Hi all. My name is Bob Aldrich and I have been researching our family's connection to the Creek/Muscogee of Alabama since we received checks from the Bureau of Indian Affairs in the mid-1970s. Our family connection is through my paternal grandmother Bessie Mae Campbell Aldrich. There is much is-information about our family and how it connects with Creek Chief Menawa. I've just finished writing a book titled *The Campbells, The Creeks and Chief Menawa" looking into and hopefully unraveling some of the twisted threads and misinterpretations of family lore and comparing it to historical facts.
The families I've been working on include: Aldrich, Campbell, Rider, Weed, Cornells, and off-branches from those families.
I'd be interested in others who are researching the Creeks from Shelby, Jefferson, Tallapoosa, Coosa, Chilton, Jefferson and other surrounding counties in Alabama.
