Seeking information as to the family of Keziah Ward. The men in this Hughes
family were all said to be traders
and all have been said to have married Native American wives. Allied
surnames were Young and Anderson, settled in Buladean and Red Hill
Communities of Yancey/Mitchell County of Western North Carolina and East
Tennesee (Carter and Unicoi Counties).

John Hughs (b 1774 NC), married Native American Kezia Ward (b 1767 SC)
sometime before 1789. I believe that they had 7 children. The first born was
Elizabeth Ann Hughes (b 1789 SC). She married Richard Bonds II Jan 1812 in
Caldwell, Kentucky.
