I think the following signer is General ABERCROMBIE- I am trying to find information on James Wadsworth - any help would be deeply appreciated - his daughter married Arthur Rossetter of Milledgeville GA
The following letter to the Secretary of War 1833 is of great interest because it places James Wadsworth beyond a shadow of a doubt not only as living in Alabama (the repeatedly stated birth place of Mary Elizabeth Wadsworth, his daughter) but it also solidly places him as living on Creek Indian lands and among the Creek Indian Tribe:
Russell County Alabama near Columbus (Russell County was established by an act of the state general assembly on December 18, 1832, from lands ceded to the state by the Creek Indians).
8 September 1833
We beg permission to call to your immediate and earnest attention to a subject of deep interest to us, and to many other persons who are in our situation; but we shall content ourselves with a short and plain account of our own situation. We respectively have farms on the west side of the Chattahoochee River, and within the limits of the Creek nation. We obtained possession by the free and voluntary consent of all of the Indians who were interested; we have held and yet hold possession in the same way, not one of the Indians as far as we know or believe, being dissatisfied; we have built our own houses, made extensive clearings and now have crops of cotton and corn ready to gather.
On none of the previous orders against the intruders have we been included, or attempted to be molested, however we are now informed that new orders have been given by your office to the Marshall of Alabama for the removal of all settlers upon the Creek Lands and those orders are to be executed immediately...
One of us has cleared every foot of the land he now cultivates and pays this year nearly one dollar per acre rent for the privilege, two others have cleared theirs with the exception of a small quantity which they rented from the Indians in a large field, at an extravagant rate, a great part of which is uncultivated by the Indians this year; and the fourth pays such rent as is satisfactory to the owner for the last two years and of which he does not now complain. The loss and inconvenience which must now be sustained by us, in the event of such orders being now enforced, will be at once obvious to you for our cotton crops cannot possibly be gathered and removed for some time to come. If any one Indian complains that he has not received sufficient compensation for the use of his field, we are perfectly willing to pay respectively such additional sum as may be considered just and fair by any discreet agent of the government. We therefore appeal to your sense of justice and earnestly request that your orders to the Marshall may be so modified as to secure justice to each party and to allow us time peacefully to save and gather our crops, and then to remove our hands and property, if such should be the pleasure of the Government.
We, are Sir, respectively
your obedient servants,
J. G. WORSHAM
The Honorable Lewis Cass
Sec. of War
