Misc. Test. P. 2711

App. # 14094-11746. Dora Pennell

Eliza Andre being duly sworn, deposes and says:

"My name is Eliza Andre. I am 61 years old. I live at Fort Gibson. I know Dora Pennel. She is about 24 years old. Her name was Dora French before marriage. She is a sister to Tom B. French. She was born and raised near Fort Gibson, in Illinois District. She was enrolled by the Dawes Commission but I do not know her roll number. She got the bread and strip money. She has never associated or joined any other tribe than the Cherokees. She is a Cherokee Indian. She gets her blood from both mother and father. Her mother was Alice Kell. She is dead, died more than 30 years ago. There are Thomas B. French and James K. French, brothers to Dora Pennal, having same mother and father. Alice Kell was an Old Settler and got her blood from her mother, Julia Rogers. She was an Old Settler. Alice Kell's father was James Kell. Julia Rogers was James Kell's second wife. She was the Old Settler. James Kell was an emigrant I don't know how long he has been dead, but I think he died during the war. He was born back East, in Georgia or Tennessee. He came with the emigrants sometime between 1835 and 1838. I don't know whether he was enrolled in 1851 but think that he was. James Kell was married twice. Dora Pennal is by his second wife. I don't remember who his first wife was. The children by his first wife are Louis, John, Connie and Joe; Louise, Frank or Frances, and Nan or Nancy. They children by the second wife are Alice, Kate, and Jim Jr. Thomas Fox French was Dora Pennal's father. Dora Pennel's brothers and sisters are Bernice Howard, Mackie McDonald and Cricket or Nannie. Tom Fox French was probably not enrolled in 1851, being too young. His brothers were Robert French, Henry French, Mary French, Tom himself, and Cabble and Joe and Dick, Gypsey a girl, and Jeff French. He got his blood from his mother. His mother was Margaret French nee Fields and she was a Cherokee and I understand an Emigrant. She was born in the Old Country. She came about the time the Emigrants came in 1836 or 1838. She never associated with any other tribe. I don't know her parent's names. I understood that they were parties to the treaties of 1835-36 and 1846. It was always understood that they were emigrants and I understood they all got money. I never heard the old folks say whether they got any. James Kell had a brother Dave Kell. Louise Gillespie is a daughter of James Kell. James Kell did not have any Indian name that I know of. I think the Frenchs and Kells were on the 1851 roll.
