Family legend which was given to Woody Dendy of Bernice, LA, has an
interesting tale of Thomas Pulaska Dendy. Woody was given this from someone
else in the family, but we regret we do not know the author.

Thomas Pulaska Dendy was a land owner near what is (as of 1988)
known as La ran.
We find he loved his family dearly though circumstances seem

He left for the Civil War - fighting wiht the Mississippi Volunteers.

When he left his wife was very ill and expecting their sixth child.
Word came to him how ill she was and he wanted to return home to be with
her. However this could no be for the battle was raging at Vicksburg. only
the wounded and very ill could be excused from battle.

Thomas Pulaska arranged to shoot his thumb and forefinger off his
left hand thus enabling him to return to his wife, only too late.

Her brother, Elder Ansel Kitchens, had taken the children into his
home and Thomas' beloved wife, Pamelia, had died.

Distraught over the death and behavior that Ansel Kitchen detested
- resulted in Thomas Pulaska leaving this area and his children.

He ventured into Okla. territory which included Arkansas (a
portion), at that time. There he met and married a half Cherokee girl. This
further divided his family. (It is my sincere belief he loved them but gave
them up completely for thier good.)

Thomas Pulaska Dendy first wife was Parmelia E. Kitchens

His second wife was a half Cherokee girl.
