In the two decades preceding removal, Creeks and other Indians in the South were under great pressure to distance themselves from their black relatives. Georgia and the United States seized Creek land in the Treaty of Indian Springs and the Treaty of Washington. After the Creek removal treaty of 1832, white land speculators began stealing Indian allotments. At this time, William Grayson purchased his father's slave, Judah, and married her.
