1916 Indian Census of Scott County, Mississippi

Show some words

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

Scott County maintains no Indian school at this time. It did have one up to four or five years ago, but the building burned and was never replaced. There is quite an Indian settlement in the north eastern part of this county, which is locally known as “Indiantown,” some 50 Indians living in that vicinity. I was given to understand that a good many of the Indians of this locality had migrated to adjacent counties. I was able to locate only 55, classified as follows: Heads of families and single persons over 20 years of age, 31: from 5 to 20, inclusive, males 11, females 8; under 5 years of age, 5.
