    1832 · Worcester v. Georgia

    Age 10

    In 1830, U.S. President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act which required all Native Americans to relocate to areas west of the Mississippi River. That same year, Governor Gilmer of Georgia signed an act which claimed for Georgia all Cherokee territories within the boundaries of Georgia. The Cherokees protested the act and the case made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The case, Worcester v. Georgia, ruled in 1832 that the United States, not Georgia, had rights over the Cherokee territories and Georgia laws regarding the Cherokee Nation were voided. President Jackson didn’t enforce the ruling and the Cherokees did not cede their land and Georgia held a land lottery anyway for white settlers.

    The old city cemetery, believed to be the oldest established in Henderson in the mid-1840s, is situated on land that originates from the 1845 W. F. Johnson survey. The original deed records are not available due to a fire in the courthouse in 1878. The first identifiable marked grave is that of William H. Still who died on July 1, 1851, although burials from much earlier dates are likely. Over half of the cemetery served the African American community of Henderson. Buried here are merchant Mack Biggers (1879-1947), businessman Mose Reedy (1855-1950), veterinarian Dr. George Ross (1865-1943) and many other descendants of the black community. The wrought iron fence that separated the black and white sections of the cemetery has been removed.
