    --  Lindsey,

    The genealogy reports her place of death as Johnson County, IndianTerritory, Oklahoma.  While correct at the core, most of the facts arewrong.  The name of the county is Johnston.  And in 1910 there was noIndian Territory.  Indian Territory was merged with Oklahoma Territoryand parts of Texas and unassigned Indian lands to become the state ofOklahoma in 1907.  Johnston County was formed in 1907 out of part ofChickasaw Nation land.
