Notes: He was married at one time to an indian from Oklahoma. My grandmother told me when he was married to her, they would walk everywhere they went. They came to visit her several times and they would walk. My grandmother said they would follow the river
most of the way. He was married several other times, but don't know the names of all of his wives. This is from Esther Yvonne Page Sanders, a great niece.

In the 1920 Census of Robertson County, it shows Joseph Aman, age 38, living there with his wife, Onamie, age 25, born in Oklahoma.
