Capt. John LIGHTFOOT who was father of Dorcas Lightfoot (Dorcas m. Benge m. Duncan ) who was at least half Cherokee. (Dorcas is said to have been sister to Nancy LIGHTFOOT who m. FOSTER and ADAIR).
John LIGHTFOOT was a trader and English representative and soldier in the Cherokee lands.
In Cherokee Planters In Georgia 1832-1838 by Don Shadburn it states on p. 220: Dorcas DUNCAN, "a half-blood old woman" on the Etowah river, widow of Charles Gordon DUNCAN, a white man, took a reservation of 640 acres under the Cherokee treaty signed 7/6/1817. This tract was surveyed on Wahoo (Warhoo or Waughoo) Creek in Hall County.
In 1823, like many other reservees, she sold her reservation of land to Georgia commisioners, receiving $1500 on 6/21. DORCUS DUNCAN's (nee LIGHTFOOT) improvements in Lumpkin County joined the land of her son-in-law, James LANDRUM (he married Rebecca DUNCAN and had 13 children), and were "pointed out' to the agents by her grandson, Charles E. Landrum.
Mrs. Dorcus DUNCAN ( nee Lightfoot), a member of the Deer Clan, had changed her residence to Cherokee County at the time of the removal treaty.
