Was anything recorded on the tribal enrollment? Church and school records may have it too. I found out some years ago that when my great-aunt went to Carlisle, they took the time to record her real name/aka indian name. Also check with your tribe's historian.

At ancestry.com on some of the early reservation censuses from this reservation, they listed their Indian name AND their "given" name.

Names were not given in order to recieve land

They merely recorded what name they were told by the person themselves that matched what they gave when they were recorded with the tribe.

The 1900 census in Oklahoma showed for the 1st time Indians on what is called the Indian Schedule, it lists the english name or what they were known by and at the bottom of the sheet it will list their Indian name if they had one...

A quick look up I found a Thomas Jefferson born 1880 Indian Territory Creek Nation Township 14 he was living with his Grandparents Manuel and Jane Jefferson in 1900 he was age 20. He is the only Thomas I could find I did find him again livin in the same location in 1910,1920,1930 and 1940. He is not listed on the Indian Schedule
