Native American Bates Connection

Hi, my name is Angel. I've got lots of Native American blood in me (mainly Cherokee but recently found that I have some Pottawatomie in me as well). In my research I've discovered that an ancestor of mine married a Native American, I'm trying to figure out what tribe she is from.

William Bates (son of William Bates and Mary Ball), married Ester (or Esther) in 1741 in Gloucester Co., New Jersey. One of their offspring was Joseph Bates (don't know his birth or death information but he's the father of Thomas Bates who was born in 1705 in Gloucester Co., New Jersey and died 1785 in Waterford, Gloucester Co., New Jersey and Mary Shivers).

Anyone know what tribe Ester was from? I just started researching this line.
