|Nathan Vaughan Marks||RE: GEORGE TIGER|
Hello, The Old Post Oak Cemetery where George Tiger is buried was surveyed in 1972. At that time, it was not cared for and was overgrown with weeds. I don't know its current state today. I work in Okmulgee and may be able to find time to venture there and seek out George Tiger's stone. But if it is still neglected, then I may not be able to locate it. If you want me to try though, let me know.
Also, the transcription of the stone in 1972 said that George was born in 1897, rather than 1892 as you said in your post. And if he died in 1915, that was before WWI Draft Registration occurred in 1917, so he would not have registered for the draft. I am looking at all George Tigers registered for the WWI Draft in Oklahoma, and I do not see any with the date of birth of May 10, or any that were born later than 1888.
Are you certain you don't have this George Tiger confused with another? Just checking, because I would be glad to try and assist you with this, but I am just trying to verify what you're telling me. Do you believe the 1915 year of death that was transcribed from the stone (which could have been misread) is incorrect? If so, what year do you think he died? If he died in 1915, he did not register for the WWI draft, because the first registration for the draft was not held until June 5th, 1917.

Hello- Thank you for your help. I am also part Creek Indian, and Scottish and Irish and a little English. I don't know the Creek language, but I have been reading books about the Creeks and their life to learn more about my family. Thanks again, Peggy
