Okay the 1840 Census lists residents of "White Township."
Yet records indicate that in 1840 there were only 3 political townships, Osage, Prairie and Van Buren.In the next census White Township is gone.I can't find records of it anywhere else, at least through Google.The 1840 Census also lists Upper Osage Township.
Most of Carroll county at this time was within the Osage - Cherokee 'territory.'Does anyone know what the deal is here?
If my ancestors lived in White Township, does that mean that they were Cherokee like family legend says??
