Creek Relation lost

Surnames: Gayton, Gaiten, Carroll
Our verbal family history says that my 2nd great grandmother Amanda Evaline Gayton/Gaiten (1861-1939), was Creek Indian. The story goes when she married Thomas Carroll in 1882 he made her remove her name from “tribal records”. The first place her name appears is the 1880 federal census record, Bartow Georgia, living WITH the Carroll Family she later marries into. Her relation to the head of the household says stepdaughter, I don't believe that. I would like any direction anyone may have to finding anymore information or starting points. I know she was treated poorly by the family as was my great grandmother. We would like to honor what she was forced to leave behind. Thank you for whatever help you may be able to give.
