1835 · Treaty of New Echota

Age 31

A minority group of Cherokees including John Ridge, Major Ridge, Elias Boudinot, and Stand Waite, signed the Treaty of New Echota which ceded all Cherokee territory east of the Mississippi in exchange for five million dollars. The majority of Cherokees did not agree and 16,000 Cherokee signatures were gathered to protest the treaty. Boudinot and both Ridges were killed several years later by angry Cherokees for signing the treaty.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of several places named Whitworth, from the Old English byname Hwīta meaning ‘white’ (or the adjective hwīt ‘white’) + Old English worð ‘enclosure’. The chief places of this name are in County Durham and Lancashire, but the surname is fairly evenly distributed throughout northern England and the Midlands.
