Transcribers Note: Some corrections made to punctuation & spelling for clarity.

This small seemingly insignificant claim is important in that it confirms that Sixkiller and Sallawee were brothers.  Emmet Starr lists Sixkiller and Scraper as brothers in his unpublished notes, yet he does not mention Sallawee.  The Miller application of Charley Scraper does mention all three as brothers, and other Miller applicants also show this relationship.
