22 Elizabeth was born evidently in 1843 but she could have been a twin of William. On Mar. 28, 1861 she married William Entrikin who was killed in the Civil War. They had two children, William, Jr. and a daughter, Margia Ann. She then married Jerome Burgess who was born 1833 in Alabama and died in 1924, Canoe, Al. area. They had several children and she died May 18, 1923, Canoe, Al. area. The children were: Rena, born in 1871,; Lillie, born in 1873; and aWalter, listed as grandson and he must have been illigimate son of one of the girls or a son of a son of Jerome and Elizabeth who had died. After they married, they lived for a time in the Pine Level, Fl. area and then in Canoe, Al. area.  Eliza Ann ALLEN
23 Note from James C. O'Neal:
Mary Jane was first child of James G. and Nancy Allen and evidently lived with them until about 1860. At this time she is in the household of a Phillip Faust and is listed as his wife but it appears she may have been a governess for the family of Faust who was an older man with several children. They lived in the area of the present Pensacola Library. Her parents lived on the same street at the time. Mary married in 1866 to George W. Murphy who was born in 1845 in Baldwin C., Al. Mary married as an Allen, not as Faust. At some later date, the Murphy family moved to Provo, Utah and joined the Morman Church. According to the record at Salt Lake City, she died at Provo in 1902. George Murphy is back in Monroe C., Al before 1920. They lived at Midway, Monroe C., Al. earlier. Maybe they just joined this Morman Center and really didn't move. I went to the Morman archives and one I researched was the Allens, but didn't find anything on James G. Allen other than what we already had. George Murphy, Jr. was listed as a member of the Alberkerque, N. M. Church. He was born in 1877; Elizabeth, born in 1872; Elvira L, born in 1873; Alexander, born in 1882; Leona C., born in 1884; George H., born in 1874; Nathaniel J., born in 1869; and probably others.  
Mary Jane ALLEN
24 Note from James C. O'Neal:
William M. Allen was born about 1842, could have been a twin to Elizabeth Ann. His service record says he was born at Blakely, Al.. It was the county seat for Baldwin Co. in the early days and probably where it was registered since it appears he was born in Blacksher. Also, his record shows he was born in 1838 and this appears to not be true. He cannot be found in 1860 census just after marrying Vinie. The census records vary all over his family information as to ages but the 1900 census for Jedda district, Monroe C., Al. where he was living show him born in 1842. I have gone through the census for Monroe, Baldwin, and Escambia C., Al. for 1910and 1920 but have not found him. I did find most of his family, mostly in Mt. Pleasant and Jedda Districts of Monroe C. According to family members he died in 1938. He served in the Confederate Army in Civil War and I'm hoping to find more on him there. The Henry Allen listed as his grandson, born about 1879 is near him in 1900 and has family in 1910. This must have been a son instead of grandson since William had no sons old enough to have children and no daughters old enough except Margaret who could have had illegimate children. The Arilla listed as his granddaughter in the 1885 census is listed as daughter in 1900 census. Vinie is evidently dead by 1900. The record on ages and names of children is vague and confusing. The best I have is :Margaret, born in 1861; Alexander, born in 1865; Laura, born in 1866; Alice, born in 1868; Nancy Renie, born in 1870; Florence, born in 1872; Samuel, born in 1876; Henry, born in 1877; Nora and Arilla [twins], born in 1879; Georgia, born in 1883; maybe Willis, born in 1888; Arthur, born in 1892; Mary L., born in 1899. William and Vinie lived in Molino, Fl. area but moved to the Uriah, Al. area before 1900. One of the clues I have looked at concerning the birth of William is that in the 1840 census of John and Nancy Boon family, there is a female between 15 and 20 and two males between 20 and 30. The Boons only had one daughter and none of the boys were yet married. I had assumed one male was James G. Allen and the female was Nancy. There is only one child under 10 and that has to be Alexander Boon. If this is true, then William was not born before 1840. Of course, this is speculation and not proof. There is a Sarah Stockwell in Molini, Fl., born in 1829.

23rd Congress No. 1229. 1st Session

Mr. C. Johnson, from the Committee on Private Land Claims, to whom was referred the petition of James Caulfield, reported:

That an act of Congress passed April 20, 1818, allowing Peggy Baily to enter 320 acres of land on the river Alabama, being part of section number seven, township five, range five, including the improvements made by Dixon Bailey, a half Indian, who had been killed at Fort Mimms whilst in the service of the United States, with a proviso in the following words: "Provided, that neither the said Peggy Baily nor her heirs shall have power of alienating said land, or any part thereof," in any manner whatever; and in case of the voluntary abandonment of the possession and occupancy of the said tract of land by the said Peggy Baily, or her heirs hereafter, the said land shall revert to the United States. The petitioner alleges she intermarried with Richard Robinson, and occupied said land until September, 1838, when they removed west of the Mississippi; a deed of conveyance is presented, signed "Peggy Baily, by her agent and attorney in fact, Benjamin Hawkins, " dated September 23, 1838, in Montgomery county, Alabama, conveying the said and to the petitioner for the consideration of one thousand dollars.

A power of attorney is also produced, bearing date March 4, 1838, signed by the said Robinson and Peggy Baily, reciting that they had lately removed to Arkansas, and authorizing said Hawkins to sell their interest in said tract of land. The said petitioner further alleges that he knew nothing of the proviso in the act of Congress at the time of the purchase.

The committee do not perceive the slightest ground, either in law or equity, for a confirmation of the claim of said Peggy Baily to the said James Caulfield. After the voluntary abandonment of said land by the said Peggy Baily, which must have taken place prior to March 4, 1828, if the recitations in the power of the attorney are to be relied on, the land became a part of the public domain, and the said Peggy Baily and her husband had no more claim than any other of the emigrants from that section of the country; and it can hardly be presumed that Benjamin Hawkins, who acted as her agent in the sale of the land, could have been ignorant of the provisions of the act of Congress of 1818, or that he would have committed so gross a fraud upon the present applicant. But if the truth was so, and the said Caulfield uniformed as to the provisions of that act, it furnishes no ground in law or equity for the United States to pay him for the fraud committed by said Hawkins in the sale of said land to him. And if the said Caulfield became the purchaser, as he alleges, and paid his money without having examined the title he was purchasing, it furnishes no good reason why the United Sates should pay him back the losses sustained by such gross neglect.

The Committee report a bill authorizing him to purchase the land at the governmental price, in consideration of the settlement and improvements made by him on said land.


Communicated to the House of Reprentatives February 28, 1832

Mr. Mardis, from the Committee on Private Land Claims, to whom was referred the petition of James Caulfield, reported:

That on the 20th of April, 1818, an act of the Congress of the United States was approved by the President, granting to Peggy Bailey, sister of Dixon Bailey, a Creek Indian of the half blood, who was slain in the service of the United States at the capture of Fort Mims, the rights to enter with the register of the land office, without payment, three hundred and twnety acres of land, so as to include the settlement and improvement of the said Dixon Bailey in the Alabama territory. That Peggy Bailey continued in the actual or constructive possession of said tract of land until the 23rd of September, 1828, when the said Peggy Bailey, having determined to migrate to the country west of the Mississippi, did, in conjunction with one Richard Robison, who married the said Peggy Bailey, the only other person interested in said tract of land, through their attorney in fact, Benjamin Hawkins, duly authorized, for and in consideration of the sum of one thousand dollars, sell and convey to the petitioner, the said three hundred acres of land. By the laws regulating Indian reservations the petitioner was informed at the proper land office that said land was forfeited to the United States so soon as the said Peggy Bailey abandoned the possession, of which law the petitioner swears he was ignorant at the time of the purchase, and the committee believe such to be fact from the adequate consideration given by the petitioner for said land. At the ensuing session of Congress a law was passed authorizing friendly Indians holding reservations to sell the same in fee simple upon condition of their removal west of the Mississippi. Peggy Bailey havong remoevd west of the Mississippi, and the petitioner having paid her, in the estimation of the committee, an adequate price for said land, it is believed by the said committee that the petitioner comes under the equity of the law now in force as regards all other Indian reservations, and have therfore reported a bill authorizing the petitioner to enter said land at government price.

29 Post made by E.S. Leslie:
Mary Bailey Sizemore had named her grandson, Elijah Padgett, as executor of her will in 1858. Shortly after the 1860 Baldwin County, AL census, Mary "Polly" Bailey Sizemore (101 yrs) added a codicil to her will stating that her grandson, Elijah Padgett, had "departed this life" and naming David A. Moniac as executor of her will in Elijah's stead. Mary "Polly" Bailey Sizemore died and her will was probated in 1862. The 1850 Baldwin Co., AL census shows Mary Sizemore age 80 (b. 1770) living next door to William and Levitia Moniac Sizemore, so there is about an 11 year difference in the ages on these two census records. However, all evidence points to this Mary Seymore age 101 being Mary "Polly" Bailey Sizemore.

REJECTED CREEK CLAIMS; APPLICATIONS EASTERN CHEROKEE/EASTERN CREEK were added together, recorded 20 March 1907 No. 18576, Ec Capita 11086. Application 3 18576 Written in the hand of Frank Boone, 13 March 1907, who resided at Jeddo, Alabama: "I claim Indian blood through my mother's family, the Moniac's".
We know now, what Frank Boone and family did not; that this was a Cherokee Claim only, and shyster lawyers made money off these folks who grew up with their Creek Indian families and applied as Creeks.
In his application here refers to his Indian name (or that of his ather?) as Semoice. This name is mentioned in the Act for relief of Susan Marlowe:
An Act to amend an act approved the accord of July, eighteen hundred and thirty-six, for the relief of Samuel Smith, Linn McGhee, and Semoice, Creek Indians, and also, an act passed the second July, eighteen hundred and thirty-five, for the relief of Susan Marlowe.

Be it enacted, &c, That so much of the acts for the relief of Samuel Smith, Linn McGhee, Semoice, and Susan Marlow, as restrict them to the entry of one section pf land, be, and the same is hereby repealed; and the said Samule Smith, Linn McGhee, SDemoice, and Susan Marlow, are hereby authorized to enter, without payment, and by legal subdivisions, a quantity of land not exceeding six hundred and forty acres each, which is subject to entry at private sale.

Approved, March 2, 1837

44 Chinnabbee was a Natchez leader who brought his people to Talladega in 1756 to live sheltered among the Creeks. The Natchez had been driven from their homes in Mississippi by the French. The picture at left shows how the Natchez hunted before they acquired horses, in a "surround" of wild game; the drawing is by Le Page DuPratz who has left us with many contempoary depictions of lifestyles of Indians in the colonial years. Click here to learn more of the Natchez.

Chinnabbee's sister was Nancy Grey. She married Joseph Stiggins an Englishman; their daughter Mary married William Weatherford; their son George Stiggins was a very good friend to the Creeks.

He had a brother who was living at Nauche in 1796 and was well-to-do.

During the Creek War, and probably due to his hatred for the French, Chinnabbee was friendly with the Americans and was made a Brigadier General of the Indian troops.

His small fort on the Coosa River was surrounded by Red Eagle's forces during the War. Selocta went to General Jackson pleading for help. Jackson gave light infantry who routed the Red Sticks.

Soon after Talladega was settled by whites, Chinnabbee was intoxicated and racing his horse, rode too close to a tree and was killed. 
45 He was the translator for General Andrew Jackson at Ft. Jackson treaty signing. He became Jackson's guide and Indian advisor. It was Selocta who translated the dramatic speech of Red Eagle.

After Red Eagle surrendered, General Jackson urged the Creek chiefs to move their people west to land given by the States. Selocta went to Jackson and argued against such action, reminding Jackson of the troubles he and his father Chinnabbee had endured while supporting the Americans. This is from McKinney & Hall's book regarding the situation and about Selocta: John Henry Eaton, in his "The Life of General Jackson" (1824) recalled the Creek's speech and added, "There were, indeed, none whose voice ought sooner to have been heard than Selocta's. None had tendered gretaer service, and none had been more faithful. He had claims growing out of his fidelity that few others had."

But Selocta learned a hard lesson. He soon realized that his efforts were for naught. Fidelity meant little to such as Andrew Jackson.The stage was now set for the Removal.
