married
James Thomas Kelly. I have more info to share on these families.
