      South Carolina really had nothing to do with this area in relation to the Native Americans.  Any natives left here after the Trail of Tears would spend the rest of their existence trying to be "white."  Because of persecution?  No.  They weren't really persecuted, but they had to pay higher taxes.  Its going to be hard proving NA ancestry in a family that has spent 150 years trying to escape NA heritage.  Most of the time they would be listed as "FPC" (Free Presons of Color) on the early 1800s US census.
