Dear Ms. Austin,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
According to the USGenWeb Census Project, part of what became the state of Mississippi was claimed by Georgia or was under dispute between the U.S. and Spain. Unfortunately, the 1790 Census, the 1800 Census, and the 1810 Census rolls for Georgia and the Mississippi Territory did not survive. Mississippi became a state in 1817 and was included in the 1820 Census which did survive. We suggest contacting various local historical societies in Mississippi for assistance with your family research.
The National Archives has various records pertaining to Native Americans that have been microfilmed. The Armstrong Roll of the Choctaw was a census created in 1831 in regards to the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek. There is an alphabetical index to the census. Please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email for access information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
