Natives known as Creeks

We received a wonderful question from a great reader of our blog, Katherine Grogan.  Katherine was hoping we could illuminate the history of the natives known as the Creeks in the Upson and West Central Georgia Area.  For fear of my limited knowledge on the subject, I turned to research, which was previously performed and printed in the September 10, 1964 Thomaston Times and the January 13, 1872 Thomaston Herald.   Thank you Katherine for such an incredibly thought provoking question and I hope the brief synopsis from each paper will help answer the question.
