1832 Creek Census – Wewoakkar 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 Wewoakkar. 1832 Creek Census - Wewoakkar Town Town Number Head Males Females Slaves Total Remarks Wewoakkar 1 Ufawla 1 1 0 2 Wewoakkar 2 Tuske ga 1 1 0 2 Wewoakkar 3 Tuskenehaw 1 1 0 2 Wewoakkar 4 Peter 1 3 0 4 Wewoakkar 5 Billy 3 2 0 5 Wewoakkar 6 Contal E marth lar 3 1 0 4 Wewoakkar 7 Thlath Thlo Har jo 2 1 0 3 Wewoakkar 8 Chu was ti Har jo 2 2 0 4 Wewoakkar 9 In ne haw 2 1 0 3 Wewoakkar 10 Oc ti arche Fix i co 1 1 0 2 Wewoakkar 11 Oc ti arche Micco 1 2 0 3 Wewoakkar 12 He nar hin ne haw 1 3 0 4 Wewoakkar 13 E note nugga 1...
