I'm also searching for Sarah's ancestor, In an article I came across it stated that Nowatima was her maiden name.The artical was written about 1900 in a book called "History of Indian Territory, p.546 about Horace Sarah's son Benjamin J. Woods. A cousin of mine (Carrie found this info on a trip to OK). On a few of her children's Dawes records her children called her (Sarah)Nowahoke. She is buried in the Bohanan cemetery in Leflore co.,OK. Hope this helps.

Thanks Nicki, Carrie is my daughter, so I already have that info. But thank you for posting!

I think Nowatima might be her Indian name, rather than her maiden name. Someone told us that both Nowatima and Nowahoke translate to something like walking woman or walking girl - I forget specifically, but if you email Carrie at carrierodell@earthlink.net she could probably tell you.

This couple is linked to my family but I don't have anything yet beyond them. Are you looking for before or since them.
