Samuel King, 1700's North Carolina and Cherokee Indian Connection

It's been four years since I posted something about Samuel King, but I am a descendant of Samuel King and Elizabeth Underwood. Recently a King relative of mine started researching a rumor that has persisted in our family and that is not only are we Irish but that we also are Cherokee.

Does anyone else know about this with the Samuel King line? My King cousin said that the "elders" use to talk about how we chose to deny our Cherokee identity so as to not lose our land in North Carolina. Anywho, just checking to see if this might be true.

1769 in
Buncombe County, North Carolina.
