Ollie May Barefoot is my Grandmother. Her mother Was Elizabeth and her mother was Beddie Jane Barefoot. The roll number for Solomon Price is on the back of his military desertion papers from Bradley county, Tn. military records. For 10.00 you can get a copy from the state. The story I heard from the Indians who I talked to said that the Indians were rounded up and placed in hold "pens". They either signed up to join the military or they could choose to stay in the camp. They were not feed or allowed to leave; some choose to die. Most joined the military and as soon as they could they escaped, or as the military called it "deserted". I have no evidence of this story but would like some if anyone has it. There are records of many Indians deserting the military during this period of time. These records include the Roll number of the deserting indian stamped on the back of the form.
