Come enjoy these photographs of our Caddo people from the past and from the present. Please have patience while all the images load. I have taken care to try to label each one of the images as accurately as possible, but there are a number of different discrepencies that appear in these photos over time. If you know about the particular history of an image or have a correction or question, please don't hesistate to contact me!

Caddo Dance, 1892. *10.6

10.1: Maurice was the first chairman of the Caddo Tribe under the Constitution. He's the father of Ann Donaghey, Baddy Bedoka, Dr. Guyneth Cardwell, Joyce Smith and Maurice Bedoka Jr. notes by Jennifer Reeder.

10.2: (Jennnifer Reeder) Louisa Elliott and Strongman (parents of Bessie Wolf Reeder, Paul Frank and Grace Frank) Louisa also had children with her first husband Whitebead – they are Elliott’s and I have never found any pictures of them

10.3: (Jennnifer Reeder)I found this negative in my grandma Ruth Wilson Reeder’s (daughter of Lottie Parton and William Wilson) belongings – this would be her mother-in-law Bessie Wolf Reeder (sitting), we don’t know who the girl is standing but have guessed that it’s the younger sister Grace Frank because she looks a lot like Paul Frank or it’s one of Louisa’s children from her first marriage to Whitebead, maybe Eavie Elliott. Paul’s first wife was also named Grace Atkins Frank – totally different family.

10.4: Katherine Proctor Franks is grandmother to Gina Sage, who gave me the image. This is Katherine at the 1938 Indian Expo in Anadarko. She speaks fluent Caddo. (Gina Sage) She [Katherine] now lives in Fresno, Ca., along with most of my family. She had lived in Binger (Murrows Dance Ground) until she was married I believe around age 20. Her mother was Grace Akins and Father was Paul Frank, which I had taken a couple of the pictures of him off your web site for birthday in October she is 91 years old and of sound mind and body.

10.4: 1. Thurman “Sonny” Parton 2. Madeline (Franks) Hamilton 3. Lucy Wabaunasee 4. Doyle Edge 5. Lyman Kionute

10.5 Her oldest child was Roland Coats born in 1894, daughter Ethel Coats born in 1899, daughter Mable Coats was born in 1902, daughter Emma Coats was born 1905, then she had 2 kids that went by the last name of Stamp they where daughter Nora Stamp born 1907 and son Elman Stamp born in 1914.
