George Lowrey
Birth: 1770
Tennessee, USA
Death: Oct. 20, 1852
Cherokee County
Oklahoma, USA

Native Cherokee Chief. Born Agin'-agi'li and known as Rising Fawn, his father came from Scotland and his mother was the daughter and granddaughter of Echota Cherokee chiefs. He was respected in the tribe as a courier, banker, soldier, translator, law enforcement officer, planter, breeder, and political leader. In 1792, he met with President George Washington as delegate for the Cherokee Nation to form protection for the Cherokee Territory from settler over population. His efforts resulted in the Treaty of 1819 and he received a medal from President Washington. In 1828, he was elected Assistant Principal Chief and he was Principal Chief and President for the council of the Eastern Cherokees at the Washington meeting in 1839, to fuse the eastern and western divisions into the present Cherokee Nation. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
