In 1818, the U.S. policy on Indian Removal
restricted the Quapaw to a reservation in Arkansas.
The western boundary, or Quapaw Line, began at
"the Little Rock." This was perhaps the first official
use of the name Little Rock. In 1824, a new treaty
pushed the Quapaw out, marking the beginning
of Indian Removal in Arkansas. In the 1830s,
nearly all of the Indians in the southeastern U.S.
came through Little Rock on their way to Indian
Territory. Hundreds of men, women and children
were transported on steamboats. The north side of
the Arkansas River at Little Rock became a major
supply point. Contractors made fortunes providing
rations to Indians. On February 4, 1839, the Little
Rock Times reported that the "last of the 228
emigrating Cherokees arrived at this place on the
steamer Victoria. Nine deaths have occurred since
the commencement of their journey; but in general
they look well and enjoy good health. In the
company is the celebrated [Cherokee] chief John
Ross, who buried his wife in this city on Sunday."
Quatie Ross lies at rest in Mount Holly Cemetery.
