Re: Free Persons of Color Move to Indian Territory

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.
