All Ancestors listed below, were listed as Eastern Creek Ancestors in the Eastern Creek Docket Claims. 1,592 Elizabeth E. Ward Decendants Applied, most were approved. Well over 1300 were elgible in the claims. 200 Descendants filed under John Ward, they were rejected by the (BIA). I will get you the stats on Nahoga. Most all Jackson Knight Eastern Creek Claims were rejected, yet Peter Knight's Descendants were accepted! James B. Ward did not have but a small number of Claimants. Most all filed under Eliizabeth E. Ward. That seems to be the line that had the proven Indian. At least according to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and those that sent the documents in.
I would like to answer your question as far as EASTERN CREEK ROLL NUMBERS, HERE THEY ARE:
NAHOGA WARD (EASTERN CREEK ROLL) EC Roll NO. 11032
ELIZABETH E. WARD (EASTERN CREEK ROLL) EC Roll NO. 11147
JOHN WARD (EASTERN CREEK ROLL) EC Roll NO. 11148
JACKSON KNIGHT (EASTERN CREEK ROLL) EC Roll NO. 11068
These are not Tribal Roll Numbers, but they are Eastern Creek Docket Judgement Fund Roll Numbers, Assigned by the (BIA) Bureau of Indian Affairs from 1968 to 1984, to each Individual Eastern Creek Ancestor, who was Identified in Old Creek Nation Treaty Documents, before the Removal West.
All living Eastern Creek Descendants who filed their Claim Applications and Submitted Eastern Creek Ancestry Treaty or Indian Census Documents with all of their Ancestor pedigree charts. These Descendants were each assigned an Individual Eastern Creek Application Number, which was different than their Identified Eastern Creek Ancestor Numbers, they traced
back to, or were connected to by Direct Lineal Descent.
Each Eastern Creek Application was supposed to Contain a Creek Nation 1832 Creek Census Document, or an 1814 Creek Treaty Land Reservation Document, and any Familial Direct Lineal Documents, which contained evidence to (BIA),used to trace back to the Eastern Creek Indian Ancestors who were Identified on those 1814 Creek Treaty Documents or 1832 Creek Indian Census Documents, and were assigned an EC Ancestor Roll Number. Most of those documents were sent back to the Descendant Applicant, after a copy was made!
Three Creek Indian Docket Claim Numbers derived from three Indian Claims Commission Cases that were Awarded to all documented proven and elgible Eastern Creek Descendants. Here are the Docket Numbers. Docket 21, 272 and No. 275.
The Roll Numbers connect the above Eastern Creek Ancestors to Creek Nation Treaty Reservation Documents. I have copies of the Treaty Documents on John Ward, Jack Ward, his Widow and Heirs, Nahoga Ward. Will be happy to post copies at any website who wants them!
The National Archives Special Acts, Record Group 49, has the Treaty of Fort Jackson 1814 Claim Documents for Jack Ward, his Widow and their Heirs, if anyone is interested? The Claim Documents would most likely list the Names of All Heirs, or children of Jack Ward and his Creek Indian Widow.
I know they do with the heirs of the other Eastern Creek Ancestor Treaty Dicuments. This should clear up any of the
questions about how many children they had, and give names of all their children who were living in the year 1814.
Forth Worth Federal Archives, has copies of all the Eastern Creek Descendant Docket Applicants with Pedigree Charts and the actual Applications, if you want to order them, Here is where to contact:
Archives used to charge $10.00 PER Application, kind of expensive. If they have put them all on Microfilm by now, it would be quite less expensive to just purchase the Applications on Microfilmed Rolls. Microfilm price per Roll used to be $45.00 per roll. Each Micro Roll would contain hundreds of Applications, if they have them for sell by now, but they probably won't. You will most likely have to order each Application Individually!
