Molly Hightower was my great grandmother lived in Okla. Possibly in the town or near Yukon.
My mother Geneva Ellen Bowen [Nutt maiden name] often talk about her, she said that Molly's father was a Cherokee Chief and that she married a white man and they had only one daughter and no sons, her name was Mary which was my mothers, mother. Mary wed Loyd Nutt an Irishman, which is my grandmother and grandfather. Loyd Nutt was appointed by Teddy Roosevelt as the top rider of what was know as the Rough Riders. The Rough Riders as I understand were a small group of men which rode there horses through Okla, Ks, an Mo. as a posse selected by the President to round up renegade Indians and outlaws of that time, late 1800's and early 1900's. I have a picture I will upload, perhaps the only one in existence. However my story is truly about Molly for she was I feel short changed in her short life. Her only crime was she fell deeply in love with a white man, and in those times this was considered a moral crime in society. So poor Molly was split between her race and he husbands. During the signing of the Indian roll Molly felt there was to much discrimination from the local townsmen to sign on, for it might mean her child would be described and they may have to move out of the town for safety sake. So Molly chose not to accept. Later she went to the courts and asked for her nationalization be submitted and the city counselman said that as far as he was concerned she didn't have any Indian blood in her, so without argue Molly accepted the terms for it seemed the best for her at the time. I haven't any pictures of Molly so I couldn't say weather she looked Indian but then her father was at one time a chief of the Cherokee nations and a Hightower. Would seem to me she was plenty Indian. So as fate would have it poor Molly loses again. Only in the future, at the time she thought she had luck on her side.
