Do you have family information to share? marriage of George Pealer
Comments:
I have been looking for the parents of an Elmira Hopkins, married Lyman McDaniel by Rev. Eyer, 1853. In researching this man I found a marriage for George Peelor, married Rebecca Hopkins, October, 1840 in Columbia County marriage records, online at Columbia Co. Gen Web. in the site marriage records listings. Elmira and Lyman were also married in Columbia County.

So your George was married to a Hopkins, whether Elmira is related to your Hopkins line is up in the air!

Do you have a family web page? What is the URL? working on it
Comments:
Seeking a Dale that was held as a prisoner of was during the civil war, came across a spelling very similar and wanted to pass it on. I was looking for a union solider, this is the name of a confederate solider, buried among the 2260 soldiers at the Camp Chase Cemetery in Ohio.
Dailey, Patrick PVT Company B Unit 1 Ga Inf
d. 13 March 1865
There are rows of soldiers buried on this plot. Many were after being housed in tents during the winter, malnourished when a cholera outbreak occurred and small pox struck many of the soldiers.
I have been helped so much by others on-line, that I wrote down, or did a rubbing of the first two hundred soldiers. I am hoping to find trees or twigs, to match them up to. As soldiers, though another war, the least I can do, is give them some kind of kinship, though after death. Somewhere for their names to belong, other that their tombstones.
Happiness and Joy,
Sandra Dale Welch

Comments:
Hi, Great little website on the McCalmants! Bit of info - Samuel McCalmant was Sarah Ann Bender's second husband. She married a Mr. Turner prior (bef 1852) - I'm related through their son: Charles Wesley Turner (b. 29 Jun 1852 Dekalb Co., IL - d. 13 Jan 1901 Minnehaha Co., SD). C W Turner married 7 Nov 1872 in Jones Co., IA to Sarah G. Courtney. Wondering if anybody has ANYTHING on father Turner. Must have died in Dekalb Co., IL abt 1852 - before the Benders headed to Jones Co., IA.

Comments:
My mother's maiden name is Quillen. I have her birth certificate. She was born December 11, 1920. Her father's name on the birth certificate is Earl Earnest, although I have seen it listed elsewhere as Earnest Earl. My mother was born in Stevens County,Washington. The town or city is listed as Orin. His age on the certificate was 24. His occupation listed as lumbarman, and birthplace Nebraska. I have more history. Some by word of mouth and some from work done many years ago (approx.1960?). I want to authenticate the existing information as much as possible but not sure how to go about it, other than with birth certificates, death certificates, cemetery grave stones? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you, Carla Stangel

I have located a family photo of one of your relatives. Her name is Barbara Aileen Masterson. I don't have any other info, but I figured a family member would like to have it rather than someone who doesn't even know her. I don't have any contact people in the Masterson family. I did a search on the internet and you are the first one I came up with. If you know who to send this on to, perhaps it will be of help and they will be grateful to have this photo. Please email me with any info.
Thanks

Dailey, Truman W., and Jill D. Hopkins. 1993. "Native American Church Songs of the Otoe-Missouria and Ioway." In Proceedings of the 1992 Mid-Atlantic Linguistics Conference and Conference on Siouan/Caddoan Languages, edited by Evan Smith and Flore Zephir, 303-17. Columbia, MO: University of Missouri, Columbia.

















The Otoe and Missouria, along with the Iowa (q.v.), are part of the Chiwere group of the Siouan linguistic family." (Wright, p. 199) By the 18th century the Otoe resided near the Platte River in present day Nebraska and the Missouria lived on the Grand River in what is now Missouri. By 1817, the Missouria numbered little more than one hundred people and united with the Otoe in the interest of peace and survival. Since that union, the Otoe-Missouria has been recognized as one people by other tribes and the federal government. The Tribe's own social organization acknowledges a more distinct separation. (Otoe-Missouria Tribe, pp. 11-12)


The Clans
The Ioway traditionally stated we had 7 clans. The number 7 is significant to us. There are some stories that once there were more than the seven, and I have counted more myself that were mentioned in old writings, but most go with 7. These 7 are:

1. Black Bear

2. Buffalo

3. Thunder/Eagle

4. Wolf

5. Elk

6. Pigeon

7. Owl
Now I know we also once had Beaver and Snake as well, and probably others.

The Clans (in Ioway language "wokigo" (woh-KEE-goh) each had separate origin stories, about their origins and how they joined together to become the Iowas. This joining happened even before the Iowa and Otoe (and other tribes like the WInnebago) split up, so that is why we have similar clan systems.

For the Ioway, the Clan was traced through the father's line, through your father's father's father, and so on. This is why in some articles you will see the word "Gens" (singular) or "Gentes" (plural). In anthropology of years ago, anthropologists called patrilineal (through your father) groups "gens/gentes" and matrilineal (through your mother) groups "clan/clans."

Each clan not only had a separate story of where they came from, and how they joined together to form the ancestral Ioway-Otoe, each clan also had special duties, privileges, and rights. And each had a special clan bundle with clan pipe.

For example, the Bear was said to have brought the first pipe and to have brought the clans together (some clans have it differently). The Whitecloud family was Bear Clan. The Bear Clan and Buffalo clan shared leadership of the tribe. They alternated through the year, so that during fall and winter the Bear Clan led the tribe, and during spring and summer the Buffalo Clan led. This changed to some degree with the establishment of reservations, as leading families were made permanent leaders through their relationships with the U.S. government. This is why the Whitecloud family of the Bear Clan became the leaders of the Northern Iowas. Most of the rest of the clans and even some other Bear Clan and Whiteclouds went down to Oklahoma in the 1870s-1880s. Both Buffalo and Bear Clans had doctoring societies.

Although in periods of peace the Bear and Buffalo led the tribe as described, in times of war, the Thunder/Eagle clan took the lead.

The Buffalo Clan brought the corn and other crops, and led the tribe at times, as described.

The Wolf Clan brought the bow and arrow.

The Beaver Clan taught people how to make earth lodges.

The Snake Clan laid out the village site and made peace with the Snakes.

The Elk Clan brought the fire, and tended the sacred fire. Occasionally, Elk clan had "mixoge" (mee-KHO-gay), men who dressed and lived as women. Watch the movie "Little Big Man" and pay attention to the character "Little Horse" to understand their place in traditional Indian society. They were not made fun of and had their place.The Owl Clan had special medicines and powers.

The Pigeon Clan was a peace making clan and brought other powers.

So you see, since each clan had a special power and duty, each clan was needed for the tribe to function as a whole. Although some were leaders, each had a special purpose. For example, although the Bear was a leading Clan, it could not do without the Buffalo's corn planting rights, or the Elk's fire rights. All were needed.

Also, each clan had a supply of special clan names that only that clan's members could use. For example, one of the Bear Clan names was "Pa Huye" (Pa = head, huye = to shake = Shakes His Head), referring to the time when the Bear Clan ancestors in the form of Bears dug their way toground's surface, and coming up, shook their heads free of dirt. There were many of these names in each clan which referred to incidents the clan went through during their origin story. So when a clan got all its members together, through those names, a clan origin story was there in living flesh and bone. Each name could only be held by a single living member, so that when the person died, the name became available and was assigned to another young tribal member. So the stories lived on.

As far as what clans we are today, some are fortunate enough to know their clan, and to have been given one of these names. Not all of us have these names, because of the destruction of our tribe's traditions to a large extent.

Clans could adopt people as clan members. I do not know how many of the clans are left, besides the Bear and Buffalo. I think I have heard there are Elk members living down in Oklahoma, possibly the Blacks. Truman Dailey was Eagle clan. I heard that the last Pigeon Clan members died years ago. The Snake clan was extinct in the last century. The Curley family was Owl Clan, the Kents are Buffalo, the Whiteclouds are Bear. Now you know we have other tribes mixed in as well, such as the Yankton, Omaha, Otoe, and Sac and Fox. The Deroin family was descended from Otoe Bear Clan. The Barada family were descended from Omaha Buffalo clan, and the Murphy family, if you look patrilineally as the guide, were descended from Sac and Fox Thunder Clan (Black Hawk was Thunder Clan Sauk).

Other tribes did not follow the clan system. None of the Sioux did, including Yankton or Santee or Lakota. They followed a different kind of family/descent structure based on bands and what is called "tiyospaye" (tee-YOH-spah-yay), the extended family.

If the Iowa tribe today were to try to reinstitute clans, it would require some deep thought. If you ask most northern Iowa today what clan they think they belong to, most say Bear, because most northern Iowas are related to the Whitecloud family one way or another.

The Ioways and tribes in our area denoted clans by names, by face paint, and I have been told some also put clan designs on breechcloths.

In paintings of Whitecloud, note how in many versions there is a green mark (green was a Bear clan color) and four stripes (either part of a handprint or like a backwards "E" with an extra bar), which symbolized a Bear Paw.

Another color was blue that was used by the Thunder-Eagle clan for face paint (and one painting shows a rainblow on a Thunder Clan chief).

Much like everything has been lost over the years.

The Otoe and Missouria, along with the Iowa (q.v.), are part of the Chiwere group of the Siouan linguistic family." (Wright, p. 199) By the 18th century the Otoe resided near the Platte River in present day Nebraska and the Missouria lived on the Grand River in what is now Missouri. By 1817, the Missouria numbered little more than one hundred people and united with the Otoe in the interest of peace and survival. Since that union, the Otoe-Missouria has been recognized as one people by other tribes and the federal government. The Tribe's own social organization acknowledges a more distinct separation. (Otoe-Missouria Tribe, pp. 11-12) The Otoes and Missourias once owned land in Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska (map #1). In about 1800, the Otoes and Missourias lived in Nebraska between the Great Nemaha River and the Platt River. In 1816, Auguste Chouteau prepared "Notes" about where certain tribes lived (map #3).


The Otoes and Missourias before 1854 held their lands by Indian title. In that year they received land on the Big Blue River by treaty title. Because of pressure from white settlers, between 1830 and 1881 the Otoes and Missourias were convinced to give up more and more of their land to the U.S. government (map #2). With each treaty, their reservation got smaller.
Wave after wave of white men settled all around the Otoe reserve on the Big Blue River. Dr. Grant Foreman said that the white people, "made the lives of the Indians so wretched that they were anxious to escape to the Indian Territory." (Foreman, 19??). The Otoes and Missourias gradually came to the conclusion that it was best for them to remove from their reservation in Nebraska and Kansas to Indian Territory.
In 1881, the Otoes and Missourias in Nebraska and Kansas sold what was left of their reservation and moved to Indian Territory. The new reservation on Red Rock Creek (in current day Noble County, Oklahoma - maps ok1889, and ok1900) had been chosen by a delegation from the tribe and purchased with tribal funds.

Lizzie (Dailey) Harper: "My Indian name is translated to 'Standing on the Earth'... I was born north of the agency here... We practically always had white people with us because my father always had hired hands of different nationalities. Mother was busy housekeeping and she had to cook for and take care of the hired hands. My father was hardly home because he was the captain of police and all his time was at the agency. So mother and grandmother had to carry on the home work and I was just a little girl..." (Otoe-Missouria Tribe, p. 34)

Lizzie (Dailey) Harper: "A woman from the Blackfeet, Miss Clarke, she's the one who came and surveyed this reservation. And a lot of our old people, if they see the rocks, cornerstones, the four rocks marking the lines, well, they take them and throw them away. They didn't want that. But the law come and told the old people to take those rocks and put them where the cornerstones were supposed to be. So that was it. Allotment one and ten years later, Allotment two." (Otoe-Missouria Elders, p.35)"Every day my father rode the line. We was just about three-eights mile from the line. He'd go north one day and back, next day he'd go south and back. Then when they had allotment they chose theirs over there, and when they built them government houses, they got one of those. They built on my father's place, on his allotment. And by that time my grandmother (a member of the Iowa tribe) had my father to start farming. Several years, they added on to that house -- both sides. When I was born and began to remember, we had a big house. Five rooms on the main floor and three rooms at the top. Had a big barn. Big fields of corn. Big orchard.
"And my grandmother knew about orchards, and when they built the house my grandmother told my mother to tell my father to establish a yard and plant an orchard. On the east side the yard run about a eighth of a mile or a little longer. And then on the south, it was about the width of an acre and a half. And then on the west side and on the north-again.Truman Dailey: "When my father and mother got married and they got started, he was kind of a policeman. They had range riders. The north, west, and south boundaries of the reservation, there was an Otoe would ride that line every day. Dad got that job on the west line over there, riding it north and south. This was before allotment, and they could live wherever they wanted to on the reservation, so to be close, Grandma said best to move over there. So they built a cellar over there near the west line. And course Dad's 'brother' Burgess was handy -- he learned carpentry at Hampton -- so they bought lumber and they built kind of a three-room shack over there.


Burgess "Every day my father rode the line. We was just about three-eights mile from the line. He'd go north one day and back, next day he'd go south and back. Then when they had allotment they chose theirs over there, and when they built them government houses, they got one of those. They built on my father's place, on his allotment.

On the east side the yard run about a eighth of a mile or a little longer. And then on the south, it was about the width of an acre and a half. And then on the west side and on the north-again.
Dad plowed a furrow around all four sides, made it straight. And he planted walnuts a-l-l around the outer circle of the yard. So when I was born and remember, them tree, to me they was tall, and every fall we'd have a g-r-e-a-t big pile of walnuts. And then inside was our orchard. We had apples, pears, peaches, plums and cherries. That's all I know about the orchard. And then later on, when that land was settled and them homesteaders come in there, it was their style to put out a vineyard. They'd make wine. So after they began to get acquainted with them, I guess Mother and Grandma would go out there and see that, and so then we had a vineyard. Four rows, maybe a hundred yards long. We didn't make wine, but there was grape jelly, grape jam, fruit in season.
My grandmother was the instigator of all that..." (Stanley, p. 152-154)























Grace Kiheaga: "Grandpa White Horse.... was a great doctor in Otoe. My grandma (Sallie Whitehorse) was a great woman. She too, was a real Indian doctor. She worked with grandpa. He cured many of his people in the Indian way.... I follow them, but I don't go in when grandpa is doctoring. I keep out. But my grandma works with him. If it's a woman, my grandma doctor the lady. a woman gets sick, grandma takes care of her. Then my grandpa, he takes care of the man if he sick, but my grandma still works with him. They both work together..." (Otoe-Missouria Tribe, p. 37)

Truman Dailey: "In older times, there were four categories boys might strive to achieve. The highest rank was to be a leader. He could be a leader for his people. If he couldn't do this, then the second rank would be a warrior. Protect the village. Get him to sacrafice his life for the people. Now, if the boy couldn't make any one of these, the next he could be a hunter. He could provide food for the village as well as himself. The next one he might do was to study medicine, or to become an apprentice by attaching himself to an old man who had this knowledge. It took him ten to fifteen years. The medicine people are in charge of the health of the tribe. There are also some medicine women." (Otoe-Missouria Tribe, p. 30)

Otoe Agency School John Childs: "I went to school over here... I would say that I was about seven or eight and there were about eight kids that went to school here, who lived in the dorm. All government schools are strick with the children. Lots of them used to run away. They would say, 'Let's run away and go on home.' School just went half a day. The rest of the day, we did painting, carpentry or farming. We had cattle and grew our own food... At that time we had a watchman whose job was to walk around the school and so forth. If anybody ran away, well he went after them. We also had an interpreter." (Otoe-Missouria Elder, p. 28)

Truman Dailey: "My parents told me to go to school. What my parents said, I followed it. My grandma said, 'You must always try to be an Indian, in your heart and thinking, although you are going to live like a white man.'" (Otoe-Missouria Elders, p. 33)

minority languages around the world. The International Publishing Services
serves SIL by developing products to assist in the publication of
linguistic texts.

We are happy to make these IPA fonts available to the general
linguistic community at no charge. More SIL fonts, containing a much
richer phonetic character set (1300+ characters) can be obtained at a
reasonable cost by using the order form provided in the electronic
documentation.

You may (and are encouraged to) share these fonts with your friends
and co-workers, but with the following restrictions:

* All files must be copied together, including this one.
* No fee may be charged for the fonts

Even though these fonts are "free", SIL retains all copyright and
ownership of the included fonts and reserves the right to restrict
their use and distribution at any time. They may not be used as a
basis for other fonts. They may be placed on bulletin boards, etc.
but cannot be included in (or bundled with) any commercial product
including hard disks or CD-ROMs without specific written permission.

ATTENTION POSTSCRIPT USERS WHO ARE UPGRADING
FROM VERSION 1.0 (SIL Premier IPA Fonts):

If you have been using the PostScript fonts from an earlier version of the
SIL Premier/Encore IPA Fonts you should be sure to de-install those fonts
(using the ATM Control Panel) before installing the new fonts. If you only
use TrueType, the provided installation program will automatically remove
the older fonts from your system before installing the new ones.


INSTALLING IN WINDOWS

The SIL IPA Fonts 1.21 come with a utility to automatically install the
TrueType fonts and documentation in Microsoft Windows. There are two
methods you may use to run it from File Manager.


Do NOT attempt to run INSTALL from the DOS command line. INSTALL is a
Windows program; it will not run under DOS.


Method 1:

Select the drive icon where you have placed the SIL Encore IPA Fonts disk
or the files downloaded from an on-line service. Find INSTALL.EXE in the
directory window and double-click on it.


Method 2:

Select File; Run from the menu bar. At the prompt, enter the drive letter
containing the font installation diskette, followed by a colon and
backslash and the word INSTALL.

Example: A:\INSTALL

In this case, the fonts are being installed from drive A.

If you downloaded the fonts from Internet or CompuServe or another on-line
service, enter the drive:\directory where you placed the files.

Example: C:\DOWNLOAD\INSTALL

In this case, the files were placed in the \DOWNLOAD directory on drive C.
(Enter the actual drive and directory where you placed your files.)


Note that INSTALL will automatically install TrueType fonts. It will NOT
install PostScript fonts. If you are using PostScript fonts, you will need
to uninstall them first and either remove the files from your hard drive
or else plan on installing the new font files to a different directory.


When running INSTALL, you will be given the opportunity to select what you
want to install. The default is to install everything and use TrueType fonts.
You may change this if you wish. Additionally, you may opt to install Fonts,
Utilities, and Documentation in different directories. Just
follow the instructions and respond to the dialog boxes. If you are uncertain
about something, click on the HELP button.


INSTALL will automatically terminate when finished, with either a message
stating that the fonts were successfully installed or that there was an
error. If there was an error, you will get a message before exiting
informing you of what went wrong.


CHANGES FOR VERSION 1.2

***Linking Character***

Character 237 in the original (1.0) IPA fonts was a non-spacing diacritic.
This really should have been a spacing character. Although the IPA calls
that character a "Bottom Tie Bar" (analogous to the Top one in code 131),
it signifies "Linking (absence of a break)" and is used to link two sounds
that are written with a space between them. Hence, these fonts have 237 as
a spacing character.


***Doulos Character Spacing***

After a number of comments from users, we have "relaxed" the spacing of the
SILDoulosIPA font to conform to that of the SILDoulos fonts in the SIL Encore
Fonts. This means that there will be more spacing between the characters,
making the text easier to read. This also means that texts set in the original
SILDoulosIPA will have different line breaks if opened on a computer with the
new SILDoulosIPA. If you have a strong reason to retain the original spacing,
do not install this new font. We do however recommend that you use this new
font.


***Sophia Dieresis***

The three dieresis characters (45, 95, 208) in the SILSophiaIPA font now have
dots spaced further apart.


***Manuscript Space Width***

The space character in the SILManuscriptIPA font is now (reliably) equal in
width to the other characters.


CHANGES FOR VERSION 1.21

The KEYMAN utility was added with the keyboard translation file IPA.KMN.
