1837 Muster Roll


Chickasaws Preparing to go West

This census is to aid researchers in their quest of time frames.  I have found, my  great great grandmother gave birth to all of her children in Mississippi.  The last one born was Susan Roberts Whitaker born 1852, according to the Dawes Commission and the 1920 Carter County, Oklahoma Census.  It is my belief that my great great great grandparent's never came across "The Trail of Tears", but lived and died  on Indian lands east of the Mississippi.  Their children are all enrolled by the Dawes Commission in the Chickasaw and/or Choctaw Nations therefore they traveled the trail.  Since their Slave owner's name is not on this list, I once again speculate that they ( the Children) did not come until after 1852.  Eli Roberts' Indian Pioneer Interview also assist in  this finding.
