During the Rev. War, Alabama was totally within the bounds of the
Creek, Cherokee, and to a degree, the Chickasaw and Choctaw Nations.
Later, it was "The Mississippi Territory," and did not receive
Statehood until 1818. Although Andrew Jackson subdued the Creeks , to a
in 1814, all the territory East of the Coosa River, (up to Wills
Vallley, which was Cherokee) was in Creek hands until 1830-1831, and
was called "The Tallapoosa Land District." The first counties east of
the Coosa were formed beginning in 1832.
If Mr. Grierson was married to a woman from the Tallapoosa area, I
believe she most likely was a Creek. Have you checked any of the Creek
Rolls, or their supplements? Perhaps he was a Trader to that Nation,
and there may be some reference to him, somewhere(?)
