This photo came out of an album my great Aunt Nora Nichols sent to my mother from Sapulpa, Oklahoma. The album once belonged to my maternal grandmother, Mary Wadsworth when she was growing up in Oklahoma. The original album was a black page scrap book with captions done in white ink. At some point, my now deceased mother, removed all the photos from the album and most of the pictures have no information on the backs of them. All that idendifies this picture is the name Jessie written across the bottom. It's possible he comes from the family of Samuel William Brown, Sr. or Samuel William Brown, Jr., both elected and Hereditery Chiefs of the Yuchi/Creek Native Americans from Sapulpa, Creek County, Oklahoma. After a little research on more old photos, I think this boy is Jessie Tiger, brother-in-law to Juanita Brown-Tiger of Sapulpa, Creek, Oklahoma. Juanita was the daughter of Samuel W. Brown, Jr. and Mattie May Payne-Brown. Juanita's husband also had a sister named Louise and have a few photos of her with Juanita and my grandmother, Mary Wadsworth in front of their home in Sapulpa. Does anyone know of this Tiger family? Contact me at [contact link].
Mystery: I am hoping someone will recognize this "Jessie" from other family photos they might have and tell me who he is. He is either a friend or relative of my maternal grandmother, Mary Wadsworth who was born in Sapulpa, Oklahoma and had friends in Wetumka, Oklahoma.
