The claimant in this case states (on oath) she lived on Cedar Creek & came to this country in Stephen Foreman’s Detachment & now lives on Spring Creek. She states she was forced from her home by the soldiers, and left all the property charged in this account at her place, and never had a chance to return, or have any thing done to remove any part of it. The three head of cattle charged in the account for her daughter is the property of one that still lives with her. The House in the account she states was not valued when the other part of her place was.
