Extremely scarce Alabama Creek Indian land grant from the 1832 Treaty of Cusseta

Partly-printed DS as president, one page, 11.5 x 17.5, June 1, 1843. “Whereas, Mary Wells (Wife of William J Wells) one of the Creek tribe of Indians, by virtue of a Treaty between the United States and the said Creek tribe of Indians, made the 24th day of March 1832, became entitled, out of the Lands ceded to the United States by the said Treaty, to the East half of the Section, in Township fourteen of Range Twenty three East, in the Tallapoosa Land District Alabama, containing three hundred and twenty acres, and forty four hundreths of an acre.” Signed at the conclusion by Tyler and countersigned by Recorder of the General Land Office J. Williamson. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, one passing through the upper portion of a couple letters of last name of signature, scattered toning, and a small area of paper loss to right edge. On March 24, 1832, the Creek Tribe and US government agreed to the Treaty of Cusseta, which moved most of the tribe to Oklahoma. After two Creek rebellions with the military, most of them did move, with a few allowed to remain with land allotments and protection. Those remaining in Alabama eventually became the Poarch Band of the Creek Tribe, living on 230 acres on the only Federal reservation in Alabama. Around the beginning of Tyler’s second term, most land grants were secretarially-signed. In 30 years, only three of these Indian US Government land grant documents from 1832 have come up for auction. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
