Description:
Edmund McKinney, missionary in charge of Spencer Academy, describes an ongoing conflict over his hiring of a “free man of color,” Oliver Ingles. McKinney complained that Ingles “had made no preparations to go, and was using as he had been for sometime, very threatening language towards me.” The situation dragged on for several months, until Ingles finally relented and left Spencer Academy, but only after “he and his wife received full compensation.”

Description:
Edmund McKinney, missionary in charge of Spencer Academy, describes a conflict over his hiring of a “free man of color,” Oliver Ingles, and his family from Fort Smith, Arkansas, “at very high wages.” According to McKinney, as soon as Choctaw leader Peter Pitchlynn found out about the hiring, he demanded that the man be dismissed from Spencer Academy based on a law in the Choctaw Constitution that forbid free people from residing in the Nation. If Ingles refused to leave, he and his family would be arrested by the light-horsemen force (equivalent to the police in the Choctaw Nation) and sold into enslavement for a year.
