    Notes 
    • Sophia Folsom Pitchlynn born in 1773. Her Indian Name was "Lk-lo-ha-wah" (loved but lost). Sophia was the daughter of Ebenezer Folsom and his Choctaw wife, Natika. Sophia married in 1804 to Major John Pitchlynn of Scottish decent, who was reared by the Choctaws after the death of his father, Isaac Pitchlynn. John was an interpreter for the Choctaw Nation, appointed by President George Washington. He served as interpreter for all the treaties between the Choctaw Nation and the United States.
      Sophia bore ten children to John Pitchlynn. They were:
      (1) Peter Perkins, (2) Silas, (3) Thomas Jefferson, (4) Charles, (5) Rhoda, (6) Elizabeth,
      (7) Mary, (8) Kezzia, (9) Eliza Ann Cornelia, and (10) Kate Pitchlynn.
      Sophia had three step-children:
      (1) John Pitchlynn Jr., (2) Joseph Pitchlynn, and (3) James Pitchlynn. These children were from Major John Pitchlynn's first marriage.
      Major John Pitchlynn died in 1835 before the family moved to Indian Territory. After John's death, Sophia decided to move to Indian Territory. She settled on a plantation in the Little River area in what is now the far southeastern part of Oklahoma. Sophia managed her plantation efficiently and was known to have been very just in all things. She came under the influence of the noted missionary Cyrus Byington and was a devoted Christian. Even though she could speak English, she refused to do so, speaking only Choctaw and for the most part served only Choctaw food.
      Sophia lived to see her son, Peter P. Pitchlynn rise to positions of prominence in the Choctaw Nation. Sophia brought many plants and flowers with her from Mississippi. The family has kept her yellow roses growing for more than 150 years. Sophia died in 1871 at the age of 98 and is buried at the historic Garland family cemetery near present day Tom in Southeastern McCurtain County, Oklahoma and has a historical marker on the site.
