Goingsnake Massacre, Indian Territory
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Wes T.
Description: People connected with the so-called "Goingsnake Massacre;" a tragedy which occurred on April 15, 1872, near the present-day town of Christie in Adair County, Oklahoma. [It was then in the "Goingsnake" District of the Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, hence the name. That District was named after Goingsnake, (also seen written as two words, Going Snake; in Cherokee, I-na-du-na-i) who was a respected warrior, gifted orator, and prominent political leader of the Cherokee Nation. He was born in 1758 in the vicinity of present day Nottely Lake, Georgia.] It is also referred to as the "Zeke Proctor Massacre"; "Tragedy of Going Snake"; "The Whitmire Schoolhouse Massacre" and the "Cherokee Courthouse" shooting. The Whitmire Schoolhouse was pressed into service as a temporary courthouse that day, due to security concerns at the usual venue. Great controversy surrounds the particulars of the shooting. Includes participants, victims, relatives of victims, law enforcement officials (U.S. Marshals, Deputy Marshals and their sworn posse-men), attorneys, Judges and court staff, Cherokee Nation officials, and other names found in researching the tragedy, all of which were somehow connected to the event, directly or indirectly. There are a lot of names found recorded in connection with this event that have not been located, and any assistance from FAG volunteers would be appreciated.
