Explorers into Alabama, and Further West #georgiapioneerscom #gagenealogy

Explorers into Alabama, and Further West

Creeks and Cherokees in GeorgiaFinding the persons who passed through Georgia before the removal of the Indians is often difficult. For one, they had to acquire approval from the Georgia Governor. For this reason, the following book is suggested: Passports Issued by Governors of Georgia 1785 to 1820 by Mrs. Mary G. Bryan. Next, you need to examine the various Indian trails (maps on line) to get a better focus on the situation. Most of these people were explorers, traders and hunters. Some of them married squaws. Such marriages were not recorded in public county records, and the odds of finding this information is remote. The records of The Creek Agent near Macon, (1754-1816) Benjamin Hawkins (1754-1816) should be examined for possible names. Typically, all of the Indian Rolls should be examined, especially the Dawes Rolls because that is when some 32,000 applicant claimed lineage to the Creeks and Cherokees. It is a long, drawn-out process.
