    Notes 
    • The Dawes Enrollment packet of George Mutz indicated that is took some time for him to be enrolled as a citizen by intermarriage. The fact that he and Ida married first under a U.S. marriage license, and married again some four years later under a tribal license appeared to be one factor. Additionally, it appeared that the Choctaw and Chickasaw attornies originally protested the enrollment on the grounds that they suspected Ida was actually a full sister of George W. Blevins, Annie B. Roberts, John Orndorf and Mattie Hybarger, and first requested that a full examination be made of the records to determine who the parents of Ida Hardwick Mutz were. The chairman of the enrollment commision stated that upon examination, it was determined that Ida was indeed the daughter of Dave Hardwick, now deceased, who was a citizen by blood and resident of Pickens County, and Creecy Merriman, who was presently age 42 and a citizen by blood.

      "Pioneers of Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory Volume II"; compiled and edited by Nova A. Lemons, contains a sketch of the Hardwick Family submitted by Jon Eastman Hardwick of Baird, Texas (now deceased). He stated that Ida was born in April 1877 and died in 1915.  J. W. Honeysuckle, in a article below relating to the death of Ida Mutz and her mother, Crecy Harney Hardwick Merriman, stated that Ida had been first married to his brother, a Honeysuckle, prior to her marriage to George Mutz.

      TWO WOMEN  SLAIN   IN FAMILY FEUD

      Marshall County Farmer's Home Scene of Double Tragedy

      MADILL, Okla., April 22 - (Special)-

      Mrs. Creacy Merriman, aged 60, and Mrs G. M. Mutz, 35 years of age, were shot and killed Thursday morning by J. W. Honeysuckle, 27, at the latter's home, about three miles northeast of  Kingston.

      Honeysuckle fired two pistol shots into the body of each woman. Immediately after the second shot was fired into the body of Mrs. Merriman, she ran out of the house to the front porch where she fell dead. After Mrs. Mutz had been shot the second time she ran out of the room, and sat down by the side of the house. Mrs. Honeysuckle took the wounded woman back into the house
      and placed her in bed, where she died fifteen minutes later. Honeysuckle came to  Madill   and surrendered three hours later. He is now in the county jail here.

      According to  Honeysuckle   the double killing was the culmination of a quarrel over the guardianship of his three step-children. Honeysuckle had been married just one week when the killing occurred.

      According to Honeysuckle's statement, Mrs  Merriman was the grandmother of his step-children, and Mrs. Mutz was his sister-in-law, her first husband having been his brother. At the time of the killing, Mrs N. F. Benson [Jennie Hardwick], a daughter of Mrs  Merriman, and Mrs  Honeysuckle, wife of the slayer, were the only other persons in the home. Honeysuckle says that there had been previous domestic trouble in the family.

      According to his statement, Mrs. Merriman and Mrs. Mutz drove up to his house during the rain about 9 o'clock Thursday morning. He says that he went to the door and invited the women to tie their team, and to come into the house, while it was raining. The women accepted the invitation, he says, and as they were entering the door one of the women made a remark which caused Mrs.  Honeysuckle to object to their presence in the  Honeysuckle home. The women entered the house, over the protest of Mrs. Honeysuckle, and attacked Mrs. Honeysuckle, knocking her down, says
      Honeysuckle, who alleges that while his wife was on the floor she was kicked by Mrs. Mutz. He says that he pulled the women from his wife and that they assualted him, pushing him back of a stove and against the wall.

      "Mrs  Merriman   picked up a butcher knife and started toward me," says  Honeysuckle  . "I warned her away several times and kept repeating, 'Don't make me hurt you.' The women kept crowding in on me. I drew a pistol and fired twice, one shot striking Mrs  Merriman, the other hitting Mrs  Mutz. The women grappled me, and while we were struggling I fired twice at Mrs  Merriman, one of the bullets striking Mrs.Merriman, the other going wild and striking Mrs  Mutz," says Honeysuckle. Mrs. Honeysuckle's three children, over whom the trouble occurred, are of Indian extraction by her former husband, Brit  Hardwick, a son of Mrs  Merriman.

      Mrs  Merriman is a widow.

      Searching for Descendants of John David HARDWICK and Lucretia (Crecy) HARNEY

      HARDWICK, John David was born 1852 in Mississippi, Marshall County, and died 23 October 1889 in Paris, Texas, Lamar County. He married Lucretia HARNEY 30 November 1876 in Pickens County, Indian Territory, daughter of Will HARNEY and MAULSIE UNKNOWN. She was born March 1860 in Panola County, Indian Territory, and died 22 April 1915 in Kingston, Marshall County, Oklahoma.

      Children of JOHN HARDWICK and LUCRETIA HARNEY are:

      HARDWICK, Ida, b. April 1877; d. 22 April 1915, Kingston, Marshall County, Oklahoma.

      HARDWICK, Brit, b. 04 May 1880, Pickens County, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory; d. 04 March 1911, Kingston, Marshall County, Oklahoma.

      HARDWICK, Eastman, b. 15 September 1883; d. 23 December 1950, Baird, Callahan County, Texas.

      HARDWICK, Janie, b. 10 July 1887; d. 13 March 1960, Ardmore, Carter County, Oklahoma.


      "Pioneers of Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory Volume II"; compiled and edited by Nova A. Lemons, contains a sketch of the Hardwick Family submitted by Jon Eastman Hardwick of Baird, Texas (now deceased) also showed that Dave and Crecy were the parents of an Ada Hardwick, born 1888 and died March 27, 1964 in Ardmore. He showed that she was married first to Mr. Russell and had a son, Charles. She married second to Dawes Bixby Cummings.
