James R. Carselowey wrote several articles for the Indian Pioneer Papers. The above referenced article written in 1938 focuses on stories, traditions learned for those who lived among the Shawnee after they made their move out of Kansas from 1868-1871.

"Some of the leaders, including three ex-chiefs of the Shawnee Tribe, together with a small band of others came down to the territory as early as 1868, selected their land and went back for a time. The three chiefs: Charles Rogers, Johnson Blackfeather, Cyrus Cornatzer."
