Native Americans in the Trader family

Surnames: Trader, Armitrader, Armitrading
Hello,

I have always been told that there was Native American (Cherokee)in my family, and believe me we do look it. We are descended from the Trader (Armitrader, Armitradeing). There are records of an Arthur Trader serving as an Indian spy in the revolutionary and Lord Dunmore's war (1774). And of the daughter to an Arthur in the previous generation being called "little sqaw" on account of her "handsome features and abundant black hair" but there is nothing really concrete.

just wondering if anyone knows anything,

thanks!
