CHIEF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SMALLWOOD, Chief of the Choctaw Nation 1888-1890 Son of William Smallwood and grandson of Elijah, a white man from South Ca rolina who went to Mississippi and married Mary LeFlore, sister of Thom as LeFlore. William was a student at Choctaw Academy. The family settl ed in Kiamichi County. Ben, born 1829, attended Spencer Academy married An nie Burney, a Chickasaw Indian. He later married Abbie James. He was a mer chant and cattleman. Member of the Choctaw Council, served in the Civil Wa r, and a delegate to Washington. He retired to a farm and died Dec. 15, 18 91 at Lehigh.
Question proposed by A. Banister. Was Siani the mother of Isaac LeFlore J r. who was raised by her sister Mary and brother in law John McKee? Most i nformation states his father was unknown, yet his name ends with JR. indic ating his father was a Isaac LeFlore Sr. In reviewing the information myse lf, it too seems plausible, yet without death information on Siani, I wou ld not want to speculate further. My initial thought was that she had di ed as a child, yet there is a reference in her mothers will. Isaac is al so listed as illigitamate on some records as a step son of John McKee on o thers. However, without more data, I am not going to include this in the d atabase, but only this note and a short reference to look at this no te in the Isaac LeFlore Jr. page. JCT 2/12/04
