Cherokee Roots part of your family Phipps

Sarah A Huffaker filed a Guion Miller application. Her mother was Elizabeth Helton married to James Phipps from NC.
Their Children were:
Sarah A Phipps Huffaker
Jane Phipps
Martha Phipps b. Jan 30 1847 died June 18 1895
Virgie Phipps
Nancy Phipps
Venia Phipps
Columbus Phipps married a Cherokee of the Ross family and was admitted in OK
Joseph Phipps
Most of these children were born in Murray Co. GA or Cherokee Co. GA.

Elizabeth Heltons mother was Sallie Helton part of our line. She and her sister Ruth Helton married Matoys. Direct descendants of the famous Matoy or Moytoy line. Ruth's husband was commonly called Old Man Matoy and Sallie's husband was a half brother to him. The Matoy brothers were descendants of a line of leaders in the Cherokees. We have a history of Ruth going west in 1834 with Mr Matoy and 201 other Cherokee Families. She claims to have brought nine children west.

If any of you can add to this research it would be greatly appreciated. Sarah A Huffaker was rejected and Columbus Phipps claimed through his wife.
