Sue Bodishbaugh I have the tiny original, owned by Pearl and passed down thru 4 generations. A letter from a man in Missouri told of his grandparents' info to him as a young child, of Dr. Flying Cloud passing thru, staying w/them for a time, preaching, that his plains style headdress came from Sitting Bull while he was at Big Horn, and Flying Cloud was then abt 4-yo. One day, as his norm, he took his Bible and walked on down the road. He was an old man by then and the headdress much worn and tattered. Last I have been able to track him. Family stories from Uncle James that he visited and ate w/the Dreher fam in McCurtain Co, OK regularly. Relative of the Thomas clan there, and husband's ggrandmother, Mary Frances Thomas [Mrs. George Dreher].
