Please close this window to return to the results screen.

The Guion Miller Rolls were created for disbursement of funds stemming from three court of claims cases that were ruled in favor of the Eastern Cherokee and Cherokee Nations. Over $1,000,000 in assets were to be distributed. The funds were to be distributed to Eastern and Western Cherokee who were alive on 28 May 1906 and could establish that at the time of the treaties they were members of the tribes or were descendants of such persons.
