I am currently accumulating documentary materials on Dr. John Sibley (1757-1837) of Natchitoches, Louisiana, Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana. Sibley, a Sutton, Mass. native, lived in Fayetteville, North Carolina from 1784-1802, and in Natchitoches, Louisiana from 1802- 1837. He was appointed Indian Agent to the Caddo Tribe under Thomas Jefferson, and was very active in Natchitoches affairs, and La-Tex frontier activities. He served as State Senator for Louisiana, parish judge, colonel of militia, and contract surgeon for government troops in Natchitoches. I am especially interested in any Sibley correspondence (to or from Sibley), manuscripts, or journals. I believe I have adequate geneology information and other secondary source materials. If you have any Sibley primary materials or know of any, please contact me:
