Campbells Abstract of Creek Indian Census Cards Index
In 1915 J.B. Campbell constructed for the first time a complete book index and listing from the Creek Dawes Roll. The abstract contained the Creek member's roll number, name, age, sex, blood degree, name of persons in the household, and residential address. Available here is the index only of this book which shows the complete name and their roll number, which aids in grouping families. Contains a key to the index and instructions for remote access to the original book. The Creek Dawes Roll is important because many Americans who think they are of Cherokee descent are actually of Creek Federation descent.
Campbells Abstract of SEMINOLE Indian Census Cards
This is the book and index, constructed by J.B. Campbell as well, based on the Seminole Dawes Roll. It contains the persons name, roll number, census card number, address, age, sex, relation, name of father, name of mother, and more! Additionally, contains a Seminole Freedman section, which should be of particular interest to African American genealogists.
Three years Among the Comanche
While not specifically useful for genealogy research, this book contains perhaps the most accurate and telling picture of Comanche life in the 1840's. Nelson Lee was a Texas Ranger who was captured by the Comanches and spent three years in captivity, prior to escape. Lee was eventually adopted into the tribe before his escape, and his personal narrative of Comache customs, waring, marriage and death, medicine, and particularly the plight of captive White women and children weave a fascinating cultural and historical narrative. In fact, part of the impetus for the publication of the book was the editor's concern over the large number of White women and children the Comanche held captive as American's moved west.
Cherokee Land Lottery, Fortunate Drawers
This 1838 book contains the names of 742 White Revolutionary war pensioners, widows, or orphans who received through lottery, ceded Cherokee lands in Georgia. Contains name, location, county, district, section, and lot number. Fully cross-indexed.
