This is a portrait of my grandmother Lynn's grandmother. She called her Annie Little Wound. My grandmother Lynn's parents were Esther Yellow Hair and Harrison Marshall. Esther later married Harrison's brother Philip when Harrison passed away. Harrison and Philip had one older brother, Thomas. Thomas passed away at the Carlisle Indian School when he was a young adult. Thomas and Zintkala Sa were good friends, she wrote his obituary for the school paper. I'm trying to connect the dots here, assuming that Thomas, Harrison and Phillip were Annie's sons? I have no leads on Esther's parents.
The following was extracted from Pine Ridge Censuses by LaDeanne Miller:
Parents of Esther Yellow Hair (born 1907) were Daniel Yellow Hair and Louisa. [Please note that some Lakota translators confuse yellow and brown. So Yellow Hair could as well be the name Brown Hair.]
Children of Esther Yellow Hair and Harrison Marshall (born 1885, died 27 May 1929 in Pine Ridge, Shannon, South Dakota) were: a) Louisa Elizabeth Marshall, born 14 Dec 1927 in Pine Ridge, Shannon, South Dakota. b) Thomas Raymond Marshall, born 15 Mar 1929 in Pine Ridge, Shannon, South Dakota.
Children of Esther Yellow Hair and Philip Marshall (born 1883): a) Charlotte Marshall, born 14 Sep 1935 in Pine Ridge, Shannon, South Dakota.
From the following Pine Ridge Censuses: Jun 1886 Pine Ridge pg 257 30 Jun 1888 Pine Ridge pg 430 1 Jul 1892 Pine Ridge pg 441 1893 Pine Ridge pg 434 1 Jul 1894 Pine Ridge pg 203 30 Jun 1895 Pine Ridge pg 458 30 Jun 1896 Pine Ridge pg 81 30 Jun 1897 Pine Ridge pg 250 30 Jun 1898 Pine Ridge pg 440 30 Jun 1899 Pine Ridge pg 582
If I were told that Annie Little Wound was the daughter of Little Wound and Grease, I would believe it. Because I see some resemblance between Annie Little Wound and Little Wound's wife named Grease in the photo below. They are not exactly the same, but there is something which is similar. I can see what parts of Annie Little Wound facial structures could be from Little Wound and what parts from Grease.
It is a possibility that Annie Little Wound is the unknown girl of Little Wound in the genalogical tree of Lone Bull from Collier's field notes. See below, where males are denoted with triangles, females are denoted with circles and marriage is denoted with the equal sign (=). Based on the rest of the genealogy tree, it can be assumed that this unknown girl was the youngest child of Little Wound and the sister of Hunkpapa Sitting Bull (the famous one ?)
If Annie Little Wound was daughter of Little Wound. Then it is unlikely that her sons were Thomas Marshall, Harrison Marshall and Phillip Marshall. I would bet on Daniel Yellow Hair to be Annie's son.
That bet is based on 2 things:
1. Because the "Hair" part in the name Yellow Hair, could be a wrong translation of "Robe", referring to the hairy side of a robe. So the original name of Daniel Yellow Hair could have been Daniel Yellow Robe or Daniel Brown Robe.
2. The famous Hunkpapa Sitting Bull had an older sister with the name Yellow Robe Woman. Based on Lone Bull's genealogical tree, It is possible that Yellow Robe Woman was the wife of Little Wound. See discussion in the thread Sitting Bull from Nov 10, 2018 and Nov 17, 2018 in the links below: link link
So, mother of Annie Little Wound could have been Yellow Robe Woman (? a.k.a. Grease ?). If we remove the "Woman" part of the name Yellow Robe Woman. And if we add the name Daniel, then we get Daniel Yellow Robe. And then we can change Daniel Yellow Robe to Daniel Yellow Hair !
So a possible lineage is as follows: Little Wound (b.1828) + Grease (? a.k.a. Yellow Robe Woman ?) had a girl named Annie Little Wound. Annie Little Wound had a son named Daniel Yellow Hair (? a.k.a. Daniel Yellow Robe ?), who had a girl named Esther Yellow Hair (b.1907) who married Harrison Marshall (b.1885).
A possible check for this lineage would be for example: 1. To find out if Annie Little Wound married to Buffalo Bear (Bull Bear) from Itazipco (Sans Arc) and later married to Pole (according to Lone Bull's genealogical tree). Either Buffalo Bear (Bull Bear) or Pole could be father of Daniel Yellow Hair. 2. To find out if Annie Little Wound's brothers were George Little Wound, Yellow Bull, Running Horse or Bear Bull (Bull Bear).
Medicine Root district votes to change name of Kyle
KYLE – Sunday night, the Medicine Root District executive board voted unanimously 4-0 to change the name of the community of Kyle to Little Wound.
“After some discussion, we really wanted to honor Chief Little Wound by renaming the community after him, not a non-Indian Senator from South Dakota,” said James Toby Big Boy, Medicine Root district chair, “Marcel and the Bull Bear family came to the district and made a request to change the name of the community.”
