(Creek decent)

Died: November 1897

Thomas Amos was murdered along with his Brother-in-law Washington 'Wash' Hudson in November of the year 1897. (see Wash Hudson's page for details)

Notes: Peter James Hudson writes: "They were married in 1869 in Indian Territory at Eagletown in the Hudson Home that was bought from Cyrus Byington in 1867 by a Choctaw Missionary named Charles Cook Copeland. Missionary was heading back east and had stayed the night at the Hudson home, the next day he preformed the ceremony and left on his trip.... he died enroot before reaching his destination."

Notes: Peter James Hudson writes: "Pierce Homa was a brother of Cornelius, Silas and Wallace Homa, and had lived at my father's home, which was the old Cyrus Byington place. He and I had played together as boys. He was named for President Franklin Pierce and was the son of Filitahoma, a Creek Indian captured by the Choctaws during the war of 1812. He also had a brother named Folehoma, meaning "red stick", who had been chief of one of the Creek clans and was also in the war of 1812. My brother-in-law, Thomas Amos, was a nephew of Filitahoma and Folehoma. These two Creek Indians, after being captured, having been adopted by the Choctaws accompanied them in their migration to the west."

Born: Jan 15th 1881

Died: Jan 27th 1974 @ 2:30 pm.

Dawes #1608; Census Card #671; enrolled at age 21; full blood Choctaw

  Wife: Lena Wilson 

Lena Wilson's census card # is 528. Her enrollment is # 1105.

Her parents were David Wilson and Wicy Wilson. She is buried in Panki Bok Cemetery, south of Eagletown. Her headstone says 1900-1939, but her birth affidavit in her Dawes application packet says August 13, 1899. She died on March 19th 1939. 

From the McCurtain Gazette, March 22 1939

Mrs. Allen Amos

Eagletown, March 22--Funeral services were held Tuesday at 2 p. m. at Ponki bok cemetery near here for Mrs. Allen Amos, 38 with Rev. J. J. Land in charge.

Arrangements were under direction of the Coffey Funeral home of Idabel.

Mrs. Amos died at a Talihina hospital Sunday following an operation for appendicitis. She is survived by her husband, two brothers, Cole and Calvin Wilson of Eagletown and several other relatives.

Calvin Wilson was a Choctaw Code Talker in WWI. 

Note: Source of Lena Wilson's information provided by her Great Niece, Mrs. Margaret Wilson McWilliams - Thanks Margaret!

Allen Hudson says below:

 "It is at Ponki Bok (Millertown -website edit) that the oldest church building in the state is located; it was built of stone, quarried near its site in 1846 and notwithstanding the fact that it is approaching the Century mark (in 1839), is in a fair state of preservation at present.

There is an unfortunate circumstance in connection with this old church as the land on which it is situated is on the allotment of an individual and the existence of this church depends on the will of the present owner or on the wills of future owners.

Surely there is patriotism enough in the state and among prominent Indian families to save this relic of past history.

Allen Wright, an old and learned Indian Missionary of the Presbyterian faith, is buried in the cemetery at this place and many of his deeds are recorded on his tombstone and about one half mile west of Wheelock is the old residence of Governor LeFlore, a large double log house, the flooring and ceiling of which were rived of white Oak and dressed by hand."

Carrie Belle (Tonihka)

Born Feb 22, 1914

Died May 2, 2011

 Carrie Belle Tonihka Bohanan was born in 1914 and was living in Eagletown Oklahoma as of 2006. Carrie is very active and loves to attend her local church, she sews, paints, does crafts and enjoys reading her mail.

Very vivid in her memory is the loss of Carrie Belleʼs mother at a very young age and the beginning of her formal education, one in which she was not allowed to speak her Choctaw language.

Her father and grandmother cared for her and she was beside her dad at all times.

Knowing that Carrie needed an education, he and a friend drove her to Wheelock.

While she was being distracted by the Superintendent her dad walked out and left.

She chased after her father but was unable to stop him. She spoke very little English, only “yes maʼam” and “no maʼam.”

Carrie overcame and adapted to changes in her life.

She made eye contact with a young man attending Bacone as she was being transported to Oklahoma Presbyterian College.

In 1932, on October 31, they were married and enjoyed a long and happy life through lots of hardships, schools, colleges, and seminary where two Christian lives began.

Carrie did not continue her education along with her husband after they were married but began caring for the three children that blessed their lives and coping with life on a college campus.

She and the children remained beside her husband, attending meetings on local, state and national levels.

She held many offices in the womenʼs church work.

Carrie realized that the Choctaw Presbytery needed a van and she had heard about using green stamps.

She told her womenʼs group, “We can do it.”

She started a campaign for collecting green stamp books to large churches, writing letters to Presbyterian women throughout the United States.

Books began pouring in and in two years and with lots of prayers she collected the 2,000 needed books.

One name she remembers, because of who he was, Dick Clark, sent 600 books with a note from his church in Philadelphia.

It was a happy day when she and two pastors traveled from her area to Collinsville, Oklahoma, to exchange the books and drive the van home.

She dreams big, like a new beautiful church for Mt. Fork Presbyterian Church in Eagletown.

Again, she began her campaign by speaking, writing to churches, hard work, and local food and crafts sales to raise the funds needed, and again, she thanks her God because it was a reality and it is a beautiful church in the country.

Carrie is a positive person who wants people to reach out and do things for others.

She has received awards and honors on her accomplishments as working with a local teacher and local radio program, KBEL, Idabel.

News was announced in the English version and if it pertained to Choctaw families, then Carrie Belle translated in the Choctaw language.

She was supportedby Choctaw elders who encouraged and supported her actions and commended her.

Carrie used the Trail of Tears saga and performed a skit to show the people of the hardship and sadness the Choctaw people endured and also used it to help others to understand the Choctaw Removal.

She again received support from Choctaw elders and children as they worked with Carrie to carry out the skit.

She was selected as The Living Legend in McCurtain County by the AAUW in April 1966 and was also featured in Oklahoma Traditions in McCurtain County.

Carrie Belle is still very active with crafts, sewing, painting, and gardening.

At 92, her age may have slowed her down, but her daily routine begins with feeding the birds, admiring and talking to them.

She enjoys traveling and above all is proud to be able to remain at home, doing her housework and cooking for her family.

She gives thanks to God and reads her Bible daily.

She enjoys the song, “Let the Beauty of Jesus Be Seen in Me,” and we all see the twinkle in her eyes and a smile on her face. This is Carrie Belle Bohanan.


Carrie Belle Tonihka Bohanan, 97, of Eagletown, passed away May 2, 2011, at her home. The daughter of John Silas and Betsy (Hotubbi) Tonihka, Carrie was born Feb. 22, 1914, in Eagletown.

Carrie was a member of the Mt. Fork Presbyterian Church in Eagletown and a lifetime citizen of McCurtain County. She was an outgoing individual who accomplished much in her 97 years. She enjoyed painting, Native American arts and crafts, playing the piano and traveling. She will be remembered by those she met for her “smile and shiny eyes.” She enjoyed nature, especially the birds and flowers, and at one time had a radio talk show, “Smoke Signals,” on KBEL.

Carrie was always helpful to others. A motivator, she was instrumental in building the current Mt. Fork Presbyterian Church and getting the first van for the Choctaw Women’s Work. She was a very caring person who took children in need into her home.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, the Rev. John Bohanan; two sons, Preston Bohanan and Lyndon Earl Bohanan; two brothers, Ray and Johnny Tonihka; two nieces, Daisy Willmon and Theda Jefferson; two nephews, John Joshua Tonihka and Larry W. McCoy; and a grandson-inlaw, James Hart.

She is survived by her daughter, Toka Lee Horse of Eagletown; two daughters-in-law, Loretha Bohanan of Eagletown and Annette Maness with husband Harold of Hillsborough, Ore.; 10 grandchildren, Lisa Bohanan, Russell and Sharon Bohanan, Jimmy and Barbie Bohanan, Tracey and Robby Risner, Tim Bohanan, Tom Bohanan, Tamara and Bob Hyde, Teresa Hart, Sharon and Dale Fitzsimmons, Lt. Col. T. Jay Hunting Horse with wife Christi; eight great-grandchildren, one great great- grandchild; several nieces, nephews, a special friend, Laura Carney of Smithville, and a host of friends.

Theodore was the grandson of John S. Tonihka.

He served in the Marine Corps. He was a member of Mt. Fork United Presbyterian Church and was the caretaker of the Tonihka Cemetery.
