In the coming days/weeks, I’ll will be posting information that hopefully will aid researchers with vexing questions about the turbulent Cherokee history during the first third of the 19th century.

I will include information about the Old Settlers who voluntarily removed out west; the Texas Cherokees; the Treaty Party faction and the John Ross faction.

References will be gleaned from resources found at the National Archives, Oklahoma Historical Society Archives, the Indian Papers of Texas and other key reference materials.

It is hoped that this will guide the researcher in the right direction.
