1832 Creek Census – High Log 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 High Log. 1832 Creek Census - High Log Town Town Number Head Males Females Slaves Total Remarks High Log 1 Mic co Choo ley (or Euchee King) 4 2 0 6 High Log 2 Sarlt he nay 1 3 0 4 High Log 3 Unk har 3 2 0 5 High Log 4 Tow lay 1 1 0 2 High Log 5 Pil lar 3 4 0 7 High Log 6 Ko y ka 2 1 0 3 High Log 7 Se ko ho we nay 2 1 0 3 High Log 8 Chaw kin ney 3 2 0 10 High Log 9 Shar Quar har 2 1 0 3 High Log 10 Kow unk e thlan nay 3 1 0 4 High Log 11 Ow wing kay 3 2...
