Lott Fayard Indian School was a consortium of schools in southern Mississippi begun for girls as well as boys and the registries of 2 of 5 the schools remain unaffected by flooding. The ledgers were kept by Ms. Johnson who was of the Paul B Johnson State Park line of Johnsons back to the founder of Marion Co, MS who was Capt John Lott and his Pamunky Neck originating wife, Sallie Lightfoot of the Arawak and Chowanoke ethnic communties self termed as Ga Ho Ga which is not a Cherokee word and she was not enrolled as such. The Duncan cousins did enroll, in part, into Cherokee. The itinerant Ms Johnson was the teacher 3 month at each school, with her itinerant teachers' enrollment/attendance records surviving Hurricane Katrina only in part. The other of the ledgers destroyed by flooding during Hurricane Katrina's damage to the basement of the Hancock Historical Societies' records.

This project put in the information for those with profiles attached directly or communally to the Pearlington, Logtown/Gainesville, Bayou La Croix, Lee's Creek, and Ford's Creek attending students who were descendants of the Marion County, MS "Old Churrah Regulator" group who were passported to Ft. Adams to await their personal reservations, over from their 2nd Reserve on the Little PeeDee, SC after their diaspora there from their Nottoway removals and Ft. Christanna forced schooling days --they wound up as Regulators in the Cherokee Wars after helping in the Colonial Wars at Hodges Ferry and Holden's Beach, NC after having been, in part, removed to a 1724 Small Pox Camp in Charleston, SC; after having been giving their first land reserves in Coropeake, Va; which meant quite a long diaspora that ended with reservations by Presidents Jackson and Van Buren in what was then Indian Territory and what is now Hinds Co, MS of which lands they flipped and name their new place: Cheraw, MS This was in the district that was to become the first seat of government by 1822, after Capt John Lott, Patriot under Pugh and his Southern Tucororans had fought in the Rev War and about 10 years after the War of 1812.
