Susan ‘Susette’ Crawfish

The daughter of Martin Luther and Mihšiiminaapowa, Susan was the half-sister of Mary Shapp (Pankihšinohkwa) and John Shapp (Awansaapia).  She married Thomas Crawfish and had ten children, but only four were living in 1910: Luella Isadore (Mihšiiminaapowa), Mary, Minnie, and Lucy.  Isadore was the only child living at the time allotments were made.  Thomas Crawfish’s family was Quapaw, and many of his and Susan’s descendants are citizens of the Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma.
