1835 Henderson Roll

The following is the 1835 Cherokee East of the Mississippi Census or otherwise known as the Henderson Roll. This is only an index of the names. Researchers should consult the full roll in order to get more specific information on each family listed.

In 1835, the Cherokee Nation contained almost 22,000 Cherokees and almost 300 Whites connected by marriage. This roll enumerates 16,000 of those people under 5,000 different families.

  1. Looking for information on my 5th great grandmother Sara Sally Bushyhead who married Tobias Lassiter who’s grandmother was a Cheroenhaka Nottoway Indian Prudence Lassiter.

  2. Trying to find information on a Samuel Foster and Common law wife Ta-ke and family members listed on Henderson and Drennan rolls. The family was removed from Georgia to The Saline district in Oklahoma where the name changed to Ballou but sometimes went by Foster. I would like to determine if he was somehow related as a immediate family member of James Foster who was prominent in the Georgia Cherokee area . James Foster was the son of James Foster Sr and Nancy Ca-ho-ga Lightfoot. . . Thanks

    Looking for information on my great grandmother Idella Chippee ( not sure about the spelling of her first name ). She was full blood cherokee, born 1870 thru 1880 and married Ellsworth McCormick. They relocated to the Ohio Valley area. Any and all help will be appreciate.

  5. I have a great-great grandmother named Susan Ann “Sussiane” Bell born around 1846 in Georgia, married Rueben H Dyess in Alabama in 1866, and lived in Indian Territory in Oklahoma. I was told she was native american but cannot find any birth record, name change, etc. No real record before getting married. Would appreciate any help you may give me. She has a daughter named Ida Emily and a grand daughter Lucille Hudson (my grandmother)

    1. Tribal members were not considered to be US citizens, so they do not appear on the US censuses until 1900. That could be why she doesn’t show up. It can be difficult to trace Native American ancestors.

    2. Hello. There is a person named Michael White who has your Susan Ann Bell and Rueben Henry Dyess in is tree. He has her parents as Adam Bell and Eleanor Cornelia McFarland. The family is on the 1850 and 1860 US censuses in Franklin County, GA. They are listed as white. Susan’s name is transcribed mistakenly by ancestry as Swan on the 1860 census. Michael White doesn’t have any parents listed for either of her parents. The census records say Adam Bell was born in North Carolina. Eleanor/Elenor/Ellen is listed as from Georgia. There are several other people who have trees with them in it and a picture of the couple.

      1. Jane Hayes, thanks for the info. That may not be the same Susan. Her middle name is Jane. Also birth year is 1845 not 1846. Could be people put wrong info. Just not sure.
