Though Lizzie's allotment card states that her mother was also named Lizzie Davis, she was listed as a ward or orphan from very early on in her life. In 1890, Milton Drake was serving as her guardian, and she was also often as- sociated with the Shapp family. Mary Shapp may have also served as a guard- ian. Around 1893, she married a man named John Thompson. She had two sons, Joseph Thompson and Willie Buffalo Thompson. However, both died as children. She later married an Ottawa Indian, Peter McCoontz and had four more sons: John, James, Joseph, and Francis. None of her children were born before allotments were made.
