During the 1800s 41 Arikara Indians were enlisted as Indian Scouts for the U.S. Seventh Cavalry. 3 to 6 Arikara Scouts (disputed) have been killed at Little Big Horn. the rest have been discharged, some finding jobs and others went to school. Very little information about these Indian Scouts who are now recognize an veterans of war and buried at the Indian Scouts Post in White Shield North Dakota.What makes my ancestry search so hard is that according to information I just found was the Federal Census Office in the Commerce Department Building in Washington, D.C. caught fire. In 1921 the entire 1890 Federal Census of North Dakota was destroyed in this fire that 99% of the original population schedules were disposed of without being microfilmed. only surviving schedule of the 1890 Federal Census of South Dakota was a fragment of Jefferson Township, Union County, South Dakota. It is so important today to find people who have Documents, knowledge or oral history of this time period to get this information documented and certified before its gone. If you or anyone can pass on information to, please send - Thanks
If anyone can share information, please post it here or send it to me so that I can pass it on. Thank you!
