Re: Finding old Negro Settlement in Indian Territo

That old settlement was reference several times in the House of Warriors reports...it was located on the north side of Canadian River which was Creek Territory prior to the Civil War....it was treated away for 30 cents an acre according to the treaty of 1866....
If I remember correctly, the settlement was mainly of Chickasaw Freedmen...who were force to live outside of the Chickasaw Nation boundary...I will find those documents and post them...
Its good to see where it was actually located...thanks for posting this...
