James Hall Land Transfer Document
Recording/report of land sales by individual Indian grantors
to Anglo Grantees
 
Thanks to Chief Blount and Dale Cox for an analysis of this document.  This is a page from the records of transfers of Creek reserves to white settlers following the treaty of 1832. There are several hundred pages of these.  The “Conchatti” in this document is not the Econchattimio that we know from here, it is the one near Montgomery, AL.  The U.S. Government sent Francis Scott Key (of Star-Spangled Banner fame) to investigate these transfers and confirm whether the Creeks were being defrauded of their lands by white speculators.  In some cases they were, in other cases not.  The Creek Nation at that time began at about Eufaula on the Chattahoochee River and ran north to the Tallapoosa River. As you will recall, the Treaty of Fort Jackson led separated the Creeks from the Florida border by transferring hundreds of thousands of acres to the U.S. government.  The lands just north of the Florida/Alabama line were not transferred by individual Creeks to individual whites, but instead where obtained from the Federal Land Office.

The Florida reservations (Econchattimico, Yellow Hair and John Blunt) were run under a separate agency.  Ekanachatte (“Conchatti” or “Concharti”) is a common Creek name that means “Red Ground.”  There were Red Ground bands in both central Alabama and in Florida.

The Hall mentioned may be the same individual buried at Rocky Creek Church, but the document refers to lands about 100 miles north in central Alabama.  – Thank you Dale Cox!

The primary families in the Dominicker community were Hall, Thomas, Bland (white man married a Thomas), Forehand (white man married a Thomas), and Simmons, as the documentation present shows. The family name of Simmons did not marry in until quite late (after 1880). Specifically after the Simmons man (censused as a ?Mu? farm laborer in Dale Co, ALA then as ?Indian? in Washington Co, FL) came in. This individuals Simmons family connects back to the Simmons? of Sampson Co, NC.
