In 1835 with the change in the Constitution the Lumbee lost many of their rights. Perhaps some along with escaped slaves ventured into Okla Territory.
I read somewhere that there were several hundred free blacks living in IT well before the start of the Trail Of Tears. I don't remember reading where they came from though.
