↑ 3.03.13.23.3 per affidavit and application to the Eastern Cherokee Court of Claims.
The U.S. Court of Claims ruled in favor of the Eastern Cherokee Tribe's claim against the U.S. on May 18, 1905. This resulted in the appropriation of $1 million to the Tribe’s eligible individuals and families. Interior Department employee Guion Miller created a list using several rolls and applications to verify tribal enrollment for the distribution of funds.
The applications received documented over 125,000 individuals; the court approved more than 30,000 individuals to share in the funds.
To be approved for funds the individual must:
Be alive as of May 28, 1906
Establish that he/she was a member or descendants of a person that had been included in the forced removal to Indian Territory, known as the “Ross Party”
Not be affiliated with a tribe other than the Cherokee
Submit an application that had to be received by August 31, 1907. Parents or guardians were given the opportunity to apply for minors and persons of unsound mind. Most of these later applications were rejected due to late receipt; however, all contain important individual and family history information.
These applications include:
Applicant’s English and Indian names, date and place of birth
Names and ages of brothers and sisters
Place of birth and date of death of parents and grandparents
Spouse and children
Names of extended family
