This is the second census of The Catawba Indians giving the names
of the people follows.

B.B. Massey's report to the governor of South Carolina states he knew of
106 Catawbas or maybe 110.  5 Catawbas had gone to Charleston, S.C. in 1851. 
One of them General James Kegg had died in Charleston in 1852 at the age of 
69.  The oldest member of the Tribe.  Of the others (Lewis Stephens, 
Jim Morrison, a child and Polly Stephens), most or all still lived in 
Charleston in 1853, but had not been heard of since.

Of the other 106, Mr. Massey counted 
	15 in Arkansas, (Who had moved out there in 1851, never to return), 
	 7 in North Carolina, and 
	84 in South Carolina, 

The 91 in North and South Carolina amounting to 15 men, 29 women and 47 
children.  It seems reasonable that of these 91 Catawbas in North and 
South Carolina in 1854 only five  
(Allen Harris, Jesse Harris, Jimmy Harris, Billy George, and Robert Marsh) 
were fathers and husbands with a wife and children at home; 
of the 47 children only 10 had a father in the house.  Of these 91 
Catawbas a majority (55) had the surnames of George, Harris or Brown -- 
22 men named George, 20 named Harris, 13 named Brown, 11 named Marsh 
(descendants [in the male line] of Pamunkey Indian men from the
Pamunkey reservation in Virginia) 8 named Canty, 4 each named White, 
Sanders or Tims, 2 each named Joe or Ayers and one man named Scott.  
The census itself follows; the; ages come from the 1849 count.
