Subject: Ahnawake MONK SACKETT
I am trying to locate any information about my cousin, Ahnawake.
She was the daughter of Georgianne Wilbanks Monk Evins and Walter Monk.
She was born in 1926 in Amarillo, Texas and died in 1989 in Denison, Texas.
She is buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Denison, Grayson County, Texas.

Ahnawake was the daughter of Georgianne Ghormley (not Wilbanks) Monk Evins and Walter Monk.
Her maternal grandmother was Lillie Blanche Wilbanks Ghormley Wilson, and her maternal grandfather was Michael Abram Ghormley.
From Michael -- See sister, Georgia, for other notes
Georgia and an older sister that I never knew about until after my mother died are both listed on the Cherokee Indian Dawes Records

I accidentally came across your site information when seeking information on Ahnawake, my cousin. Ahnawake's mother was the sister of my father.

Is the family Davis in this file the family of Nancy Davis the Indian woman? Also I found in a census that in the 1930 census that Ahnawake has a brother Billie Monk born in 1924. On ancestry.com in the 1930 census they lived in California.
To Nana M. Smith <Nmogburn@aol.com> 5 May 2009
I'd like to know your name, where you live, and how you fit into the Wilbanks family.

Both Nana and Michael suggest the possibility that Ahnawake may have been the mother of the three Evins children.
