US Congressman. Born in Ardmore, Oklahoma, near Boggy Depot, Indian Territory, he was of Cherokee and Chickasaw heritage. He served the Chickasaw Nation as auditor of public accounts (1892-94), council member (1895), superintendent of schools (1897) and was mining trustee of Indian Territory (1900-04). Upon the admission of Oklahoma as a State, he was elected as a Democrat to the Sixtieth Congress and to the next nine succeeding Congresses, serving (1907-27). While in office, he worked on legislation affecting Oklahoma's Indians and played a role in keeping Indian homesteads under the protection of the Federal Government.
