My g-g-g-grandmother was Martha "Mattie" Pace. Her father was Joseph Martin
who was born in Burke County, N.C., according to the 1906 Eastern Band of
Cherokee Indian Applications. He died about 1846 in Walker County, Georgia.
He married Mary Hunt.
His father was John Martin. My 3g-Grandmother Mattie made application to be
included on the Cherokee rolls. She claimed that John Martin was her
Great-Grandfather and his Indian name was Tsu Ni Tlu Tlu or Ton Tsu.
I cannot take credit for the research that dug up this information and I do
not know how to obtain copies of the applications made to the Cherokee
people. I hope this helps you and maybe you could enlighten me about how I
could find these records.
Mary
