  1. Dollar to a doughnut, the dress was made out of a flour sack. My Mother made me a shirt out of a sack that looks like that design.

  2. That’s what a lot of my clothes were made of and I was prod of what my mother made for me

  3. The flower sacks came with designs just where the customers had the option of using the material. Right?

    1. Yup. I have been looking for some flour sacks just to have.

  4. That’s right back then there are a lot of pretty flower bags

  5. The Choctaw Nation of Indians also referred to as the Cajun Indians of Southwest Alabama.

    The Missionaries continues their work as the American Board of Foreign Missionaries in the 19th century.

    The various denominations of religions began more Indian Missions in the Community from about 1910-1950’s.

    The last Native American Indian mission was provided by the Quakers on the border of Mobile and Washington County Alabama at the Sanktown Community in February of 2018.

    The school was the Weaver School – It was actually a “weaving and spinning school” originally.

  6. The Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians (the names were interchangeable and did change from time to time depending on who was writing) were always home to Mobile and North Mobile County and have always been documented in the Weaver, Byrd, Orso (Juzan/Hollinger), Calvert (Colbert) Community or smaller communities.

    The facts are often obscured by historians for various possible reasons.

    The families and their communities are among the most well documented in American History even when deliberately obscured by others who have purported to be historians.

    1. Darby Weaver i was told that my great great grandfather would send family to woods whenever census folks came to hide the “Indian” members so my history is missing pieces

    2. Darby Weaver I have ancestors from this area that moved back and forth between Washington and Clarke County and Mississippi throughout the 19th century. I haven’t been able to find records for the Gibbs family members prior to 1840 and have been told they were Choctaw. What are my research options outside of the standard paths?

    3. Start with Vital Records. When one is working with a single family it is relatively cheap by comparison of taking on the entire community’s records.

      If you want to know who you are start with your immediate family.

      If you already know where your people are then you are 90% there.

      Some don’t know this much.

      I have not yet ran into the Gibbs surname yet.

      Most of our people intermarried repeatedly with other further extended family members.

      There are exceptions but this is more 10% per generation maximum.

      Then the next generation just married back in again.

      To the effect that some surnames joined the community successively.

    4. I guess the easiest question is to ask who are your grandparents and great grandparents.
