1836 Census of Mix Blood Indians of Michigan



SURNAME INDEX

In 1836 a census was taken which enumerated the mixed-blood Indian person who resided at Sault Ste. Marie, Mackinac, St. Ignace, and the Grand River Valley of southern Michigan. This census lists 583 persons, providing information on blood quantum, tribal affiliation, location, family relationships and other data.


The reason for this census was Article 6 of the Ottawa and Chippewa Treaty of 1836, which provided a cash payment to the half-blood persons based upon certain criteria. In addition to being related by blood to the Ottawa and Chippewa who ceded land in the treaty, the mixed-blood person had to reside within the area ceded. Those persons not living in the area, or living in the area but not related by blood to the Ottawa and Chippewa ceding the land are not listed.

MiGen Graphic In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Michigan Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Michigan, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. My name is Rose Edwards and I'm responsible for Native Genealogy in Michigan. Please contact me if you would like to contribute to this database. If you would like to host a Michigan county, please contact Joan Brausch.

Please note That I do not do personal research. I do not have the time nor resources available to me, nor can I find a researcher for you .Everything that I have at this time is posted here. I will continue to search for new information that can be added to these pages.
Thank-you for your understanding and cooperation, Rose
