    Cherokee Boarding school at Trinity College 1880-1885

    Bishop Ortega Newbie

      Hello,

           

      I'm doing research on the Cherokee boarding school at Trinity College in Randolph County NC from 1880-1885. I'm looking for any photos of students, correspondence between the BIA or other Federal agencies about the school to or from the Eastern Band Cherokees and or Trinity College in particular the boarding school Superintendent J.L. Craven. I also found in my research that E.B.C Chief Nimrod Jarrett Smith had wrote the BIA asking for the children back and I can't find this letter, it would have been around 1884-85. It would be great if you could help find this letter as well.

       

      Thank you,
