Oconee, Oconea, Hammond

Searching for the origin of the Cherokee name OCONEE or OCONEA (in Creek, OKUNI). My Hammond Family line is of Lumbee, Cherokee, and possibly Powhatan, Choctaw descent. Allied names are: Norfleet, Bullard, McSwain, Webb, Birdsong, Pilkington, others. Family lore says the remnants of the Lost Colony of Roanoke and the last of the Powhatan people joined the Lumbee tribe in NC and Virginia, eventually moving into the Great Dismal Swamp and later into Georgia. Some family members on the Trail of Tears. This Hammond line traces back to John Hammond, abt 1750. Any related information reciprocated and appreciated.
