Phyllis, Yes, Catherine L. Lutts, b.7 Dec 1832, NC married A.J.James. she died 1 Jan 1874, Wayne Co. TN. (Wayne Co. 1860 Census). She was the daughter of John Lindsey Lutts, b. ca1795, d, 8 April 1873, Wayne Co. TN, buried in Gillis Mills Cem., Hardin Co. TN. Lots of the Lutts are buried there.
John Lindsey was the son of John Lutz. John's father was Pioneer George, to whom I referred in my previous message. I don't know who Manda Loots/Lutts was, although I suspect she was the widow of one of the cousins. I don't know any more about the James family.
You have the birthplaces switched for Adam and Mariah. She was born in SC and he in NC. She was my ggggrandmother and was a full-blooded Cherokee, although I have yet to find an official record of her.
