A transcription of Native Americans residing in Kemper County, Mississippi in 1916, taken by John T. Reeves, Special Supervisor, Indian Service.

I found 450 Indians in Neshoba County, classified as follows: One hundred and eighty-three heads of families and single persons over 20 years of age; 155 males and 99 females form 5 to 20 years, inclusive, and 13 minors under 5 years. I am satisfied that there are more adults and children under 5 years of age in this county, but feel reasonably sure that I did obtain the names of all the children of school age.
