B- Georgia Indian Villages, Towns and Settlements

A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Bissasha (Bissa-asha, ‘blackberries are ripe there’). A former Choctaw town on the w. side of Little Rock cr., Newton co., Ga. Judging from the stone implements and other debris lying scattered over its site, the town covered an area of about 10 acres, making it a rather small town as Choctaw towns were generally built. Brown in Miss. Hist. Soc. Publ., vi, 442, 1902.

Burges Town. A Seminole town, the exact location of which is unknown, but it was probably on or near Flint or St Marys r., s. w. Ga. Connell (1793) in Am. State Papers, Ind. Aff., i, 384, 1832.

Buzzard Roost. A Creek town “where Tom’s path crosses Flint r.,” Ga.; exact locality not known. There was another Creek town of this name on upper Chattahoochee r., w. of Atlanta. See Urquhart (1793) in Am. State Papers, Ind. Aff., n, 370, 1832.
