Just to inform you about the Dawes. The Dawes was taken of those of the Five Civilized Tribes living in Oklahoma/Indian Territory between 1898-1906. Just for those in that area at that time period. So if your James Wesley was born in 1801 then his ancestors wouldn't be on the Dawes. You'd have to search the Guion-Miller, Henderson roll, the Mulley roll and those rolls pertaining to the Eastern Cherokee Nation. The Guion-Miller roll was taken to determine if those living in Indian Territory were entitled to money for property owned prior to the removal(aka Trail of Tears). This simpley means if the person applying for the Guion-Miller had family who owned property before the Trail of Tears then they could be endtitled to monies owed by the government. To my understanding though is all or most of those who applied for this roll were denied even if they could prove their ancestors lived in the East before the removal. There are a couple of books out that can help you with this. They are called Cherokee by Blood by Bob Blankenship. There are 2 volumes one listing the eastern rolls and the other listing the western rolls including the Dawes. Call or go to your local genealogical society/club and see if they have them.
