On May 23, 1836, the New Ochota Treaty was ratified and the land involved, once part of the great Cherokee Nation, was ceded to the United States. The removal of the Indians began in 1837 but the Trail of Tears was not completed until 1838. But, even before the treaty, many white settlers had been occupying the area for years. Anyone EXCEPT a member of the Cherokee Nation could file a claim for 160 acres within the first two months at the rate of $7.50 @ acre.

This volume contains the records of those filing claims in the Southeast Tennessee area in what is now Bradley, Hamilton, McMinn, Marion, Monroe, and Polk County, Tennessee. Information includes:
