Kiowa Agency-Delaware Indians

FWIW:

I finally got around to looking at/scanning my copy of microfilm roll 50, Kiowa Agency records, from the Oklahoma Historical Society, in preparation of a new book. Towards the end is a section entitled, Kiowa Agency-Delaware Indians, Nov. 4, 1870 - Sept 15, 1896.

I did not look at the stuff carefully -- it was late, there's a snow storm a-coming -- but I made note of it in case some of y'all might be interested.

Re: Kiowa Agency-Delaware Indians

So I got back to Harvard to copy some more microfilm to digital (freebie for “visiting researchers”), including taking a closer look at the Delaware stuff on KA 50.

There are  two files, both somewhat of a miscellany of materials (1) 1857-1930 [41 pages, 17k] and (2) 1870-1896 [143 pages, 77k].

(1) contains what appears to be a census.

(2) The major part of the second file is a ‘daybook’--a daily ‘sales register’ -- of trader John Osborn, son-in-law of Black Beaver, ca 1870. It is interesting for its detailed look at the micro-economics of early the settlement at Wichita Agency (pre-Anadarko).
[But it got boring copying it, so I skipped the last 30 pages or so. I figured, we know where it is, and if anyone decides it is important, we can get back to it.]

I have these both as PDF files. I think my mail program can handle them, so if anyone wants a copy, please contact me: tkavanag at comcast.net.

Re: Kiowa Agency-Delaware Indians

Cool, I once looked at a daily ‘sales register’ -- of Black Beaver's, but I don't remember where it was, if it was at the Wichita Agency (pre-Anadarko).  It was in a pdf at an Ok institution. I can't remember if it was Oklahoma Historical Center, or University of Oklahoma. I think University of Oklahoma.

It was online, where ever it was, but I've noticed sometimes things online don't stay online.

Chevy: If you are using Outlook, try tkavanag@indiana.edu; apparently Comcast doesn't like Outlook.

TH: I'll send 'em to you and you can try. Address?

Re: Kiowa Agency-Delaware Indians

Turns out Comcast is giving me a limit on sending  the larger of these files ;-( and I don"t have access to Zip files ;-( ;-(. ) I'll just keep trying alternatives.

Re: Kiowa Agency-Delaware Indians

Yes, it works.

I tried to send you the big file via my Indiana account, but it wouldn't take it either. I'll have to split it into two files.

Another time.
