I am from Woodson County. I am a personal friend of Thomas
Yahola and John Proctor. I have in my possession a list of those Creeks that made the trip to Oklahoma Territory in the 1830s' Opothle Yahola died in our County. He and his princis daughter are burried in an unmarked grave in our county. I am interested in the history of this great leader. My great great grandfather commanded the Neosho Valley Home Guard during the Civil War. The Creek Indians were part of the 1st and 2nd all Indian Home Guard of Kansas
They were part of my grandfathers command.

Bill: Is this a list of the people who left Tallassee, Alabama with Opothleyoholo in 1834 on the Trail of Tears? If so I would really appreaciate it if you would e-mail me a copy. The Tukabahchie council tree stood only afew miles from where I live and I have always been fascinated with the Indian history of Tallassee, even wrote an article about it for a local magazine about a year ago. I have always been told that my great great great grandmother was Creek but I have been unable to prove it, all I have is her name "Mary" who first married (find no record) a ? Singleton and then ? Williamson in Alabama. Thanks, Myra

This may be of interest to you. My great grandfather, Lewis Hamilton McDermott (non-Indian) was charged with larceny in 1895. He stole two steer from Fusetchie Yohalah (?) and sold them for $20. Family history says he stole the steer to feed a poor family. The original court document said he stole the steer for the money! My father recalls a story where Fusetchie had a brother named "Artussi" - anyway. Let me know if this rings a bell!

I read an old message of yours where you wrote that you had a list of thefirst group of Creeks to settle in Oklahoma. I was wondering if you have converted this list to a text form that you could share with me, or tell me what archive I could find it in?

#2. I have also been researching the community that settled around the area of Sand Springs east of Tulsa. There are a number of citings that list a Lewis Perryman as having settled there. I am not sure if this is the son of Benjamin (and father of Legus), of Creek Freedman Lewis Perryman?

#3. The town of Adams is listed by many sources as having been settled by a Lt. Thomas Adams (Confederate). This would have been around the same time as Lewis Perryman settled there. Thomas Adams must have other names that he was listed under but I have not been able to link his name to the area and I was wondering if you had any ideas?

If this message reaches you thanks in advance for reading and please let me know if you have any information that would help me in my work.
Very Best Wishes,
Andrea

Hi, Andrea -
#1) accessgenealogy. com (a free-of-charge site) has the Creek Nation's Old Settlers Roll. This roster lists only the people who were still alive in 1851, as they were due a payment, so it's not a list of everyone who made the trip from the SE USA to Indian Territory. The "Old Settlers" were the people who came before the majority of the Creek Nation..these came abt 1828; the remainder came in the 1830s. Most of these early arrivals were associated with / supportive of the McIntosh faction. (This list did not include the slave population who also made the trip with their slaveholders.)
#2) Sand Springs was / is west of Tulsa, now in Osage Co. & Tulsa Co, OK, so you might be looking in the wrong area?
#3 - Adams - there were three communities/ post offices in IT and OT named Adams in the following counties: Texas, Beaver, & Bryan Counties.
**Lastly, you might not know this but the 1860 census of Arkansas included the NON-Native Americans in Indian Territory. It lists all the white people who were married to NAs, who were working / living in IT, who were intruders. etc. It also lists African-Americans and not just those who were slaves but also those who were married to whites or Native Americans, were working in IT, etc. (Many of the slaves were just listed by one name as they did not have last names at that time.) To find them: ancestry / 1860 census: put: Arkansas under "Lived In" and mark Exact / then under "Keyword" put: Creek Nation, Indian Lands. There are 614 entries.
