Her tombstone says she was 60 years old and the "Mother of Nancy Wapaha".

Her Sioux name is the closest I can decipher from the documents where I have found it. It's somewhat different in every record:

1: It looks like HOHPIKASNASNAWIN, (as best I can decipher it) in the 1902 Register of Indian Families on film #1,015,911 at the Mormon library in Mesa, AZ.

2: On daughter Nancy's marriage license to John Wapaha it is again not possible to decipher it, but it looks the most like HO-OPT-TEN-SNA-RU??-WIN.

3: In the 1885 Santee Sioux census it is given as HAP????NAWIN, similar to the other two, but not quite the same.

There is a NANCY Stone listed in the Santee Death Register, Enrollment #528. She died 30 Aug 1890, age 75. Could this possibly have been Julia with her English name wrong?

In the 1887 Santee Mission Register her name is clear: Holipikasnasnawin.
