2 editions published in 1832 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a letter dated March 3, 1832 from John Coffee to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor of Georgia (1831-1835), regarding the efforts to remove the Cherokee Indians from the state of Georgia. Coffee reports that he has conversed with numerous Cherokee leaders respecting their delegation in Washington, and the anticipated outcomes of congressional deliberations on the subject. Coffee then goes on to discuss ways to convince the Cherokees to emigrate. He expresses his confidence that most of the Cherokees will agree to enroll for emigration by October. Coffee goes on to boast of the popularity of the Georgia Guard amongst the Cherokees, and he criticizes the efforts of some to destroy his reputation. He makes reference to two missionaries to the Cherokees (Elizur Butler and Samuel Worcester) imprisoned by the guard and remarks that he has declined to auction off their property considering the move very impolitic at presen

Copy of Report of General John Coffee on the boundary line between the Creeks and Cherokees, 1829, Dec. 30, Florence, Alabama, [to] John H. Eaton by John Coffee( )
1 edition published in 1829 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This is a copy of a report dated December 30, 1829 from General John Coffee in Florence, Alabama to Secretary of War John H. Eaton regarding the boundary line between the Creek and Cherokee Nations in Georgia. Coffee's job was to ascertain, at Eaton's request, the true boundary line between those two Indian nations and the state of Georgia, and he details his travels and interviews with both Indians and white settlers about the true location of the boundary line. He mentions several documents given to him by Cherokee leader John Ross in support of the Cherokee claim about the boundary, including a copy of the Cherokee Phoenix that contained Ross's letter to Colonel (Hugh) Montgomery regarding Cherokee land claims. These enclosures do not survive with his report. Coffee goes on to express his opinions about where the line should be, asserting that Cherokees and Creeks had long shared common hunting grounds, that they had never seen fit to draw any boundary lines until 1821 when they drew a line from the Buzzard Roost (Georgia) to Wills Creek (Alabama), and that the Creeks had admitted giving certain lands over to the Cherokees long ago. The Cherokees had then settled those lands and had long been in possession of them. The state of Georgia's claims to those lands, Coffee concludes, have little evidence to support them
Letter, 1832 July 21, Head Quarters, [Etowah], Ch[erokee Nation] to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor [of Georgia], Milledgeville, Georgia by John Coffee( )
1 edition published in 1832 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This letter, dated July 21, 1832 from General John Coffee to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor of Georgia (1831-1835), relates to the arrest and trial of Mr. Brown, one of the Georgia surveyors in Cherokee territory. Coffee reports that Cherokee leader John Ross directed James McNair, Nicholas McNair, and Rily Thornton to arrest Brown and try him for violating the Intercourse Law of 1802. Brown was arrested and taken to Tennessee to be tried, but his case was dismissed by Judge Keith. Coffee says that he has already explained to the governor his reasons for delaying the arrest of the persons involved in seizing Brown. He also tells the governor that Cherokee chiefs in that area are in favor of a treaty and that Colonel Williamson has been travelling the Cherokee territory to rouse support for it
[Letter] 1832 May 13, Etowah, [Cherokee Nation] to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor [of Georgia], Milledgeville, Georgia by John Coffee( )
1 edition published in 1832 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This is a letter dated May 13, 1832 from General John Coffee in Etowah (Cherokee Nation) to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor of Georgia (1831-1835). Coffee reports that Colonel Williamson has not yet found the persons accused of illegally digging gold near the Carroll County line, so he proposes to station Sergeant Ray and a small detachment in the area to deter any further activity. He goes on to report that a Mr. Tait recently killed an Indian for stealing hogs. Coffee says that he regrets the incident and does not yet know if other Indians in the area will attempt to avenge this death. He cites this concern as yet another reason for stationing Sergeant Ray and his detachment in that area. Coffee closes the letter by noting that most of the surveys of the Cherokee land in northern Georgia are going well

1 edition published in 1832 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This is a letter dated January 9, 1832 from John Coffee at Winns Ferry on the Chattahoochee River to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor of Georgia (1831-1835), informing the governor that he has just arrived there and that he has already received numerous complaints about Indians in the area. He asks the governor's advice on one case in particular that concerns a white man who rented land from an Indian man. While he was renting the land, the white tenant added acreage to the land and, at the termination of his lease, the Indian took back all of the lands, including that added by his white tenant. The white man hired a lawyer who has in turn consulted Coffee
Letter [with sworn statement], 1832 Jan. 31, Gainesville, Georgia, to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor of Georgia, Milledgeville, Georgia by John Coffee( )
1 edition published in 1832 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This is a letter from General John Coffee dated January 31, 1832 to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor of Georgia (1831-1835), regarding a land dispute between several white men and Cherokee leader George M. Waters.

Letter, 1832 Feb. 5, Etowah, C[herokee] N[ation] to Wilson Lumpkin, Governor of Georgia, Milledgeville by John Coffee( )
1 edition published in 1832 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

He says that this plan is indispensable as there are many applicants for each place for rent. He complains that his few attempts to rent lands through private contracts have been troublesome. Coffee closes the letter by alleging that the Indians in the area are making some efforts to dig gold and that their attempts are a nuisance. He plans to station a detachment of troops nearby in order to prevent them from making any further efforts to mine the gold

Letter, 1832 Mar. 25, Etowah to Governor Wilson Lumpkin, Milledgeville, Georgia by John Coffee( )
1 edition published in 1832 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This is a letter dated March 25, 1832 from John Coffee in Etowah to Governor Wilson Lumpkin (Governor of Georgia, 1831-1835) in Milledgeville informing the governor that the two detachments sent out under Sergeants Young and Ray had returned the evening before. Ray, who was supposed to meet Young at Coosawattee and return with him through Ellijay to arrest two Indian chiefs named Whitepath and Sunday, was unsuccessful in his venture and returned without the two chiefs. Coffee considers Ray's mission a success, however, because he believes that it will send a message to inhabitants that they must obey the laws of the state. The letter also mentions a Sergeant Parker, who by chance came upon an Indian named Oulee who was wanted for the murder of a young man near Carroll Coun
