1882 Creek (Muskogee) Nation Census

(Last updated Jan. 14, 2003.)

This is transcription of a Creek (Muskogee) Nation census taken in April 1882 and arranged by tribal town and thereunder by family groups.   Listed are the person's names, ages, and the name or initials of the person probably involved with paying the family a stipend, usually a town chief.  Persons are usually listed in the same tribal town as their mother because town and clan affiliations follow the maternal line.

A typed and faded transcription of the 1882 Creek (Muskogee) Nation census is reproduced on microfilm 7RA-43.   The pages of this typed version are numbered consecutively from 1 to 349.  These numbers are listed on the new transcription as [frame] numbers to avoid confusion from the original page numbers.          

The original manuscript records in the SW National Archives are much more legible and unfortunately have not been microfilmed.  In the original manuscript census some towns do not have their pages numbered so it can not be determined the correct order of pages.   The census pages for Arkansas (Colored), Euchee, and Hillibee towns are not among the original census records and are presumably missing or were never taken for those towns, however, there are references to persons being "paid in Arkansas (colored) town".   There are about 385 original manuscript pages.     Sample image.
