Have you seen http://coweeta.uga.edu/publications/2004_jurgelski_uga.pdf?  It is rich in sources and may give you some other documents to research to find your answers.

I thought this was interesting....

"The third Indian countrymen, Andrew Bryson, was equally unlucky at love. Like Morris and Reid, Bryson applied for an individual reservation under the terms of the Treaty of 1819.67 The reservation was never surveyed, however. In the early summer of 1820 Bryson’s Cherokee wife Sally left him after a dispute with his daughters from a former marriage, at which point, according to a cynical government official, Bryson, “like another Mark Anthony pursued his Cleopatra into the Cherokee nation where he remained during life.”68

Do you thank that if these are my Grandparents,  Then what Indian tribe and who should I talk to.
And no I haven't seen this before.
I'm not sure if it is your grandparents or not. But the place is right, the names are right, and the year seems reasonable, so it could be them.  It all starts with a theory.  IF it is them and If they were part of a group that attracts this kind of scholarly study, then you may learnmore about them and their families by digging into some of those sources.

Each section of the document has references including land records, depositions, books, journals and articles related to the Cherokee.  

Happy researching!
