Quatsey (Betsey) LittleDog. On the rolls she
starts out with only one name. Quatsey had children by four different men.
(1) Gun lay wee skee (2) Jonathan Blythe (NI). (3) Ocumma/John Welch (1/2
White). (4) Cho-yahgah Ti yoo no hul la, who married Quatsey Little Dog.

The first Indians or rather the full-bloods only had one name. For instance
as for back as I have found for my direct descendent, Little Dog/Gli oo di,
b. ca 1725 and wife Che-o-las-kee , one line of my maternal greats, had
three children and I descend from Quatsey/Betsy who was there after called
Quatsey/Betsy Little Dog. Betsy married or had four different men/husbands
and had a child from the first three and the fourth one named Cho-yah-gah,
later known as Choyahgah Tiyoonohulla, this being his father's name. The one
I descend directly from, she had five. Their names were Nancy,
Chesquahnita/Youngbird, Arch, Gah dah oo yo chan and Caroline, my 2nd. Great
Grandmother, married Standingdeer/A wi ga do ga. The names of her other
children from the other men were Wahheyuhcageeswkih/Pegion, Wilson Oocumma/U
ga ma and Blythe. All of the children were full-bloods except Wilson
Oocumma/Welch 3/4 (?) and Blythe 1/2, they had White fathers. These
remained East in NC. So this is where our first last names come from.
This is just one of the maternal lines. All were full bloods until my
mother was born and she was 1/2.

RE: Thank you !
Hey Charlotte,

Greetings from the state of Michigan - USA.

I just checked to see what kind of weather you're experiencing in Austria, we are experiencing very similar temperature readings. At this time, in my part of Michigan, it's 58 degrees F (14 degrees C), high for today, 66 degrees F (19 degrees C).

Thank you, I appreciate you speedy reply.

Have a wonderful day,

RE: Hello from Austria !
Yes if it is easy to do that, I would love to see anything of the Mautners if you do find any Birth of Wolfgang Mautner...that is the most important one I need to find of his birth. I have nothing to go on. I do have a picture of him and found on a picture of a Michael Mautner who lived in Missouri..who may be a close relative of Wolfgang.

I am researching my ancestry of the Mautners. I keep hitting block on the ones who came to MN. I havwe no record of Wolfgang Mautner. other than his age being 1804 and he died in MN. He is in the passenger with His wife Catherine b-1804 and Joseph b- 1837 or 1836 I have all the descendents of the family and on Wolfgangs death record it says his father was Michael. I think he has a brother or cousing who came too on the same ship in 1852 by the name Michael who is a year oe two younbger than he. He settled in Missouri. I do not know of any them. On the ship they spelled his name Mauthner, but it is Mautner. Also I have done a DNA test and the result say I have traces of Jewish descent. He is listed as a German Baptist from Behemia, Bavaria, Austria all diffrent census. I am wondering if they changed the religion because of the hard life in Europe there. If you could help me out it would be great. Oh and dthe other Mautner on the ship is a servant(Which is common back then to be part of payment) Her name was Sabille which is either a cousin of Joseph or a daughter of Wolfgang, not sure. she did not go to MN. This is a big task for me. I have the genealogy of my mother all of it except the Mautners, which would be my grandmothers maternal side Any hints????

Thank you for leaving flowers for my uncle. He was the last of my father's family. Four sons and four daughters - Grandpa came from Marktbergl Germany around 1880 - He had a wonderful life, had a great wife and three great children. I was lucky to attend his 100th birthday last June in Illinois.
Thanks again and I hope all is well and spring isn't too far off
As always, Jim

Charlotte.....I hope this message finds you well. Any chance that you live near Vienna? Might you be able to assist with this photo request?

Hi all. Is there anyone in this group that lives in Vienna, Austria? If so, would you be willing to pass by the address, listed below, and take a photo of the house and the street in general. I hope the address is enough to go on to show the residence where my great grandparents, Jacob Pisk and Irene Weiss, lived and eventually perished in the Holocaust. I would like to see a part of their history. Thank you.
Leopolds Gasse 22, Vienna, Austria.

Thanks. All the best

Robert Galcatcher
News Article - Robert Galcatcher - Stilwell Democrat Journal - June 2, 1960
Charges have been filed against Jim Harris, 39-year-old resident of Bunch, in connection with the fatal shooting of Bob Galcatcher, 30, Saturday night in a Stilwell parking lot. The shooting evidently followed an argument which started in a tavern owned by Rufus Rider in the 100 block on West Oak Street.

Bob Leatherwood, who manages the tavern, is have ordered Galcatcher from the place earlier in the evening for quarreling with Harris and other occupants. Adair, county Sheriff R. L. Swepston said Harris told him he had started to go home and was seated in his car with Art Myers, of Watts, when Galcatcher attempted to force his way into the front seat of the vehicle. The car was parked behind the Rider tavern. Harris said he feared Galcatcher was attacking him with a knife. Harris pulled a 25-caliber automatic pistol and fired one shot at Galcatcher from close range. The bullet entered Galcatcher's body in the right side, just below the shoulder, and left through his left chest.

The wounded man staggered approximately 20 feet into the Worley pool hall and fell back out of the door. Seconds later, he was dead.

Harris and Myers drove away from the scene. Approximately an hour later, officers said Myers called to inquire about Galcatcher's condition. When he was told of the man's death, he told Swepston he would bring Harris right in. The sheriff waited an hour and then he and Gene Philpott, undersheriff, decided to go after the pair; However, they met them, with one of Harris' neighbors, on the road to town.

Myers was placed under arrest in connection with the affair. He was later released. Swepston said. Harris was released Tuesday under a $6,000.00 bond.

Galcatcher was a former resident of this area but has been living in Tulsa for some time. Funeral services for Robert Galcatcher were held Tuesday, May 31, in Echota church, under the direction of Roberts Funeral Home. Burial was in Echota cemetery.

He was born March 4, 1930 in Stilwell. Survivors include the widow, Mrs. Ida Galcatcher of the home, in Tulsa; one son, Ronnie, also of the home; four brothers and three sisters.
