This document identifies the names and origins of the residents of Marmiton (Marmaton) Creek, which is a small branch of the Osage River near Fort Scott, Kansas. It lists the settlers who were free state or proslavery (or noncommittal) and the number of families who were in distress and needed relief aid. The first page lists the total number of settlers in each of the four categories (the proslavery residents outnumbered the free staters 47 to 33),and includes a brief description of the area and its prospects for development.
