This page is a dedication to all Choctaws
My Ancestors date way back to the indian removal.
As far back as I could go was to my 3rd Great Grandfather on My Choctaw side.

Henry Jefferson ( Choctaw Name - Hontubby, Hontubbie)
The oldest record of him was the Civil War
Henry Jefferson was 24 When he entered the Confederate Army On June 22, 1861
He was a Private  in "G" Company 1st Choctaw & Chicksaw Mounted Rifles.

The next record that was found with Henry Jefferson was in 1868
The Census of Sugar Loaf County, again in 1874, 1885, and again in 1896 noted in the 1896 census

Henry Jefferson does not appear in the 1899 census, it appears that  he passed away between 1897-1898
Josiah Jefferson, son of Henry Jefferson, stated in the 1900 Census that his Choctaw name was "Joe Hontubbie"

There is a small community 5 miles South of  Heavener Oklahoma, called Hontubby
The name came from my Ancestors Henry Hontubby (Hontubbie)
Hontubby translates to "wait and kill" in Choctaw.


Special thanks goes to
