How are they listed on the census? I'm from that area (Lancaster) many of my ancestors were listed as mulatto when they were known to be descended from Indians. Many lived along the Catawba from Camden to Lancaster. The Cherokee are mentioned in Kershaw History or Camden, its so close. Many people claim Cherokee more than Catawba in the area. There's a man who moved to our area who is from the North Carolina cherokee. He named his land Cherotawba, he's called Cherotawba D. since the land was considered catawba land, that area between lancaster and kershaw, really all along that river was Catawba or the smaller river tribes that later came to be known as the Catawba but the XCherokee also claimed it as hunting ground. So the brood river (Columbia, SC area) was named the dividing line between the Catawba and cherokee land But I'm sure both groups lived on both sides.
