The materials from which these records are taken are found in a private collection of papers and are not found anywhere in the Federal records. They contain the records of distribution of goods to the Creek just prior to being moved west. By 1836, most of the Creek had already moved west of the Mississippi except for a small band represented by this record book. These Creek were gathered into Camp Clanewaugh to wait for their time to move west. Like many of the census of the day, only the head of the house is given, but an accounting of the number of females and children are given along with the rations of bacon, corn and corn meal.

We have presented these records in a photocopy of the original due to the nature of the names and possible mis-spelling by a transcription. As you study these records, please take your time and look at every possibility since the original writer wrote the name as they thought they heard it and we are reading what we think they wrote.

The index that follows is as it is given in the material. Many of the names appear to be just given names and the Creek names are spelled out as given.
