Searching for details on Benjamin Franklin Jones, aka' Whitefeather'

Iam seeking any details on a Benjamin Franklin Jones born in 1872 possibly in the Indian Territory of Choteau of what is now Oklahoma or possibly born in Texas. Supposedly, his parents are Warren Jones and Ella. He married Mary Ann Nally from Harrison, Arkansas, in 1895 in the Cherokee Nation, by the minister Sam I. Bass(not to be confused with the outlaw from Round Rock), it was said that he was put in jail numerous times only to break out, it was said that he worked at the 101 Ranch in Ponca City, he had lived in Carrollton Township in Arkansas with his wife from about 1895 through 1897, moved to Harrison, Arkansas around 1898 until 1910 and later married several other women in Oklahoma. It was said his Cherokee name was Whitefeather. What is true is he would be gone weeks on end, only to come home for about 15 minutes and would be gone again. Don't know where he died, when he died, etc. Any information would be greatful.
