Who were the white families living among the Cherokees before the “Trail of Tears”?

This book is not a genealogy of Cherokee families.

The book contains censuses, leases of Indian lands, Oaths of Allegiance, school rolls, militia musters, letters, and newspaper accounts of white families that lived within the Cherokee nation between 1827 and 1838.

The Cherokee Nation occupied all of present Georgia Counties of Bartow (formerly Cass), Catoosa, Chatooga, Cherokee, Cobb, Dade, Dawson, Fannin, Floyd, Forsyth, Gilmer, Gordon, Lumpkin, Murray, Paulding, Pickens, Polk, Towns, Union, Walker, White & Whitfield.

Complete with the laws of the time,  illustrations and maps of the area.

A particular favorite is the map that reflects how the 1830 census was enumerated. It reflects how the Cherokee Nation was divided for the census and which counties were designated to include the census records for those  divided areas.

This valuable resource is available as a used book but may cost as much as $100-145.00 to purchase. A Kindle eBook bargain for $6.95!
