1832 Creek Census – Chehawah 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 Chehawah. 1832 Creek Census - Chehawah Town TownNumberHeadMalesFemalesSlavesTotalRemarks Chehawah 1 John O pon nee 3 1 19 23 Chehawah 2 No cose Yo ho lo 2 4 0 6 Chehawah 3 Har pi uk Har jo 2 1 0 3 Chehawah 4 Ne har Thlock o 3 1 0 4 Chehawah 5 Kar pic char 3 2 0 5 Chehawah 6 Le tif Har jo 2 1 0 3 Chehawah 7 Ing koo tar 1 1 0 2 Chehawah 8 Oke e Tus tun nuck ee (alias Washington) 3 3 0 6 Chehawah 9 Ko cho ko nar Har jo 4 7 7 18 Chehawah 10 Kot char Har coo che 2 3 0 5 Chehawah 11 Kese Hatch Yo ho lo 2 4 0 6 Chehawah 12 Thlar hi...
