Collection Number: A&M 3224


Photocopies of colonial era treaties made in the Carolinas between the British and Cherokees. The 1756 treaty is between the Catawabas and Cherokees and Virginia to ensure a previous accord at a time of Anglo-French strife in North America. The treaty of 1768 is between the Cherokees and the British Superintendent of the Affairs of the Indian Nations in the Southern District of North America, John Stuart, for the purpose of establishing boundaries between the subjects of both parties. Other items included relate to other land settlements, battle sites, and discrimination of Native Americans. Also includes a list of surnames of mulattoes in Virginia by county compiled by Bureau of Vital Statistics, Richmond. An addendum of 1998/05/19 includes photocopies of maps, photos, prints, and documents (mainly treaties) (1601-1890). Documents include Pennsylvania declaration of war on France (July 5, 1756); treaty of USA and Delawares (date unreadable); and treaty of Virginia and the Six Nations, Lancaster Courthouse (1744). Addendum also includes correspondence with Humbles regarding Cherokees and Native Americans (1994-1996).
