This map is also hosted on the site which has a rather lenghty biography about Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Fulton (Hester) — her husband’s father/husband was Choctaw — owned a Mercantile business in Boggy Depot, Muscogee County, Oklahoma.

Her husband was George Benjamin Hester — his father, Thomas Hester is my direct maternal ancestor. This appears to be the source of my grandmother’s first name, HESTER.
