    Leo Earl Merryman and Oda N. Reynolds

    My Great-Grandfather Leo Merryman, born in Kully Chaha (Kulli Cha ha),Sugar Loaf Co., Moshulatubbee Dist., Choctaw Nation, Ind.Ter., (nearpresent Poteau, LeFlore Co., Oklahoma) and later married Oda N.Reynolds.  I have put numerous postings on the Internet in my searchfor some long lost elder who may know a bit of family tree informationabout relatives to my great-grandfather or descendants of his siblingsor those of his aunts and uncles with not much success with contacts.

    My Great-Grandfather (Leo) was born in 1891 and his father before himwas David C. Merryman born also in the Choctaw Nation in 1853; whilehis grandmother Anny Scott-Merryman (and David's mother) was born inMississippi before the 'Trail of Tears' removal to the new ChoctawNation there in what of course became Oklahoma (aka land of the "redpeople").  Other spellings in past generations on Merryman - Merriman.

    U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900
    Annie Scott
    Birth Place MS
    Spouse Name William P Merryman born TN
    Marriage 1843

    William P. Merryman
    He was born in 1820, in Tennessee. His ancestry is not known, but heis thought to have been mostly French. He lived in Kentucky andGeorgia for a time, came to Indian Territory in 1844. Following thedeath of his first wife, Anny Scott, William Merryman married CarolineKrebs, a daughter of Stephen (Etienne) Krebs, brother of PlacideKrebs. He died at Skullyville, Choctaw Nation, January 27, 1881, andwas buried in Skullyville Cemetery

    Anny Scott Merryman
    She was born in the Choctaw lands in Mississippi in 1821. She was thedaughter of John Scott, a white man, and a Choctaw woman, whose nameis not known. Family tradition has it that Anny's Choctaw mother diedduring the trek to Indian territory, in 1832, when Anny was but 10.Anny Scott Merryman died Dec. 19, 1866, and was buried in SkullyvilleCemetery.

    Anny Scott and William Merryman were married in Parson, Texas, andmoved to Indian territory in 1844.

    Their children were:
    1. James Monroe
    2. Francis Jane
    3. Julia Ann
    4. Mary Caroline
    5. Martha S. (she died young)
    6. David C.
    7. John S. Merryman (Buried in Skullyville Cemetery, #117)
    8. Leathiann Amanda
    --  Skullyville,

    There is a slight discrepancy in the time and date of Anny's birth, inregard to the death of her mother.  The above Skullyville story saysshe was born in 1821, but then comments that her mother died in 1832when Anny was 10 years old, on the trek to Indian Territory.  Also,her parents' marriage record says they married in May 1821.  So herbirth was probably in about February 1822.  I guess there is a slightpossiblity that her mother was already pregnant nad they married closeto the time she was born.  Anny's Birth and death entries in her Bibledo not inlcude her birth date.  Also it would be interesting to hearthe story of how her family was involved in the trek to IndianTerritory and yet Anny married her husband in Texas and they did notmove to India Territory until 1844.

    Keete Giovanni, who had created Anny's memorial on Find a Grave, addeddetails from my research to the memorial.  Note that the date of deathis reproted here as 1821.  There is no date of birth on Anny'sgravestone.  Her parents married in May 1821.  So it is not likleyAnny was born in 1821.  It would have been about February or later in1822.   Descendant Russell Merryman, cited above, reports that hermother died on the Trail of Tear in 1832, when Anny wsd 10 years old,matching birth in 1822.
