Each year, Trinity College published annual bulletins for prospective and current students, which included the college policies, curriculum, and application information. Lists of trustees, faculty, and students--including their hometowns--were also included. The Cherokee students first appear in the 1880-81 bulletin, at the end of the "Special & Preparatory Students" section. The class rolls can often be found toward the end of each bulletin.
