Jacob Humbel Phillips

Jacob Humbel "J.J." Phillips managed one of the first trading posts on the Osage Indian Nation, at or near Hominy, Ok.  He left Tennessee around 1886 to go west to the Osage Indian Territory.  He remained there until maybe 1888 or late 1889.

He was given the Indian name of  "E-ha=shoot-se" meaning Red Beard. His oldest son, my Grandfather, was called "E-ha_shoo-se-shimmy-shinker" meaning Red Beard's little son.  

An Indian woman, made for my grandfather a pair of blue wool leggins like those worn by the Indians, an uncle of mine still had them in his possession when my Grandfather passed away in 1957.

I would like to very much exchange information about his great grandfather, Phillips and with any one who has any knowledge of this Trading Post in Hominy.
