*Raper* Mystery of Cherokee within the line.

Lately, I have stumbled upon a new mystery within my newest line that I’m researching Rapers. While  I have been trying to find Martha Raper’s father Thomas Raper with no success. Not even and inkling of it which is frustrating. I know when and where he was born 1761 in Surry County NC. and when he died I have a year but the place is in question  I can’t seem to find him in Stokes County NC or Virginia (county unknown) 

I have stumbled upon many posts on the Raper list boards that the Rapers were either Cherokee or had some Cherokee within them. I have yet to find whether my Rapers were in fact of Cherokee or not. Since I still haven’t been able to find much or anything on Thomas.
