David Muskrat
1848 - Jul 9, 1907

The Standard-Sentinel
(Stilwell, OK)
11 Jul 1907

Hon. David Muskrat, who lives a short ways south of Evansville, died Tuesday night at 11 o'clock of typhoid malarial fever.

He was buried yesterday afternoon near his beautiful home in the family cemetery.

He was one of the greatest and most influential fullbloods in the Cherokee Nation and as leader of the Keetoowah society no person has weilded the influence he has. Among his people he has held many offices, as senator, councilor, solicitor, and has represented his people in Washington quite a number of times, and to the full blood society has was always true. he was against the allotment and partition of the country, but when he saw it was inevitable he urged his people to accept the results. In politics he has always been a National.

He had his faults as other men and some things have been charged against him, but that he was a great leader, with much executive ability no one can deny. Now, that his stately steps will be heard no more and his matchless eloquence will no longer sway his people, let's bury and forget his shortcomings and only remember his virtues and the good he did, which he leaves as a legacy to his family and his people.
