A few lists of traders and white citizens in the Creek Nation, Alabama.
(Last updated July 21, 2003)
This is a transcription of a few records from National Archives microfilm series M1334 and M234. Series M1334 reproduces records from the Creek Factory and series M234 reproduces letters received by the Office of Indian Affairs. Many of these are very hard to read and there are no doubt mistakes in the transcriptions. More background information regarding the transcribed records below can usually be found in the letters preceeding and following the record, on the microfilm.
