    Father's name - Wesley Norman, Born Henderson, Kentucky.
    Mother's name - Carolina Kellam, Born Alabama.
    I was born in the state of Florida, Feb 7, 1867, while I was a very small girl my parents moved to St. Louis, Mo, My mother's brother, Dr. Kellam, kept insisting on us coming to Oklahoma and filing on free
    land. We did and father raised and sold cattle. We came here when I was just seven years old. My father was a white man, but mother was of the Muskogee tribe of Creek Indians. My great grandmother was Carolina
    Wetherford, daughter of Chief Wetherford of the Creeks.
    I went to a little Indian school about six miles east of Bixby, called the Wealaka Mission. Wealaka in the white man's language means "Coming Water". This Indian school was the only one for miles around.
    It burned last year (1936.) At the time we came to the Indian territory, there was an Indian Agency at Muskogee.
    My husband was Euohee Indian. The tribe was so small the Creeks adopted them into their tribe. He attended the Eufaula Mission at Asbury. He went among the Indians and preached. He was an old Circuit Rider. He was an Ordained Minister for twenty-one years after that. He became a member of the Council and through it's influence was appointed as the first superintendent for the Indian school called, "Euchee School for Boys" at Sapulpa, Oklahoma,
    It still stands, but belongs to the government at this time. Mr. Gregory died recently and was buried in the Indian cemetery six miles east of Sapulpa, near the Indian Baptist Church. This cemetery covers several
    acres.
