The Negro Abraham

The date of Abrahamís death is unknown to me, but presumably it took place not long after 1870.

According to Mr. Payne, he is buried at Brunertown, west of the Little River settlement, near Hazel. Mr. Payne has seen a stone shaped into a marker, with his name on it,
over the grave, but cannot recall whether or not it bears a date. Some young Oklahoma historian could profitably spend a few days in the vicinity of Wewoka, Sasakwa,
Noble Town, Little River, and Brunertown, visiting the grave and searching for further traditional information on the later life of this remarkable personality.
