    In the 1900 Chickasaw Nation census, two children are reported born inArkansas, Henry in 1885 and Oscar (Ossie) in 1887.  Note that thecensus reports Ossie was born in Arkansas, but at age 20, it wouldplace his birth in 1890 or 1898, not 1887.  The Borens probably movedto Indian Territory via Arkansas.  I have not found any furtherinformation on their short time in Arkansas.

    Note also that William's grandchildren were born in Arkansas, between1894 and 1902.
