See http://www.thepeoplespaths.net/history/CherConfed.htm by Lars Gjertveit for more info and I believe our own Ken Martin on the Indian Territory page http://history-sites.com/mb/cw/itcwmb/index.cgi?noframes;read=4620 was looking for Mister Branic as well.

A good summary of the 5 Indian Nations and how they came to fight for the confederacy is available at http://digital.library.okstate.edu/Chronicles/v029/v029p324.pdf
