Seminoles who sold Creek allotments, 1833-4

Long story short, I grew up white but recently uncovered an astounding, and convoluted, Afro-Indian family history. In documenting it, I'd love to learn what became of 6 particular Hitchitis and 1 Apalachicolan who were counted in Alabama's 1832 Creek census and therefore received Creek land allotments, which they promptly sold to my ggg-grandfather.

For all the usual reasons, I'm having limited success.

I suspect that all of those who survived moved south and joined the Seminoles. Nulkarpucke Tustunnuckee is said to have led a band of rebels fleeing into Florida as the Second Creek War wound to a close. Holotoke may have been Micanopy's nephew Holatooche. Was Marchoeche perhaps the Seminole who received compensation after the Civil War as "Mah-Ko-yi-kee"? What became of the Hitchiti micco whom the census called Tunnechee? Did he and his neighbors Chintarle, Kochokonoharjo and Timholartike perish, or were they better known under different names?

I've done a fair amount of research (Littlefield, McReynolds, Wright, et al.) but would love to hear from anyone who recognizes any of these names and can help me solve this puzzle.
