    WM. BOONE's Application and Affidavits

    To the Honorable the Dawes Commission on Citizenship in the Five Civilized Tribes in the Indian Territory:

    Your petitioner WM. BOONE the undersigned respectfully states that he is a Cherokee Indian by blood and asks to be enrolled as a member of the Cherokee Nation of Indians in the Indian Territory.
    That he derives his Indian blood from his grandfather LEWIS BOONE who was the father of CAROLINE BOONE, who was the mother of petitioner. CAROLINE BOONE and DARCUS RICHARDSON were sisters and both were Cherokee Indians by blood.
    Your petitioner states the above facts as the lawful grounds of his application for citizenship in the Cherokee Nation and prays that his application may be fully investigated by your Honorable Commission and that he be adjudged to be a citizen in accordance with the laws and treaties with said Nation of Indians.
