Chickasaw representatives Levi and George Colbert, Tishominko, William McGillivray, Samuel Seeley, Sr., and other Chickasaw leaders met with U.S. delegates, including President Jackson, in Franklin, Tennessee. The Treaty with the Chickasaw, 1830 (also known as Franklin Treaty) was signed on August 31, 1830. The Chickasaw were forced to cede their lands in return for land west of the Mississippi River. In addition, the United States would pay the tribe $15,000 annually for twenty years. On October 15, 1830, a Chickasaw delegation, headed by Levi Colbert, set out to explore territory the west of the Mississippi River. However, when the party could not find an area deemed suitable for a new home, the treaty was not ratified by the U.S. Senate and became void.
