Chippewa Treaty of Feb 7, 1839



Articles supplementary to certain treaties between the United States and the Saganaw tribes of Chippewa.

ART. 1.

Whereas the said tribe have, by the treaty of the 14th January, 1837, ceded to the United States, all their reserves of land in the State of Michigan, on the principle of said reserves being sold at the public land offices for their benefit, and the actual proceeds being paid to them, as farther defined by stipulations contained in the amendments to said treaty of the 20th December 1837, and of the 23d January 1838. And whereas it is required by a subsequent law of Congress, to erect a light-house on one of said reserves, called Na-bo-bish tract, lying at the mouth of the Saganaw river, and to reserve so much of the same from sale as may be necessary; it is therefore hereby agreed, by the said tribe, that for, and in consideration of the sum of eight dollars per acre, one sixteenth of a section of said tract, situated as aforesaid, shall be, and the same is hereby appropriated and set apart, to be located and disposed of in any manner the President may direct. And the same shall be reserved from sale, and all claim to any proceeds therefrom, except the sum herein before stipulated, is fully, completely and forever relinquished by said tribe.

ART. 2.

This compact shall be submitted to the President and Senate of the United States, to be approved by them, whereupon possession of the land may be immediately taken, and the usufructory right of the Indians thereto shall cease.

In testimony whereof, the Acting Superintendent pro tem. of Indian Affairs for the State of Michigan, duly authorized for this purpose, and the chiefs of said tribe, have hereunto set their hands and seals at Lower Saginaw, in Michigan, this seventh day of February, in the year eighteen hundred and thirty-nine.

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
