Dear Ms. Klem,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Eastern Cherokee Census Rolls, 1835-1884 in the Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (Record Group 75) that has been digitized and is available via the Catalog. We suggest that you search the Henderson roll index which has been sorted by state and then consult the Catalog census rolls for more information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
