1832 Creek Census – Chehaw Town

By a treaty of March 24, 1832, the Creek Indians ceded to the United States all of their land east of the Mississippi River. Heads of families were entitled to tracts of land, which, if possible, were to include their improvements. In 1833 Benjamin S. Parsons and Thomas J. Abbott prepared a census of Creek Indian heads of families, which gave their names and the number of males, females, and slaves in each family. The entries were arranged by town and numbered; these numbers were used for identification in later records. This is the census for the town of Chehaw. 1832 Creek Census - Chehaw Town Town Number Head Males Females Slaves Total Remarks Chehaw 1 Par hos Fix i co 5 1 0 6 Chehaw 2 No kos Har go 3 2 0 5 Chehaw 3 Spoak Oak Har go 2 3 0 5 Chehaw 4 Nos cop Fix i co 5 1 0 6 Chehaw 5 Cho gart tie Yo ho lo 2 1 0 3 Chehaw 6 Nolth bob Emarthloche 2 4 0 6 Chehaw 7 Charley 4 2 0 6 Chehaw 9 Nus cop Har go 4 4 0 8 Chehaw 10 Thlath lo Yo ho lo 1 1 0 2 Chehaw 11 Clis Sar hoie 1 1 0 2 Chehaw 12 Tus coner Har go 4 5 0 9 Chehaw 13 Con nath lar...
