Native American villages and towns in Alabama that start with the letter E, along with a brief description.

A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Mentioned as a Lower Creek town formerly on lower Chattahooche r., Henry co., Ala., 2 m. above Wikaiva, near the junction of Omussee cr., with 20 inhabit ants in 1820. It seems to be equally probable that the settlement, which is not mentioned by early writers, composed of Yamasi, from whom it derived its name.
