Application for Cherokee Citizenship

To State; That the application for citizenship in the Cherokee Nation was made for Robert Dawson and family to the Cherokee Commission on Citizenship. September 24, 1881 at Tahlequah, Indian Territory by Francis M Dawson and his brother Elbert Dawson, claiming their rights to be admitted to Citizenship in the Cherokee Nation by reason of their descent from Polly Rogers. Who is claimed to have been a Cherokee Indian by blood and that Polly Rogers was a daughter of Captain John Rogers and Alsey Vann. also known through testimony as Annie Pruitt, that Robert Dawson was a son of Polly Rogers by Samuel R. Dawson Sr, a white man. The case continued from time to time until January 11, 1883, when the family of the Dawsons was admitted by the Cherokee Court of Commissioners commonly known as the "Tehee Court" composed of Thomas Tehee, President and of the commission: D.W.C. Duncan, Clerk of the Commission and Alex Wolfe and T.F. Thompson, Commissioners, upon practically the unsupported testimony of Dr. Arthur Baker. The other members of the Dawson family who were subsequently admitted were admitted upon the strength of the admission of the Robert Dawson family and proof of their relations to it.
