Native American Heritage
We WELCOME your sharing of any information about your ancestors!
There were probably many intermarriages that took place, but due to the Georgia Laws regarding Native Americans, the individuals may have faded into the white culture which makes research extremely difficult.
The Muscogee Indians were the first settlers
of this section of Georgia. The more common usage of "Creek Indians" derived
from the fact that they lived along the Creeks, and the White Man used this term.
Images of 1832 Creek Indian Census. I'm not sure where this was taken -- but most Creek moved Westward out of GA, so their roots would have been in GA.
