Jared, I have some info that you may or may not have. Georgia Cherokee Land Lottery, 1838, 26th District, Second Section, Cherokee, John A. Jacobs, residence 248th, Jackson County.
"Whites Among the Cherokees"(Page 119) - Register of Winners of Land living in old Cherokee County (1832 Gold Lottery Fortune Draw) Nancy Jacob's ophan, resides in Section 4, Lot #1266, District 51, Section 3. (Page 122) Comparison of two published versions of the 1832 Gold Lottery - Original - Nancy Jacob's Orph Heritage Papers - Nancy Jacob's orph (page 43) Reservation for life, entitled Indian to the use and profit from the land but not to sell or give away. At the Indian's death the land reverted to the State of GA - 12. Jacob.
Hope this is of some help
