While working with Record Group 75 (Bureau of Indian Affairs), Entry 222 at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. I came across a deed of gift from James Hughes to his daughter Sarah.
RG75, Entry 222 is described in PI-163 thusly: “This series includes correspondence, property valuations, certificates of valuations, property returns, receipts for payments, petitions, depositions, registers, lists, schedules, notes, opinions, contracts, and powers of attorney. The records concern removal, valuatlon of property, claims, and other related subjects. Many of these records are preliminary versions of records among the records the Boards of Cherokee Commissioners, particularly those of the First Board.”
