Description

Excerpt from Address of Hon. David Walker, of Fayetteville, Arkansas: On the History and Resources of the State, by Appointment of Governor Garland, at Judges Hall, Centennial Grounds, Philadelphia, October 16, 1876 The Quapaws, another numerous tribe of Indians, occupied a country south of the Arkansas River, commencing at a point some forty miles above the Post of Arkansas; thence up the Arkansas River to the city of Little Rock thence south and east to the south west corner of Drew County. This territory was acquired of them by treaty of 1824, and they were removed west of the State, on Red River, and settled with the Caddo Indians. As early as 1806 a portion of the Cherokee Indians settled above Point Remove on the Arkansas River, and by treaty of July 17, 1817, acquired title to all of the country west of a line from the mouth of Point Remove on the Arkansas to a point on White River, about three miles above Batesville; thence up White River to a point where Du Buque is now located; thence west of south to the mouth of Frog Bayou. To this country a large number of Cherokees were transported from their country east of the Mississippi River; in addition to which detached bands of Shawnee and Delaware Indians occupied villages above the mouth of the Buffalo fork of White River, one of which is where Yellville, the county seat of Marion County, is located.
