1924 Baker Roll

The final roll of the Eastern Cherokee, prepared by United States Agent Fred A. Baker, pursuant to an act of the 68th Congress, (43 stat., 376), June 4, 1924. Before preparation of this roll, the Act required that all land, money, and other property of the Tribe be transferred to the United States for final disposition. Termination of the Tribe as a government and political entity was the ultimate goal. After termination efforts failed, the Tribe continued to use the 1924 Baker Roll as its base roll. Descendants of those persons of the original Baker Roll are enrolled on the Baker Revised Roll, providing they meet the membership requirements of the Tribe.

    When searching for your lineage, be prepared to search every list not just what you think might be the location. Most lists are detailed fir a given geographical region yet people were relocating in order to survive, they might be listed while in transit through other areas not considered. Keep searching it can take a very long time to find your lineage, I found mine but because of a photo from a museum in Missouri, check out possible names, but possible locations but look on a map during the time period, something might give you direction toward solution. My father’s mother’s father’s father was an immigrant named Philip E Jehle-Romanov between 1880 & 1887 immigrated to Missouri from Russia he was 64% Russian and was a Tsar, I am now searching for others to locate their list history. I am retired but know how to find needles in an ocean my time is infinite and I enjoy solving mysteries.
