1832 Creek Census – Coosawda 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 Coosawda. 1832 Creek Census - Coosawda Town Town Number Head Males Females Slaves Total Remarks Coosawda 1 Micco Hatka 3 2 0 5 Coosawda 2 Coch char Har go 1 1 0 2 Coosawda 3 No ko sic kar 1 1 0 2 Coosawda 4 Co lo che E marth lar 1 1 0 2 Coosawda 5 Ne har Fix i co 2 3 0 5 Coosawda 6 Tommy Yo ho lo 2 1 0 3 Coosawda 7 Ech hos Har go 3 3 0 6 Coosawda 8 Archi Yo ho lo 2 2 0 4 Coosawda 9 Emarthlo che 1 1 0 2 Coosawda 10 Al bud dar Har go 1 1 0 2 Coosawda 11 Toat kar to che 1 1 0 2 Coosawda 12 Ne har Har...
