Apalachee Tribe

The Apalachees lived in and around Moblie, Mobile County, from about 1705 to 1765.

A part of this tribe lived for a time among the Lower Creeks and perhaps in this State. Another section settled near Mobile and remained there until West Florida was ceded to Great Britain when they crossed the Mississippi.
