A30. John Gunter was a Welchman and operated a powder mill in the Cherokee country in 1814.

A31. George Lowrey was born about 1770. He and his son in law David Brown had finished a Cherokee spelling book in English characters at the time that Sequoyah announced his invention. Lucy Lowrey nee Benge~ was born about 1786. She died on October 10, 1846 and he died on October 20, 1852.

A32. Tahlonteeskee was a prominent Chicamauga warrior in 1792. In the United States-Cherokee October 25, 1805 Doublehead, who ha hitherto been an implacable war chief was granted three separate tracts of one square mile each and Tahlonteeskee received a square mile of land on the north bank, of the Tennessee River, for their influence in negotiating the treaty. This action becoming unpopular, Tahlonteeskee emigrated to the Western Cherokee country where he was elected Principal Chief in 1818.
