CENSUS: Indian Census Schedule 1885. Choctaw, Union Agency, Towson County, Page 15.

#426 Becky Austin 40, f, Indian, Choctaw
#429 Mary Austin 30, f, Indian Choctaw

#431 Viney Austin 7, f, Ind.
#432 Lena Austin 5, f, Ind.
#433 Jane Austin 1/2 yr old, f, Ind.

Note: by Helen Austin 2010. The Mary Austin #429 may be the same Mary Charles born 1850, a widow who is on the 1900 U. S. Census of Choctaw Nation, Twp 6S, R21E who is living with Louis and Pauline. She could be a sister to Tobias. She is probably not the mother of Louis because the Dawes Card #1208 shows Tobias and Becky as the parents of Louie b 1878. There is a possibility that Mary was a first wife to Tobias and continued to live with Tobias and his second wife Becky in 1885. In that case she could be the mother of Louis.

See DAWES CARD #1207, #1208 and #5538 for further information about the children of Tobias and Becky. Card 1207 is for Tobias second wife Rhoda and their child Benjamin. Rhoda married second to Houston Jacobs and their child was Coleman Jacobs.
Card 1208 is about the son of Tobias and Becky named Louie/Louis whose wife was Pauline Garland.
Card 5538 is to verify that Lena Austin is the daughter of Tobias and Becky.
