|There has been much confusion
that Alfred Wilson is a brother to John Wilson and this Alfred Wilson family
is related to Cleo Wilson Sipes and Everett Wilson families and extended
kinships. This is not the case and there is no relationship whatsoever.
Presented here are two letters to show from the Sipes Cheyenne extended
kinship collection and the elders of the Wilson and Standing Bird families
have stated this in oral family histories also. (See the Wilson and
Medicine Water families on the Carlisle Indian School site).

Respectively transmitted herewith are the following described papers:
(A) Deed Noncompetent Indian Lands executed by Doll Woman and her husband, Alfred Wilson, coveying to Alfred White Crow for a consideration of $1600, part of Doll Womans allotment #605A, located in sections etc., etc. While this tract would provide him (Alfred White Crow) with a nice home without additional land, he would have no way in which he could earn a living, and therefore he and his uncle, Alfred Wilson , made this agreement with Doll Woman, Alfreds wife, that Alfred White Crow would purchase the land.

(Doll Woman, Alfred Wilson, Alfred White Crow or Prudie Two Crows families or extended kinships do not have any direct ties or relationship to the Cleo Wilson Sipes or Everett Wilson families.--- John Sipes, August 1, 2005)
