Amanda Predilla Tucker Coker gravestone, McAlester, Oklahoma

Born in Georgia(?), a Glenn-Tucker (of the long Indian Territory lawsuit), part Choctaw and part Cherokee, she married Seborn Coker, of the Marion County, Arkansas Cokers, the first whites in that part of the country (see SCHOOLCRAFT's book) who took Cherokee wives, sometimes too many to please the male Cherokees (see Turnbo's stories, particularly the one about how Poor Joe's Hill got its name). How did she come to have such a fine gravestone?
