Whites in Skullyville County, Choctaw Nation: Permit Register 1889 - Feb. 19, 1905; Choctaw Volume 222 - Sandra McKim. In Indian Territory, whites and non-Indians needed permits to enter and work. There were two types of non-Indians in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) before statehood: Non-Indians in the Territory with a permit and Intruders (non-Indians in the Territory without permission). The Choctaw citizen/landlord was responsible for obtaining the permit that enabled the non-Indian to rent and farm the land in a system of share cropping. This book lists whites/non-Indians in the Territory with permission and the name of the Choctaw citizen they rented from. Renters generally, but not always, farmed the land they rented in what is often referred to as share-cropping. Columns list: the name of the Indian/citizen, the name of the white or non-Indian renter, the amount of money due for the land rental, and the amount remitted. (Some data is not available for the later years; 1903 and 1906 are not included.) A surname index adds to the value of this work. (1995), 2016, 8½x11, paper, index, 166 pp.
