Guys, I have seen those Dawes applications. Here is my transcript of Hartwell's...
Note: The form was hard to read, but the typing information was legible.
"That the post-office address of your petitioner is Salasaw, I.T. (Indian Territory) That he is a mixture of white and Cherokee, and is at most one-fourth Cherokee blood. That he, derives his Cherokee blood from his mother, the late Nellie Walker nee Chism, who was a Cherokee by blood, and was the daugher of the late _______ Dark who was a Cherokee Indian woman, and who lived in the old Cherokee Nation in North and South Carolina, and who spoke the Cherokee Indian language; and was a Cherokee by blood, and was a member of the Cherokee tribe of Indians."
As you can see, Hartwell (Owen Kindrick's grandfather) appears to be, at least partly, the source of his story.
