Rebecca Box, Cherokee? not Choctaw

Why, for generations, have the descendents of Rebecca Box Jones tried to prove Choctaw blood when nowhere have I read or heard that she was anything but Cherokee? The family history says that Edward Box was captured by the Cherokee at age eight and raised by them. He married Wada Missouri (aka Elizabeth Newton) who is never identified as Choctaw, but was more likely Cherokee. So where does the Choctaw connection come from?
