The treaty of August 6, 1846 provided for payment to “Old Settlers” in Indian Territory or their heirs. The census was taken in preparation for the payments to be made. No roll of the actual payments has been found to exist.
The first microfilm in this set of 2 contains the INDEX to the payment rolls for Old Settlers Census, 1896. The lists are separated into living and deceased.
The second microfilm contains the 1895 Old Settlers Census and lists of deceased settler’s heirs.
