Notes for John Thomas COLBERT

I have not yet connected John Thomas Colbert clearly to the line of Levi
Colbert and his granddaughter Frances (Fannie) Colbert, who married Daniel
David Green in Indian Territory.  John T Colbert was reported in a Powell
Family genealogy as the maternal grandfather of Frances (Fannie) Colbert, who
was born in Indian Territory.

Fannie's mother was named as Mamie Colbert and it is reported she married
Fannie's father David Colbert, son of Major Levi Colbert and Dollie
Temusharhoctay.  Birth dates given for Mamie and both her parents in the
Powell genealogy of the Colberts were LATER than the birth date of Fannie. 
John T is contemporaneous with Fannie's children.

John Thomas married Maie Pierce in Dyer County, Tennessee, in 1889.

Levi and several members of his family are specifically mentioned in the
US-Chickasaw Treaty relating to the removal of the Chickasaw Nation from
Mississippi-Alabama to Indian Territory, and their reimbursement.  The
following excerpts are from the Treaty of 31 August 1830.

ARTICLE 6. Whereas Levi Colbert, George Colbert, Tishimingo, William McGilvery
and Saml. Seeley Senr., have been long known, as faithful and steady friends
of the United States, and regardless of the interest of their own people; to
afford them an earnest of our good feeling, now that they are about to seek a
new home; the commissioners, of their own accord, and without any thing of
solicitation or request, on the part of said persons, have proposed, and do
agree, that they have reservations of four sections each, to include their
present improvements, as nearly as may be; or, if they have improvements at
any other place than one, then, equally to divide said reservations, so that
two sections may be laid off at one place of improvement, and two at another;
or, the whole at one place, as the party entitled may choose. They shall be
entitled to the same in fee simple, to be resided upon; or, if they prefer it,
they may, with the consent of the President, sell and convey the same, in fee.
And it is further agreed, that upon the same terms and conditions, a
reservation of two sections, to be surveyed together, and to include the
improvements of the party entitled, shall and the same is hereby declared to
be, secured to Capt. James Brown, James Colbert, John McLish & Isaac Alberson.

ARTICLE 9. At the request of the delegation, it is agreed that Levi Colbert
shall have an additional section of land, to that granted him in the 6th
article, to be located where he may prefer, and subject to the conditions
contained in said sixth article.

ARTICLE 15. A desire having been expressed by Levi Colbert, that two of his
younger sons, Abijah Jackson Colbert, and Andrew Morgan
Colbert, aged seven and five years, might be educated under the direction and
care of the President of the United States; and George Colbert having also
expressed a wish that his grand-son, Andrew Frazier, aged about twelve years,
might have a similar attention: It is consented, that at a proper age, as far
as they may be found to have capacity, they shall receive a liberal education,
at the expense of the United States, under the direction and control of the

2. Colbert's Island, in the Tennessee river, just below the mouth of Caney
Creek, supposed to contain five hundred acres, has always been in the use and
occupancy of George Colbert, and has been admitted by the nation, to be his
individual property. It is agreed now, that he shall be recognized, as having
a title to the same, and that he shall receive from the United States, in
consideration of it, one thousand dollars, to be paid in one year after the
Chickasaws shall remove to their new homes.

3. James Colbert has represented, that he has a claim of thirteen hundred
dollars, of money due from a citizen of the United States;-that he has become
insolvent, and is unable to pay it. It is further represented, that by the
rule of the Chickasaw people, where an Indian cannot pay a debt due to a white
man, the nation assumes it. Also, Levi Colbert shews, that some time since, he
purchased of a white citizen, a horse which was stolen, and proven and taken
out of his possession, as stolen property, for which he has not, and cannot,
obtain remuneration. Being now about to leave their ancient homes, for a new
one, too distant to attend to their business here; it is agreed that a section
of land may be located and reserved, to be bound ancient homes, for a new one,

Notes for Mamie COLBERT

Frances Colbert is reported to descend from Colberts on both sides.  Colbert
genealogies report the surname of both her sets of grandparents as Colbert. 
But one genealogy that thus reports, while providing some helpful information
concerning Fannie's paternal line, is in gross error concerning her maternal
line.  This source reports birth years LATER THAN FANNIE's for her purported
mother Mamie Colbert AND her parents.

is later than Fannie's!]

Notes for Samuel COLBERT

2 stories about origins:
"Daugherty (Winchester) Colbert although listed as a son of the large family
of Levi Colbert, and although he was reared as a member of that family, ... he
is reputed to be the natural son of an itinerant, adventurous white man by the
name of Darrity. His mother was a Chickasaw woman. ... Recent 'Colbert'
Scholars believe that he was the son of Samuel and Nancy (Frazier) Colbert, (a
younger son of James Logan Colbert), and upon Samuel's early death, he was
adopted by Levi Colbert. (See, Martini 'Chickasaw Empire')"

Notes for William Cooshemataha COLBERT

William Colbert

William Colbert was born in Chickasaw Nation about 1742; he was the eldest son
of James Logan Colbert and an older brother of George Colbert.  He was also
called "Chooshemataha", "Pyaheggo" and "Billy Colbert".  William Colbert was
the friend, follower, and successor of Piomingo, Chief of the Chickasaw
Nation.  He was a celebrated fighter and was an ally of the Americans not only
against hostile Indians, but also when a struggle against Spain for the
possession of the Mississippi Territory seemed imminent.

William married twice with his first marriage to a Creek woman known as Jessie
"Wayther" Moniac in Chickasaw Nation before 1780.  Jessie was the daughter of
the Creek Indian William Dixon “Dick” Jacob Moniac and Sehoy III, daughter
of Creek Chief Tuckabatche.  Since Jessie Moniac Colbert was not listed on the
1818 Chickasaw Roll, she was either dead or no longer the wife of William
Colbert.  Jesse was a sister to Elise Moniac who was the wife of Creek Chief
Alexander McGillivray; therefore, William Colbert and Alexander McGillivray
were brother-in-laws.  William’s second marriage was to Ishtanaha "Mimey" in
Chickasaw Nation before 1824; she died after 1839 in Indian Territory.  She
was baptized at the Monroe Mission in Pontotoc County, Mississippi on June 5,
1830.  She migrated from Mississippi to Indian Territory on board the
steamboat Fox and arrived on November 21, 1837.

On one occasion, William feared that the Cherokees had killed Piomingo and all
his party; therefore, William and George Colbert organized a party of
Chickasaws on either side of the Tennessee River to cut off six canoes of
Cherokees.  Levi Colbert asked William to wait until they could confirm that
these Cherokees had actually killed Piomingo.  William Colbert tried to get
the canoes to stop and come to shore.  The Cherokees disregarded his order and
kept on their way; William considered they were guilty and chased the canoes
down.  One canoe paddled to the shore and the Cherokee man jumped out and hid
himself in bushes; William Colbert found the man, killed him, and took his

In June of 1794, George and William Colbert accompanied Piomingo to
Philadelphia, where the chiefs received a certificate from President George
Washington on July 21, 1794; the certificate guaranteed to the tribe all
Chickasaw lands claimed by Piomingo at the Nashville Indian Conference that
included all of western Kentucky, central and western Tennessee, northern
Mississippi, and northwestern Alabama.  They also received a $3000.00 annuity
for their aid to St. Clair in 1791.

At the solicitation of President George Washington, Major General William
Colbert, who succeeded Piomingo as the principal chief of the Chickasaw
Nation, journeyed to the Ohio country and served under General Mad Anthony
Wayne against the Indians of the Northwest.  On August 20, 1794, William
Colbert led a contingent of Chickasaw warriors in support of General Anthony
Wayne at the battle of Fallen Timbers, Ohio, against Little Turtle and the
Northwestern Confederation of Indians.

In January 1795, William Colbert and a band of Chickasaw warriors took five
Creek scalps on the Duck River in the Chickasaw country, perhaps in
retaliation for raids by the Creeks against the Cumberland settlers and
Chickasaw hunters during the previous four months.  On January 13, 1795,
William Colbert and a party of 100 Chickasaws that included his Creek wife
Jessie Moniac Colbert and several of his children carried the scalps to
General James Robertson at Nashville.

Since William Colbert did not get guns and supplies from General James
Robertson or Governor William Blount of Southwest Territory in his war against
the Creeks, he left his wife Jessie Moniac Colbert in Knoxville, and rounded
up Chiefs William McGillivray, John Brown, Piomingo, and interpreter Malcolm
McGee and set out for Philadelphia.  The delegation received an audience with
President George Washington on August 22, 1795, but again received no help or
encouragement in the prosecution of a new war with the Creeks.

When the Creek war broke out in 1813, Major William Colbert quickly joined and
served nine months in the third regiment of United States Infantry for service
against the Creek enemies of the Chickasaw Nation.  William served five months
in the regular infantry; he returned to the Chickasaw Nation and raised an
independent force which he led against the hostile Creeks.  William pursued
the Creeks from Pensacola almost to Apalachicola; he and the Chickasaws killed
many Creeks and brought back eighty-five prisoners to Montgomery.  William
completed his service with the United States Army at the end of the Creek
Indian War.

On numerous occasions, William Colbert represented his people at Washington,
DC, and in the very early days, was received by President George Washington,
in Philadelphia.  William also made a trip with his half-brother George
Colbert and Wolf’s Friend to meet with President John Adams in Philadelphia
in 1798.  In June 1816, William headed a Chickasaw delegation to Washington,
and in the treaty that followed he was made a Major General; he was granted an
annuity of $100 for the rest of his life.

Half-blood William Mizle, a Chickasaw interpreter who married a daughter of
Piomingo, wrote in his journal that to accommodate his trade, he stored
whiskey at the great Holly Springs some miles south of Chickasaw Bluffs in
Spring Hollow.  A traveler stated that he spent several days at the home of
General William Colbert who lived near the Federal Agency located about two
miles south of the present village of Old Houlka in Chickasaw County.  He
stated that, “William Colbert was a great drinker and, having run out of
whiskey, walked to Mizle's post at the holly springs and bought seven kegs of
whiskey; Colbert then started home and, just after arriving there, drank the
last of the seventh keg, having consumed three days upon the trip."

Major General William Colbert died May 30, 1824, in Tockshish, Pontotoc
County, Mississippi at 81 years of age.  The best evidence of General William
Colbert's death is found in some old Chickasaw Agency records.  One is a
receipt from Ishtanaha (William’s second wife) to Chickasaw Agent Benjamin
F. Smith for the pension of General Colbert.  The receipt is dated July 15,
1824, for $40 in full for the amount settled on my husband General William
Colbert by the Government of the United States up to May 30, 1824, at which
time he deceased.  Additionally, in Smith's Chickasaw Agency expenditure
accounting on September 27, 1824, he list a payment to, "Ishtanaha Colbert for
the Pension of General William Colbert."  Again in his accounts accepted by
United States auditor William Stuart on December 4, 1824, Smith states that
$40 was paid, "to the wife of General William Colbert in full to May 30,
1824."  His body was interred in Pontotoc City Cemetery, Pontotoc County,

"Colbert, William.  A Chickasaw chief.  During the Revolutionary war he aided
the Americans, and in the army of Gen. Arthur St Clair led the Chickasaw
allies against the hostile tribes and was known as the great war-chief of his

Military Figure. Major General William Cooshemataha Pyaheggo Colbert was born
about 1742. He was the eldest son of James Logan Colbert, a Scot who came to
the eastern coast and settled in Charleston, South Carolina in the early
1700s.  William's mother was a full blooded Chickasaw Indian.

In 1784 James Logan Colbert was killed in a horse accident. William relocated
and settled in Toxish in the southeastern part of the present day Pontotoc
County Mississippi. This was the beginning of his eventful life. William
Colbert led one band of the Chickasaws in their campaigns against Little
Turtle, commanding the Northwestern confederation of Indians.

They went there at the solicitation of President Washington to aid General St.
Clair, and afterwards General Wayne. William Colbert was in the party of
Chickasaws that visited President George Washington when our national
government was in Philadelphia. It was on this occasion that he was given the
title of General, because of his services to the American people. He was a
celebrated fighter, and an ally of the Americans, not only against hostile
Indians, but also Spain when trying to take possession of Mississippi, and
later, the British invaders, during the War of 1812.

He fought for his own people and assisted Andrew Jackson against the Creeks.
Andrew Jackson presented William with a military coat, which he wore on
important occasions until his death. On September 20, 1816, at the signing of
the Chickasaw treaty, William earned the name Major General William Colbert.

For his long services and his faithfulness to the United States government,
William Colbert received an annuity of one hundred dollars for the remainder
his life. William Colbert died during the winter of 1836, and his place of
burial is in the Pontotoc City Cemetery.

Notes for Winchester Daugherty COLBERT

Most genealogies have his name as Winchester Daugherty Colbert, but the
memorial on Find a Grave has reversed the name order.  Wikipedia reports his
name from Chickasaw Nation sources as simply Daugherty.  Various records refer
to him also as simply Daugherty or Dougherty.  Annica's grave, however, styles
here as "Annica Wife of W Colbert."  A history, however, which reports he was
adopted by Levi, refers to Daugherty (originally Darrity) as his first name
(see below).  We are told he adopted the name Winchester later in life.

Note that Annica is reported here as the mother of Daugherty's son George. 
Most, if not all, genealogies also report Annica Kemp as the mother of all or
most of his children, even though they also report that Annica and Daugherty
did not marry until 1875.

This, plus other anomalies, multiple mothers for the same children, and wild
variations of birth and death dates for the same children, even in the
multiple entries for the same children in the same genealogy, along with the
lack of sources and documentation, make a huge number of the posted
genealogies unreliable as witnesses we can use here.  There is a smaller set
of documented and well-presented genealogies.

Analysis of the birth dates indicates that Annica was the last wife and mother
of none of Daugherty's children.  This is verified by the small set of
carefully constructed genealogies that do report a consistent and documented
picture of Daugherty's family.

The area where Daugherty lived and was buried is now part of Johnston County,
Oklahoma, which is in the current Choctaw Nation.  The Chickasaws were
originally part of the Choctaw Nation, and the area was part of the Chickasaw
settlement area in Indian Territory.  Johnston County was established in 1907
at the founding of the state of Oklahoma, created from a merger of the Indian
Territory with the Oklahoma Territory and parts of Texas and other land.  The
county was named for Douglas H. Johnston, a governor of the Chickasaw Nation. 
It seems odd that a former governor of the Chickasaw Nation was living in
Choctaw Nation at the time of his death.

Johnston County, Oklahoma

Johnston County is a county located in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. As of 2010,
the population was 10,957. Its county seat is Tishomingo. It was established
at statehood on November 16, 1907 and named for Douglas H. Johnston, a
governor of the Chickasaw Nation.

In 1820, the U.S. government granted the land now known as Johnston County to
the Choctaw tribe. Many of the Choctaws began moving to the new land in Indian
Territory in 1830. The rest followed the Chickasaw tribe, who were closely
related to the Choctaw , formally separated from the Choctaw Nation in the
late 1830s, relocating to the western part of the Choctaw Nation. The
Chickasaw Nation named the town of Tishomingo as its capital and built a brick
capitol building there in 1856.

Several educational institutions were established in the Chickasaw Nation
before the Civil War. The Pleasant Grove Mission School and the Chickasaw
Academy were founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1844. The
Presbyterians, in partnership with the Chickasaw Nation, opened the Wapanucka
Female Manual Labour School in 1852.

The Chickasaw government joined the Confederate States of America after the
outbreak of the Civil War. The Union army ordered its troops to evacuate Fort
Washita, Fort Cobb and Fort Arbuckle. When Confederate troops occupied the
area, they used the stone building at Wapanucka as a hospital and a prison.

Governor Winchester Colbert
Note: This is the second in a series of articles highlighting the burial place
of Chickasaw Governors since removal to Indian Territory.

The exact burial place of the second governor of the Chickasaw Nation,
Governor Daugherty (Winchester) Colbert, is somewhat of a mystery.

Former Gov. Winchester Colbert served the Chickasaw Nation for three terms -
1858-1860, 1862-1864 and 1864-1866. He led the tribe through tumultuous times
that included the runup to Civil War and the actual War Between the States.

While his leadership during this difficult time is certain, there appears to
be some question about the precise burial place of the distinguished governor,
whose appearance and fashion is often compared to Abraham Lincoln.

A 1940 biography of Winchester Colbert tells how the former Governor in 1866
sold his home near Oil Springs in the Chickasaw Nation and moved to Atoka
County, Choctaw Nation.

Gov. Colbert and his wife, Annica (Kemp) Colbert, later returned to the
Chickasaw Nation and made their home with their son Humphrey Colbert on
property located about 2 miles west of “the present town of Frisco, Johnston

The article, written by John Bartlett Meserve, went on to say when the
Governor died in 1880, he was buried in a family cemetery in a crudely marked
grave on the property near Frisco.

His widow, Annica, returned to the home in Oil Springs. She died in 1884 and
was buried in the family graveyard at Oil Springs.

Information about Colbert Cemetery published by the Pontotoc County Historical
and Genealogical Society fixes the grave of son Humphrey Colbert. The account
includes a story of the son who asked to be buried next to his father, and of
his father’s grave being subsequently bulldozed and covered with cement.

Other accounts on geology websites, such as, lists Gov.
Colbert’s place of death as Atoka County.

Pontotoc County Connection

Other evidence suggests Gov. Colbert’s grave was actually located in
Pontotoc County, Okla.

Writing about the first oil produced in Oklahoma, historian and Choctaw Muriel
H. Wright (1889-1975) describes an 1872 meeting at Gov. Colbert’s home. 
Excerpts of the 1926 article describe a meeting among certain citizens of the
Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations at Gov. Colbert’s home, in old Pontotoc
County, Chickasaw Nation in February 1872.

Other accounts seem to indicate the town of Frisco was located between
Fittstown and Stonewall in Pontotoc County, and was the original Stonewall
townsite. It was renamed Frisco when the present town of Stonewall was moved
about 3 miles directly east to its present location, according to the 1942
article “Reminiscences of Old Stonewall” by George W. Burris.

Beyond that, there is some question regarding Humphrey Colbert’s tombstone
and whether it actually marks his grave, since the headstones and possibly the
bodies, were moved from their original position prior to the construction of a
Although the exact burial place of Gov. Colbert may remain a mystery, his
legacy as an important Chickasaw leader is well documented.

Winchester Colbert’s legacy as a leader began long before he became

Born in the Chickasaw homelands in 1810, Winchester Colbert was the youngest
member of the Levi Colbert family. He was fluent in Chickasaw, Choctaw and

Like his cousin, the Chickasaw Nation’s first Governor Cyrus Harris, he
served as a diplomat for the Chickasaw Nation.

At the age of 16, he served as a Chickasaw representative in Washington, D.C.

After relocating to Indian Territory, Winchester Colbert worked diligently as
a diplomat to establish the Chickasaw tribe’s sovereignty.

He died in 1880 at age 70.

Gov. Colbert was inducted into the Chickasaw Hall of Fame in 2008.  His Hall
of Fame marker can be found at the Chickasaw Honor Garden, located at the
Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur, Okla.

The following collection of quotes from history sources provide important
information for understanding DaughertY's genetic and social identify.

RootsWeb's WorldConnect Project: FAMILY TIES
accessed at,

Winchester's will was probated in Pontotoc Co., Chickasaw Nation, IT, 17 F EB

From Kerry Armstrong's site:
"Daugherty (Winchester) Colbert although listed as a son of the large family
of Levi Colbert, and although he was reared as a member of that family, a
verification impels the conclusion that he was not, in fact, a son of Levi
Colbert. He is reputed to be the natural son of an itinerant, adventurous
white man by the name of Darrity. His mother was a Chickasaw woman. He was
received by adoption in to the family of Levi Colbert.

"He was invested with the family name of Colbert, his own father's name being
employed as his first name. But Darrity Colbert soon became Daugherty Colbert,
occasioned not only by a similarity in the names but also probably influenced
by the fact that a near relative of Levi Colbert bore the name of Daugherty
Colbert. The name Winchester Colbert was adopted by the young man some years
later and so through life he sometimes was recognized as Daugherty Colbert and
at other times as Winchester Colbert." (Memserve, John Bartlett, Chronicals of
Oklahoma, "Governor Daugherty (Winchester) Colbert", vol.XVIII, p.348).

Recent "Colbert" Scholars believe that he was the son of Samuel and Nancy
(Frazier) Colbert, (a younger son of James Logan Colbert), and upon Samuel's
early death, he was adopted by Levi Colbert. (See, Martini "Chickasaw

He removed to Indian Territory in 1837 and settled with his family near where
Canadian, Oklahoma is located today. The Colbert home was on the south side of
the Canadian River near North Fork, a community of the Creek Nation. Later in
life he moved to Pontotoc Co., Indian Territory. In August of 1858, he became
the second Governor of the Chickasaw Indian Nation. He was re-elected in
August of 1862, and again in August of 1864. He was the Chickasaw Governor
during the period of the Civil War.

Notes for Elizabeth Ann Carter COLLIE

Elizabeth Ann Coulter is attested as the wife of James Daniel Terry, who was
born in Virginia.  IN a matching marriage record in Pittsylvania County,
Virginia, James' wife is named Betsy Colley.

Betsy is a common nickname for Elizabeth, but Colley is so far undocumented. 
It seems to be Elizabeth's first marriage.  They wre both born around 1815,
and they married in 1833.  Young women in that era commonly married at age 16
or so.  Howver, one genealogy indicates her name Carter was a second middle
name.  A short biography on her husband's Find a Grave memorial gives her full
name and parents' names.  Note also Betsy's maiden nmae is speleld here as
Collie, while on her marriage record it was spelled Colley.
