    Passports into the Indian Lands to harvest crops
    Passports into the Indian Lands to harvest crops
    John Wallace, William Wallace, and Moses Justus/Justice had gone into the prohibited Indian lands and started farming before the lands were open for settlement. They "obtained passports 12 Apr 1798-for the purpose of removing their property from the Indian lands and taking care of their grain, that is now growing." NOTE: In 2015 when I was at the Tennessee State Archives I asked to see the original passports but was told by their staff that the only information they had was what Potter had written in her book. Now that I have the exact location of the records in the Papers of Governor John Sevier, I will try again to locate the originals.
    Misc 2 Oct 1798  Blount Co, Tennessee, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    The Treaty With The Cherokee, 1798, also known as the First Treaty of Tellico, was signed on October 2, 1798, in the Overhill Cherokee settlement of Great Tellico near Tellico Blockhouse in Tennessee. This treaty served as an addendum to the Treaty of Holston and was the only treaty between the United States and Native Americans executed during the administration of President John Adams. The treaty was signed by Thomas Butler and George Walton, commissioners of the United States, and some thirty-nine Cherokee chiefs and warriors, in the presence of Silas Dinsmoor, Agent of the United States among the Cherokee, and thirteen other witnesses including Charles R. Hicks, who served as interpreter. 
    Correspondence 23 Oct 1798  Knoxville, Knox Co, Tennessee, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    A letter from George Walton and Thomas Butler who acted for the US government at the Tellico Treaty, to Andrew Thompson and John Wallace representing the citizens of Maryville, indicates that they have been addressed with approval by the citizens for their efforts in the late treaty. They stated that in the discharge of their duty they were urged by a knowledge of the suffering of the victims and were happy to have been an instrument of their relief. "They can now return to the settlements they have made and continue their occupancy upon the same terms as at the time of their removal. Their claims upon the soil being neither diminished nor increased by the events that have taken place."
