In 1913, Thorpe married Iva Miller , whom he had met at Carlisle. They had four children: Jim Jr. (who died at age 2), Gale, Charlotte and Grace. Thorpe was a chronic alcoholic in his later years. Miller filed for divorce from Thorpe in 1925, claiming desertion.. In 1926, Thorpe married Freeda V. K…irkpatrick , who was born September 19, 1905, and died March 2, 2007, in Yakima, Washington. She was working for the manager of the baseball team on which he was playing at the time. They had four sons: Carl, William, Richard and John. William, Richard and John "Jack" survived their mother, who had divorced their father in 1941 after 15 years of marriage. After the end of his athletic career, Thorpe struggled to support his family. He found it difficult to work outside sports and never kept a job for an extended period of time. During the Great Depression in particular, Thorpe held various jobs, among others as an extra in several movies, usually playing an Indian chief in Westerns. But he also worked as a construction worker, a bouncer, a security guard, and a ditch digger, and he briefly joined the United States Merchant Marine in 1945. . By the 1950s, Thorpe had no money left, and when he was hospitalized for lip cancer in 1950, he was admitted as a charity case. At a press conference announcing the procedure, Thorpe's wife wept and pleaded for help, saying: "we're broke.... Jim has nothing but his name and his memories. He has spent money on his own people and has given it away. He has often been exploited." In early 1953, Thorpe suffered his third heart attack while eating dinner with his third wife, Patricia Askew, in his trailer home in Lomita, California. Artificial respiration briefly revived him, and he was able to speak to those around him but lost consciousness shortly afterward and died on March 28. (MORE)

Jim Thorpe played professional baseball in 1909 and 1910. Although the Olympic rules of 1912 didn't forbade anyone athlete who played professionally, the Amateur Athletic Union, in 1913, retro-actively stripped Thrope of his medals.. Thorpe wrote a letter asking to be excused: "I hope I will be par…tly excused by the fact that I was simply an Indian schoolboy and did not know all about such things. In fact, I did not know that I was doing wrong, because I was doing what I knew several other college men had done, except that they did not use their own names.". The 1912 rules also states if anyone objected to the winner's medals, a complaint must be made within 30 days after the medals are awarded; the complaint was made in 1913-- six months after the games. In 1982, after the support of U.S. Congress, Jim Thorpe's Olympic medals were re-instated to him with two of Thorpe's children receiving commemorative medals. The original two medals awarded to Jim Thrope were stolen from a museum..

Yes Native Americans were allowed to play before Jim Thorpe. Typically the racial barrier in sports was specifically directed towards African Americans and generally players from Latin, Native American or other ethnic groups were allowed to play. One such example is Jimmy Claxton who was one of the… first to brake the professional baseball color barrier when he played two games for the Oakland Oaks. Claxton was allowed to play because it was believed he was Native American from a Oklahoma tribe; However within a week, a friend of Claxton revealed that he had both Negro and Native American ancestors, and Claxton was promptly fired.

Definitely not. Zebrec appears to be the name of a modern computer programme used by comcast.net and imgs is a lazy way of writing the word images.
The chief's name was definitely not Seattle - his name was really more like Si'alh, Seallh or Sealth (with a complex sound at the end not found in English) but white Americans could not be bothered to say it properly and settled for an approximation. He was (unusually) a chief of two differ…ent tribes: Duwamish and Suquamish. He is credited with making a speech about ecological matters and native American land rights, but this claim may be pure fantasy. The speech he gave in 1854 was entirely in the Lushootseed dialect, translated into Chinook jargon (a mixed dialect used in trade on the west coast). It may then have been translated into English but it was not properly published until 1891, then added to and altered in another version of 1929, then another version in 1931. The original speech is likely to have been misunderstood, mistranslated and embellished or fabricated over time, so what the chief actually said is definitely not known for certain. Despite all this, chief Si'alh was given the twisted compliment of having a city named after him (almost...) in Washington State. (MORE)
Some are: Joseph Brant or Thayendandgea', Jay Silverheels who played Tonto in the Lone Ranger, and Kateri Tekakwithathe first Mohawk nun.
The Mandan tribe is probably one of the least well-known of all North American groups, despite being "famous" for a false claim made about them in the 19th century. They were badly reduced in numbers by smallpox and other diseases, as well inter-tribal warfare; they only survived by combining with t…wo other neighbouring tribes (the Hidatsa and Arikara). Among notable leaders of the Mandan were chiefs Posecopsahe (Black Cat), Cargarnomokshe (Raven Man), Shehekshote (White Coyote), Kagohame (Little Raven), Tatuckcopinreha (White Buffalo Robe), Crow Chief, Mahto Tope (Four Bears), Miniakihamato (Bear On the Water), Sheohmantho (Red Buffalo Cow), Charging Eagle, Peditska Amakish (Sitting Crow). Of these, Four Bears was painted by the artists George Catlin and Karl Bodmer - making him perhaps the most widely known of all Mandan chiefs. The false claim about the Mandan tribe is that they were "Welsh" and descended from a mythical Welsh prince named Madoc, who supposedly discovered the Americas by accident in the 12th century and returned to Wales to collect a large number of followers. These then set out for the area that later became Mobile Bay and gradually moved northwards, finally establishing a colony that became the Mandan tribe. This is all nonsense, taking no account of the absence of any ocean-going ships in Wales at the time - and there is no trace of any Welsh language among the Mandans (despite many claims made by unqualified people in the 1800s). As a tribe, the Mandan people are perhaps most famous for not being Welsh . . . (MORE)
