If you have read the story of Mazeppa and Laura Turner, your remember that Mazeppa first settled in Stringtown, I.T. Here, they took the orphan Tom Hayes into their home. Tom was a year younger than Zep’s first child Lizzie. The very young Choctaw orphan was made a part of the family and moved with the Turners to their new home in the Arbuckle Mountains in the Chickasaw Nation.
