Lizzie Tadpole Hooker
Birth: May 8, 1905, USA
Death: Mar. 1, 2000
Mayes County
Oklahoma, USA

~~~My cousin~~~

Lizzie Tadpole was born May 8, 1905 in Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, the daughter of Tiger and Sallie (Phillips) Tadpole. She was listed on the Final Dawes Roll as a fullblood and was given money in lieu of land. Later, her parents obtained the allotment of her late grandmother, Polly Vann Tadpole, for her and her sister, Betsy. Later, that land was condemned by the Corps of Engineers for the construction of the Fort Gibson Dam and Lizzie purchased another 'homestead'. That land is still in the family today.

Lizzie was nearly 40 when she finally married her husband, James T. "Skinner" Hooker. They spent time hunting and fishing and traveling. They were never blessed with children.

When Lizzie died, she was only 3 months from her 95th birthday. Though many strive to live a long life, Lizzie expressed sadness that she had outlived her husband, her parents and all her siblings. She said she didn't know why she had to live so long and added that she felt like Methuselah.

Toward the end of her life, Lizzie would speak nothing but Cherokee and enjoyed her visits with her cousin, Aaron, who she was close to.

Lizzie died March 1, 2000 and was buried in the Hogan Cemetery in Locust Grove, Oklahoma beside her husband, Skinner.
