This will be a brief entry as I am currently traveling outside of the United States. It is difficult to tranfer images and post while traveling. However, I am still researching whenever possible while I am traveling.
So, for now, I can only tantalize readers with a note about a blog to come, in the next few weeks. I have just located some newly indexed records of Fort Smith, Criminal Case Files, 1866-1900. Included in these files are court proceedings from the late 1860s involving Moses Crittenden and a charge from the United States that he had provided “spirits” to an “Indian”.
Once I am somewhere where I can download and study the many pages of documents I will post an article about what I find. I think I may be close to an answer as to the timing of why Moses relocated from Arkansas to Oklahoma when he did. This is one of the many research questions that have puzzled me and for which I did not think I would ever have an answer!
More info to come as soon as I have the ability to download and post.

I am also interested in when they came to Oklahoma and where they settled
